I’ve been trying to find the perfect Father’s Day gift for my hubby. I was thinking of something to go on his desk at work. Something that would remind him of his girls.
This is what I came up with:
A few years ago my father gave me some Hen & Chicks (succulents) which came from my grand-mother’s plant (I believe it came from her mother’s plant). My sister mentioned that she put a few in a pot. Since mine is growing like crazy, I thought I could easily take some and put a few in little pots for Sébastien.
I picked up little terracotta pots and a rectangular white plate from the dollar store. (I didn’t want it to be too big for his desk.)
I also wanted the pots to be personalized. With the help of Gabrielle we painted the terracotta pots with chalk paint.
Step #1: We took out the chalk paint. Step #2: We applied two coats of chalk paint. Step #3: We also put a little bit of chalk paint on the inside rim.
Step #4: We dug up some Hen & Chicks (succulents). Step #5: We filled the pots with potting soil. Step #6: We planted the Hen & Chicks (succulents).
