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 SĂ©bastien.

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).

And VoilĂ !

What do you think?  Do you think he’ll like it?
Have a FABULOUS day!!

P.S.  I’ll be linking this project to these Parties.
