Quick Succulent Centerpiece
I threw away the 'preserved' boxwood and took the box with me to the nursery so I knew that the pots I selected would fit. I had no time for re-potting and I needed to be able to move them easily when they got bigger.
Now, lets get started. Take your empty box or sewing drawer...
Put your pots in them and you're done. See! Easy!
I'm sorry, what did you say? They look ugly with those pots sitting there above the top of the drawer? I agree. This is where Hobby Lobby came in...

I placed my succulents back in there and the pots were perfectly covered. The only thing I didn't care for was the crappy potting soil I could see in that second one.
Luckily I had some pebbles that just 10 minutes earlier I wondered "what the hell am I going to do with these?" Sorry for the blurry pic...I was just too excited that they blended in so well.
I put the side with the seam in the kitchen so guests wouldn't see it and boom...quick, instant centerpiece that should last me all summer and fall long.
It didn't even matter that I wasn't here for a month to water them! I watered them the day before we left on vacation and put them near a window (not in it though so as not to scorch them) and they did beautifully. I came back, gave them a little water and they were good to go!
There are many different varieties of succulents with different light recommendations so take that into consideration if you're going to keep yours indoors.
