Planty Projects: DIY Succulents in Mini Lace Terra Cotta Pots

I finally got around to my latest planty project - succulents in mini lace terra cotta pots. 
Although I tried to give most of the succulents away as party favors at the Fiesta, I still have a handful hanging around the house in obnoxiously bright yellow cans. Over the weekend I finally transferred a few to mini terra cotta pots {.77 at Home Depot} and wrapped them up in lace ribbon.
I wish I came up with this idea myself. Truth be told, I was totally inspired by Honey We're Home's Mini Lace Potted Plant. She sure is clever.
Wouldn't these make for the cutest housewarming, thank you, welcome, etc. gifts? Succulents require little to no maintenance since they thrive off of neglect. We water our succulents maybe once a month, and even then, we only sprinkle a few drops of water onto the plant.

  8. So I just started a 101 in 1001 and one of my goals is to keep a potted plant alive. (If I usually don't kill them, my cat surely will.) I think I just found my secret weapon...
