I did a fun and easy garden project the other day with my daughter. I’m excited to share it with all of you. My daughter and I had fun creating upcycled succulent flower pots to display in the kitchen #MiracleGroProject.


It didn’t take long for me to get inspired. I found so many fun garden projects from Miracle-Gro. I was inspired to take some old tiny tin buckets I had bought from Target for $1 each and upcycle them into cute little succulent flower pots to display in my new kitchen window.

I picked up a few succulents and a cactus while shopping the other day. I decided on succulents and a cactus because they are really hard to kill,  they also look great displayed nicely in a kitchen near or in a window sill. We recently moved into a new house, I am thrilled that I have 3 huge windows, and one above the sink. I’ve really missed having a kitchen sink window, now that I have one, I wanted to decorate it with pretty greenery.

While I was out shopping, I grabbed a bag of Moisture Control Potting Mix. I don’t know much about gardening, but I do know that succulents and cactus will die if they have too much water in the soil. Also, drainage are essential to successfully growing succulents and cactuses.


This project is so easy, just make sure you drill or poke drain holes in the bottom of your pots or in this case, tiny tin buckets. Put a little potting mix in the bottom of your container (bucket). Break up roots of succulent/cactus before placing on top of your fresh soil mix. Top off and fill to the brim of your container with potting soil mix. That’s it! Water slightly and place in your kitchen. Enjoy your succulents and cactuses for years to come.

  1. That looks really easy! I’m usually intimidated by plants but I think I could do this. I actually have a few containers like that already.

  2. How cute is that little cactus flower! I love this idea. I should probably get some cactus, it seems harder to kill….
