I found this vintage chip-n-dip bowl set at the thrift store a few months ago.
And I added some rocks for drainage (from the dollar store).
After I repotted the (surviving) succulents we bought a few weeks ago (yes, I manage to even kill succulents), the girls decorated the soil with these shiny blue glass rocks (also from the dollar store).
The only bummer about this is after I added the soil, I lost that pretty amber color of the glass. So since there was a lot of brown going on, I wanted to add some blue to the pot. I dyed some butcher’s twine by squirting some craft paint onto a plate and swirled it around (by mixing the colors, I had a little bit of ombre/tie-dye going on, but it was subtle). Then I rinsed it out under running water, squeezed out the excess water and paint, and let it dry. I then wrapped it around the large bowl.
I like that the twine breaks up all the brown, and goes well with the blue glass rocks.
Glad to be able to display one of my vintage finds while it serves a purpose!
