DIY Mini Succulent Garden

On top of buying my mom and step mom succulent plants, my boyfriend and I decided to get some of our own too! With the plants being about $5 each, the succulents make a great, inexpensive decoration at our little apartment.

I needed a better way to keep track of my earrings, so I decided to save my money (more money for the earring fund) and make my own jewelry box for my earrings.

School was closed and my classes were canceled due to icy weather conditions today, so it was the perfect time to be creative! In preparation for the bad weather, I knew I had to buy the supplies for this week’s DIY project a little bit earlier than expected.
