Let’s Make It

Paint the terracotta pots white.

This will require 2-3 coats of white paint. Allow the paint to dry completely.

Fill the terracotta pot with soil and then plant your succulents inside.

Succulent Care Tip: To water your plant, soak the soil each time it’s become completely dry. Allow excess water to drain out of the bottom. Do not allow the plant to soak in a pool of water all day or night. Once the soil dries out, you may soak the plant again.
