farm notes{cute & thrifty repurposed teachers appreciation gifts}

(pix taken before i added rocks from my yard on top of the soil. accidentally deleted the after pic)

this year for our charter school teachers thank you gifts
we made cute low maintenance repurposed mini succulent garden mugs.
this is one of our new fave gifts to give!
the succulents are from our gardens propagated succulents (instructions here
that we have gathered either from
succulent plants growing in our community
or cuttings shared by friends (it's a hobby).
the brownsugars & i went to our fave local thrift store
(it is run by mentally challenged members of our community.
cannot say enough about how fab this store & this program is!)
the girls picked the mugs they liked for each teacher.
we brought them home & potted & tagged them.
the entire project took about 10 minutes total to assemble. 
easy peasy.
local, personal, natural & repurposed materials
& costs less than $5 (including a 4th mug not shown!).
*happy girl*
