Panty Hose Succulent Wreaths
(Grand Forks, B.C. Canada)

Finding new and creative ways to use succulents is also a lesson in recycling and repurposing. What else can you use your old panty hose for? I made two of these wreaths, and basically made up my own method, before I found some tutorials online.
Here's what I did:
I had picked up two wire wreath frames from the thrift store for $1, and was just waiting for the perfect way to use them.
Digging out some panty hose from storage, I filled both of the legs with potting soil until it was fairly full, but not stuffed. I tied the top of the panty hose in a knot, and then arranged the two legs on the wire frame, one on each side.
Once they were in place, I wound tie wire around to hold them.
The grey one was the first, and I poked holes in it to stick the ends of the Sedum cuttings into it, but on the second one, the black one, I simply put the cuttings in the creases. Hopefully they'll be strong enough to root in to the soil.
I'll leave them for a week or so, until they seem firmly rooted, then I can hang them up.
