Living Succulent Frames
These living succulent frames definitely look like a great work of art and we are sure that you will agree with this. The possibilities are quite versatile and you can create any pattern you like. Opt for succulents that grow small, such as Echeverias and Sedums, because they won’t over grow the small space. And if you add a single bigger succulent, opt for an Aeonium. This succulent will for sure outgrow the picture, but you can always pull it out and add something else later on. Also, besides succulents, your work of art can include some tea pot and cup, like the one below.
You can be as creative as you want and can add anything you like in your succulent frame. The one below, features succulents, moss and some driftwood.
