Here’s How You Can Give An Old, Unused Coffee Pot New Life…Literally

Do you have an old coffee pot laying around and a need for some green in your living space? Enid over at A Charming Project has a cute, upcycled DIY option for everyone, even those who may not have the greenest of thumbs.

Inspired by her grandmother”s love of coffee and plants, Enid shows us how to make an adorable open-air terrarium with white sand and hearty succulents. Succulents can thrive for lengthy periods of time, even in less-than-ideal conditions, making them perfect for both experienced gardeners and those without any experience at all. Check out the cute how-to below.
