DIY Succulent Flutes

We tested out the new Yard Master paints, giving these old champagne flutes a makeover.

Step 1 - The Hunt
Have a rummage around your local op shop, garage sale or maybe your own cupboard for a sweet collection of odd glasses.

Step 2 - Gather Supplies
You will need some sprays in colours to match your decor, fine sand paper, some small cacti, or cuttings from existing succulents, potting pebbles. We picked Yard Master Cinnamon, Honey and Pastel Aqua.

Step 3 - Paint
Lightly sand your glassware so the paint will adhere. Turn your glasses upside down and spray each a different colour. Allow to try for about 30 minutes, then turn the right way up and spray your final coat.

Step 4 - Pot
Leave for a few hours to thoroughly dry, then repot your cacti in their new homes. Add a layer of fine pebbles on top of the soil.
