I know, I know. After an all-day slog to make a padded Silverware Drawer Insert, I vowed less than a week ago never to do another DIY project. But who can resist these tiny clay pots—and they look so easy to make—that I saw on Transient Expression? All you have to do is hollow out a spot for the tiny succulent to grow, cut faceted sides with a knife, and—you’re done.
For step-by-step instructions and a materials list, see Transient Expressions.

Above: You need to dig out enough clay to give the plant’s roots room to spread.
Above: Use a sharp knife to cut facets, bake it in the oven, and fill it with tiny plants. Or you can use the clay to make a hanging plant holder if you prefer; see Transient Expression for the details.
