A Green Home: Part I


I have openly admitted to my serious obsession over many things – sweets, throw pillows, fall, and most of all, candles. I’m a sucker for buying the candles with the pretty jar, and then at the end of the week (because that’s how quickly I burn through them), I’m left with nothing but a pretty, empty glass container.

After committing to filling my new house with greenery that I hopefully can’t kill (you can see the post about my plans here), I decided it was time to put those empty candle jars to good use. I picked out some cacti and succulents at my local greenhouse to start my cacti garden – part one of my green home. The process is easy, and doesn’t necessarily require a tutorial, but I love the idea of recycling something I once loved, and letting it continue to be a part of my home. Here’s my final results!

P.S. You can find tips about cleaning out your old candle jars here, and tips on cacti care here.
