Although all plants are living things and would like to be repotted, succulents can last longer in their grower pots than tropical house plants. If you don’t feel like repotting your small stems, try making them a sweater for a more attractive on-the-shelf look. In addition, this quaint little project from Camilla over at Family Chic is perfect for covering pots you’re over, if you aren’t ready to shill out the cash for a new ones.
To create the look, Camilla simply picked up a wool sweater from the local thrift store, washed it on hot water and dried it (causing the sweater to felt and shrink up). After cutting off the sleeve, it’s easily slipped over the pot with edges tucked under for a trim presentation. Want to see how it’s done? Hop on over to Family Chic for all the (easy peasy) details.

Easter is on our doorstep and no matter how egg-cited (see what we did there?) you are to dye some eggs, the holiday can be pretty loaded down with candy and sugary sweets. Instead, we’re taking a more natural approach to this pastel colored holiday and taking a look at some things young and old alike. We have things for your sweetheart, great gifts for guys and don’t forget — yourself!
For the men we have our Hops in a Grow Can and Baby Heads that fall into the creepy yet cool category. Have you seen our animal wine stoppers? They’re handmade and a store favorite. There’s a horse, monkey, tiger and snake. That’s right, you can cork your wine with a Tiger. Rawr!
There’s handmade soaps, incense and candles of all sorts for the ladies and we love them given in one of our metal hanging baskets. It’s a great way to keep the Easter basket feel without more wicker weighing down your living room.
Don’t forget about potted plants ready for your windowsill. Don’t worry about having to get dirty yourself, we’ll take care of the messy part for you. You’re welcome to choose from something we have potted up already or pick a container and the perfect plant for your your pad.
For the kid or kid at heart we also have comic books that are able to go straight in the garden. Each page is packed with seeds and can be planted into beautiful flowers and plants. Talk about the more you know the more you GROW. Did you laugh? I did! You should too.
As you can see we’re excited for this hoppin’ holiday and have lots of ways to fill your Easter basket or find a gift for that special someone. Sprout Home Chicago will be open on Easter Sunday from 9-7! Hop on by!
