Everyone knows my love of succulents. There’s such a variety, they take very little care and they live forever. I did a similar project to this before where I mixed them with roses and used floral foam. I wanted to revisit the project and find a way you could permanently plant in the heart box – and I found the secret!
Remove chocolates from box, you won’t need them. (I’ll leave it up to you as the best way to get rid of them.)
Paint the box with the waterproofing. This is the key for turning the paper box into a plantable item! Don’t skimp on it. Make sure you fully coat it and get the sides and bottom, inside and out. Let dry for the recommended about if time (usually overnight).
Plant them closely and think about the colors and textures.
When done, tie with a ribbon and give to them to the one you love. To care for them, place them in a bright place or on an outside table. Water them infrequently by spraying with a mister until the soil is damp.

Like a box of succulants”
