I’ve been trying to find the perfect Father’s Day gift for my hubby.  I was thinking of something to go on his desk at work.  Something that would remind him of his girls.

This is what I came up with:

A few years ago my father gave me some Hen & Chicks (succulents) which came from my grand-mother’s plant (I believe it came from her mother’s plant).  

My sister mentioned that she put a few in a pot. Since mine is growing like crazy, I thought I could easily take some and put a few in little pots for Sébastien.

Mini Chalk Pots

I picked up little terracotta pots and a rectangular white plate from the dollar store. (I didn’t want it to be too big for his desk.) I thought the mini pots would look cute on the little plate.

I also wanted the pots to be personalized.  With the help of Gabrielle we painted the terracotta pots with chalk paint.

DIY Mini Chalk Pots:

Step 1: We took out the chalk paint.

Step 2: We applied two coats of chalk paint.

Step 3: We also put a little bit of chalk paint on the inside rim.

Step 4: We dug up some Hen & Chicks (succulents).  

Step 5: We filled the pots with potting soil.

Step 6:  We planted the Hen & Chicks (succulents).
