Tt was a super cute Succulent Turtle!  It was so adorable that I felt like my garden really needed a turtle. So I figured out how to make one.


  • 12″ wire hanging basket with coco liner
  • 4 – 4″ clay pots
  • Sphagnum moss
  • A small roll of chicken wire
  • Succulents. I used Sempervivum (Hens and Chicks) for my turtle.
  • Washers, wire and an old plastic pot (or a sheet of coir or landscape fabric big enough to cover the top of your wire basket)
  • Snips to cut the wire.
