Colourful succulents tucked into a pretty piece of driftwood make for a long-lasting centrepiece that brings the beauty of nature indoors. To make this piece, I planted exotic succulents and Tillandsias in a piece of driftwood I found on the beach. See how I did it and how you can create your own mini-driftwood garden below. Photos by Beki Dawn Photography by Singing Gardens Singing Gardens Save Email by Singing Gardens Singing Gardens Save Email Materials: Driftwood pieces (natural, well-dried driftwood is lighter than average timber, and you won’t need to worry about pest problems). Look for pieces that will sit well on a flat surface. Succulents (Sedum, Echeveria, Crassula). I used 5cm pots (the smallest succulent container size available at a retail nursery); if you are using succulent cuttings, make sure the stems are at least 5cm long. Tillandsias (optional) Succulent and palm potting mix or natural compressed coconut husk (just add water to expand the block) Sphagnum moss by Singing Gardens Singing Gardens Save Email Tools and safety gear: Electric drill Drill bits of varying diameters, preferably 5cm (to match the succulent container size) Wooden or plastic chopstick Mask Gloves Bucket Wear gloves throughout the process, especially when handling Sphagnum moss, and wear a mask if you are allergic to mold and dust. Before you start, soak dried moss in a bucket of water for five to 10 minutes. Ring out the excess water.

Arrange a few different types of succulents, still in their pots, on the driftwood before you drill, taking into account the driftwood size and shape. Try to use existing cavities to create as natural a look as possible.

Temporary fixes can help you visualize a bigger change. Removing a medicine cabinet and installing a cool mirror will help bring your bathroom up to date right away — and it can help stretch your imagination so you can better plan further changes. Having one piece in play (like the mirror) will give you more to go on as you choose paint colors, new fixtures and so on. Use this strategy elsewhere in the home by painting dated kitchen cabinets, applying peel-and-stick floor tiles or swapping out light fixtures.
