Chicken Feeder Succulent Trays

I LOVE the Tractor Supply store. It is the largest retail farm and ranch store chain in the United States. Since my grandparents were farmers, maybe it’s in my DNA to love this store. However, as I discovered, it not only serves the needs of farmers but crafters too!

Stick with me gang….take for example these inexpensive chicken feeder trays.

A unique autumn centerpiece!

 
You can buy the succulents, potting soil and pea gravel at most plant nurseries. Simply add about 1/2 inch of potting soil to the bottom of the tray, remove the succulents from their nursery containers and place them creatively in the tray. So they fit nicely, you may have to remove some of the soil around the base of the succulents. Then finish off the tray with a layer of pea gravel.  Place in a sunny location and water once a week.

Easy, right? Happy crafting!
