Planting succulents into odd and weird planters is all over the web; however, this one is a bit different.


The dog dragged home a deer skull, and after trading her for a more appropriate bone, I threw this one up onto the shed roof to get bleached and cleaned by the sun and weather.

Three years later, I pulled it down and discovered to my delight that it’s even got some lichen started on it.

The supplies I used for this project are simple; a piece of tie wire and a bit of scrap nylon insect screen, a few teaspoons of soil, and some tiny rosettes of Sempervivum.

Soil is spooned into the cavities and small rosettes of Sempervivum plugged in to the eye sockets and nose areas.

Laying it down for a bit will let the hens root in, then it can be hung up on a fence or to decorate a barnboard potting bench.


Later; the plants are rooted in, and growing happily in their odd home.
