Post and giveaway sponsored by The Home Depot, but all opinions are my own. 

It's been a whirlwind week or two working with The Home Depot for the DIH Workshop, Inspired by Pinterest. There have been tv segments… workshops… projects… succulents… dirt under my fingernails… and it's been an amazing ride! I am excited to share all the deets with you and also launch a giveaway as our way of saying we heart you and to wrap this amazing partnership! One of you lucky duckies will walk away with a $100 gift card to The Home Depot, yahoooooo… For the giveaway, scroll all the way to the bottom, and for a recap of all the excitement as well as a fun video tutorial for a DIY succulent garden, just hold on to your seats folks… it's gonna be fabulous! I'm also including the link to another DIY succulent garden I created specifically for The Home Depot and can be found on their blog, The Apron… it's awesome-sauce, if I do say so myself (which I do…).

Also if you would like to watch my segment on KCRA, click here and watch away (I haven't figured out how to embed it yet) and my segment on ABC click here. Don't judge… I'm still chubby from hatching the bird, I have this strange tendency toward crazy eyes… and I'm downright goofy most of the time, pretty sure that's why you guys guys tolerate me though, ya? I will try and post the other links to the other segments as they roll through.. weeeeee.

The DIH Workshop at the Stanford Ranch Home Depot was amazing, with an amazing turnout! Yahoo! Everyone was completely into the topic and the whole experience was amazing (Thank you Stanford Ranch Store, I heart you guys!!!)!

We tackled a vertical garden, classic potted garden and even hypertufa… ya be jealous… hypertufa rules! 


Now let's get down to business for our DIY project, shall we? 


  • 4×6 piece of lumber at 6' or less
  • Spade Bit or Hole Saw at 2″-2 1/2″ would be perfect, but smaller will work with multiple holes (see my video below!)
  • large and long drill bit for wood
  • succulents of your choice
  • sandpaper
  • acylic paint of your choice
  • paint brush (I used a 2″ brush for this, it went faster that way)
