“Ay, drippin' I'm so clean, bro…I walk with a mean mug”

- “Mean Mug” Yung Bans (2018)

Ayyyeeee! I’m showing off my version of a “mean mug” on my desk. This is a super simple DIY. It’s great for kids as long as you use succulents that aren’t pointy, like the cactus I used (ouch!). Let’s get started.

Supplies:



First, put some rocks at the bottom of the mug for drainage. Then add some soil.

Next, carefully scoop your plant out of the flimsy planter. Use a plastic spoon on one side for leverage to pop out the plant.

Place your plant in the mug and add more soil. I added another plant (aloe) and some rocks to the top for decoration. Water it. And you’re finished! I would display this on my desk at work or maybe a side table at home.

Lessons Learned:

  • Do This Outside. I made a mess with the soil. It gets EVERYWHERE.

  • Protect Yourself. If you are using a cactus, be careful. I used a folded over dish towel to transfer the cactus from the planter to the mug.

Until next time, Peace!
