My obsession with copper started when I was wandering through the hardware store and spotted these caps in the plumbing section, CLEARLY they were meant for succulents, right?? I scooped up a bunch and have been potting plants, then giving them as party favors or housewarming gifts. They are putting grins on people’s faces for sure. I posted one on my Instragram a few weeks back and got a lot of inquires on where to buy them… great news, Darby Smart is now carrying them right here! And even better, they will also ship succulents right to your door, easy peasy crafting!  My copper crush reached another level after picking up CopperChrome spray-paint, this stuff covers amazingly. First item to get a coat was the cord on the vintage telephone I found thrifting (check out more of my second-hand scores on @ispydiy Snapchat). I could not be more impressed at how quickly it dried and the smooth coverage. Steps and supplies after the break…
