Christmas Garden Craft Trial Run: Succulent Ornaments

So, I have spent my day jamming unwilling plants into glass ornaments. What did you do?
that's my reflection in the ornament....I'm wearing my pajamas
Yeah, I bet that if I had the foresight to make them in October and let them grow in they’d look like a million bucks, but as it is… I bet I could only get something on the value menu for them.
I put at least 4 pieces of succulents in each one, hoping that at least one would take. So I’m figuring that before May I’m going to have to break the glass and liberate any of these little guys that survive. We shall see!
Is a tutorial necessary? I can do that. I took photos for each painful step- except  for the clean-up, I have spared you photos of me with the Shop-Vac… Geez, I had to MOVE to escape the glitter residue from Star Wars Garden Craft Week

Let me know if you want more info in the forum or the always rockin’ Kiss My Aster Facebook page… I’m willing to bore you with the details!
