DIY Succulent Planter

Posted on Posted in Make

How cute is this little succulent planter I made yesterday! I wanted to give this wooden box (that used to be filled with tea) a new purpose and I thought succulents were just the thing. Turns out, it was even cuter than I imagined!

I researched the best potting soil for succulents and decided to try this Cactus Palm and Citrus Potting Soil from Home Depot. They actually had a pretty good selection of succulents and cactus plants there as well!

In the past I have murdered a few plants, but I think I finally got the hang of it. For whatever reason I would forget to water the ones that needed it and drown the ones that didn’t. It took me a while to realize that they really don’t need much; just a few sprays every 7-10 days!


I topped each pot off with some sparkly white rocks to make them nice and neat!

I am obsessed with these adorable plants and how the arrangement turned out! Now let’s just hope the dogs don’t destroy them and I can keep them alive!!

  1. So pretty and you really have done a good job of keeping them alive. Just a little tidbit I read the other day —-
    after you spray them, if there is any water accumulated on the leaves, just tilt them a little and let the water run off. They don’t like their leaves wet.
