Dollar Store DIY Succulent Planter
Let’s face it, not everyone can grow a beautiful succulent garden. Shoot, some of us are lucky to keep our kids and pets fed. This easy DIY succulent planter allows us to add a bit of pretty succulent pots to our home without having to even get dirty. Well, not very dirty.
Supplies to Make an Easy DIY Planter
First, gather your DIY succulent planter supplies. Pick a paint color that you like as well as a few faux succulents. I just happened to have some of this craft paint in my shop, so I figured I’d give it a try. But for my furniture painters – you can use your favorite furniture paint too if that’s what you have on hand. If you don’t have a Dollar Store near you or prefer to not make the trip, you can find some cute faux succulents for your DIY planter online here.
Directions for Making a Dollar Store Succulent Plant
- Begin by applying your paint to the flower pot in a dry brushing fashion. To dry brush, you want to use a dry paintbrush and apply the paint to the flower pot in quick strokes. This gives it a weathered look! Allow the paint to dry thoroughly. If you need further instruction on the dry brushing technique I have a tutorial for dry brushing furniture you can check out. Basically, don’t take this step too seriously, just make it your own. 😉
- Place a rock on the inside of the pot to cover the drain hole. This is just to keep the gravel (or sand) from falling through the bottom. Then fill your succulent pot with gravel (or sand). Make sure to leave a little bit of space at the top to add your faux succulents.
- Next, take you succulents of choice and press them into the gravel. You don’t even have to glue them in place because the gravel will hold them.
- Cut a piece of twine or ribbon and wrap it around the top of the flower pot. You can use a small dab of glue to secure the twine/ribbon to the planter pot if you’d like. Allow to dry.
- Your easy peasy DIY succulent flower pot is now ready to be displayed.
