10 Super Cute Ways to DIY Succulent Planters

Spring fever is in full effect over here at my house. I am gathering my seeds and garden tools, eagerly awaiting the moment I can get outside and start planting. Well, It's barely April... I have about a month and a half to go (I hope! I do live in Chicago-land.. anything can happen...)

In the meantime, I'm in full redecorate and DIY mode. I really need to trim and re-pot the succulents and cacti that are still alive. I spent hours and hours scouring the internets and found a ton of super cute DIY tutorials for succulent planters.

Here are my top 10 favorite DIY succulent planters:


1. Easy DIY Tea Cup Planters

2. Succulents in Mason Jars

3. How to Make a Faux Stone Planter

4. Birdcage Succulent Planter

5. Brass Succulent Planter DIY

6. DIY Plastic Animal Planter

7. DIY Succulent Pineapples Planter

8. Simple Berry Basket Succulent Planter

9. DIY Painted Planters with Succulents

10. DIY Hanging Succulent Planter

Don't you just love these? I think the hanging birdcage succulent planter would be perfect for my patio garden, and I'm in love with the toy plastic animal planters. They are so fun! I have a few jade plant cuttings at work and the brass succulent planter would be pretty on my desk. Or maybe I can spray paint it rose gold? Also, the hanging succulent planter is brilliant and I wouldn't have to ask my mom to make a macrame hanger for me. So many ideas!

My distressed painted flower pot DIY

Remember a few weeks ago when I was in the process of painting my flower pots and I posted the list of my top 10 DIY painted flower pot ideas? Well, I did finish them and I LOVE how they turned out!

Here's a quick little DIY on how to paint flowerpots so they look distressed:


These distressed pots were super simple to make and I LOVE the results!

1. Start with clean, dry pots

2. Spray lightly with Krylon Make it Stone spray paint and wait for it to dry.


3. Paint with your choice of acrylic paints. I used a combination of Martha Stewart's Wedding Cake, Blue Sky, and Cloud and I just dabbed all three colors on the pot with no real rhyme or reason.


4. Once the acrylic paint is dry, take a course grit sandpaper and rub some of the paint off!


Voila! Easy-peasy distressed flower pots!
