I realize that DIY planters don’t sound sexy or exciting or even terribly interesting. When you think of a planter, you probably think of a nice, cliche Mother’s Day gift, or maybe something you buy your grandma for her birthday because you don’t know what else to get her. I feel that. But guys, if you haven’t already become familiar with succulent planters, you need to, because they are one of the cutest things in the entire world, and you are going to be obsessed with them.
Are plants cute? Typically no, but these guys are. I don’t know if it’s their tiny plant form with their little leaves, or if it’s the adorable planters they sit in, but for some reason, succulents make me smile with joy every time I see them. Another plus: air plants are ridiculously easy to take care of, which is great news for someone like me, who cannot manage to keep flowers alive because she forgets they need, you know, water. Succulents make quirky but fun decorations for your bedroom, your office space, your bathroom, your dorm room, maybe even your beauty vanity. Putting them together could not be easier, so please, I beg of you, do not drop $50 on a cute AF planter from Urban Outfitters or Anthropologie, because it is not necessary.
Skeptical? Great! I have 18 images to prove you wrong. Here are the cutest and easiest DIY succulent planters you need to make now:
1. Like so many other things, mason jars are perfect for this DIY. Decorate them, then make them your little succulent garden.
2. You can also repurpose old items to make them into planters.
Little teacups are very feminine and pretty, but you can find anything out there to use! Hit up a garage sale or thrift shop and buy old pieces to repurpose.
