You guys I am no good at keeping plants alive! I will take any and all suggestions for types of plants that are hard to kill…ready go! That’s why I have succulents everywhere. Succulents are a tough plant that only needs watering about once a week (depending on the type you get). I just love my teacup succulent planter because it’s dainty and I can put it just about anywhere. This succulent planter also makes a great gift idea.
DIY Teacup Succulent Planter
What you need:
- a small teacup
- a small succulent
- small river rocks
This DIY is so easy and cute! It also makes a great gift idea for just about any occasion!
- You might already have a teacup you wouldn’t mind using for this DIY project or you can pick up one at a local thrift store. I bought this one for $1 and I just love the print on it.
- Fill it with dirt. Since this is such a small planter and because succulents are so awesome you can get dirt just about anywhere. Your yard or a garden is a perfect place to get dirt, no need to go out and by potting soil. I filled my teacup about an inch below the brim.
- Depending on size, decide on placement of your succulent. I chose to put mine off center but you can also center it.
- You can add other plants too. I used a couple trimmings of a ground cover in my garden to fill in other areas.
- Finish the project by covering the dirt with a layer of river rocks. You can get them at some dollar stores. Mine was left over from a fish tank package.
Paired with the right decor this teacup succulent planter can be in just about every room in the house. It’s tiny but can add a lot of charm to a space.
