67 DIY Succulent Planter Ideas Everyone Can Try

If you want a practical indoor plant that does not require much care, try a succulent plant in a decorative planter. There are many planters available in stores, but DIY succulent planter ideas can make your house or office look more attractive.

How to Make a Succulent Planter

Making succulent planter is very easy. You only need a container with a small hole at the bottom, soil, and pebbles. The container can be an actual pot, milk carton, or ramen cup. All you must do is putting pebbles on the bottom before filling it with soil, and putting the plant in the soil (loosen the root ball first).

You can add another layer of pebbles on top. Afterward, water your plant until moisture drops from the hole.

Wooden Succulent Planter Box

Want a rustic look with your succulent plant? Try wooden box as the planter. The planting method is similar to the previous explanation. However, what if the wooden box does not have a hole underneath? And how can we prevent the root from rotting?

You can solve those problems by layering the box with a plastic bag before putting the soil. To prevent rotten root, buy activated carbon filter pellets (usually used in a fish tank), and put it under the soil.

Hanging Succulent Planter

Kokedama is a Japanese method of creating hanging planter. All you need is soil, clay mud, dry and fresh moss, and twine. Here is how to make it:

  • Wash off the soil of your plant. Put the soil in the container, add clay mud and water, and mix until you get the consistency of play dough.
  • Spray water to the dry moss, and wrap it around the plant’s root. Cover them with clay mixture to form a ball.
  • Wrap fresh moss around the clay mixture, and tie it with twine.

Dinosaur Succulent Planter

Dinosaur succulent planter is a great DIY project for parents and kids. You need a pliant dinosaur toy with at least 24 centimeters of length, drill, utility knife, and small rocks.

First, make a hole that fits your plant on top of the dinosaur. Make another hole with tiny size on the bottom for drainage. You can ask your kids to paint the dinosaur with acrylic paint. Afterward, just fill the dinosaur with rocks, soil, and plant.

Succulent Letter Planter

Succulent letter planter is a great way to create a personalized look. You can make letter planter using plywood planks for the more ambitious project. However, simple cardboard boxes and decorative tape can make good mini letter-shaped planters.

Cut the top of cardboard boxes and arrange them into a letter you pick. Cover the inside with decorative plastic tape. Make several small holes on the bottom, and put the soil and plant with the usual steps.

Succulent Wall Planter

Finally, you can decorate your wall with vertical, succulent wall planter. All you need is a simple wooden box as “frame,” with a plywood board base. Spread soil inside the box without reaching the top edge. Spread moss on top before attaching chicken wire to cover it. Plant small succulent plants through the hole, and hang the planter anywhere you like.
