DIY Succulent Planter

Listen up, if you have friends in Kentucky be sure to send the ark. Seriously folks it’s been raining cats n dogs out here. It’s nearing the end of winter and this gal is more than ready for some sunshine and warmer temps. Can I get an amen?

Hence, the DIY involving plants and fresh tablescapes. I always tend to create and write straight from the heart and I am sharing this adorable little DIY planter idea in hopes it may bring Spring a little sooner rather than later. If not, well then, I have a cute planter. That is what I like to call a win-win, my friend.

What you’ll need:

  • Wood bowl
  • Rope
  • Spanish moss
  • Faux Succulent

For the life of me I can not remember where I found this bowl. Obviously it’s thrifted because it’s the only one I had. Nonetheless, I’ve had it stashed a way for a while, knowing I would use it someday.

I started by drilling two holes on one side of the bowl. This is where I planned to loop the rope. Here is the thing with me and drills. I kinda sorta know how to get them to do what I am needing them to do but most of the time I have no idea what “bit” I am even using. Sad. I know. But I’m not gonna pretend I know what this thing is called. All I know is will make a hole where you need it. Haha

Once the holes were drilled, simply thread your rope through and knot on either side.

Hot glue some spanish moss to the base…

And top it off with a cute little succulent(s)

Seriously, how incredibly easy was that? This little thing is a showstopper. I added it to my kitchen for a little touch of green but truly it could hang anywhere.
