DIY Dollar Tree Succulent Tower

35,761 Views
During a recent trip to Dollar Tree, I had a revelation while walking the aisles. You know those oil warmers? I think that’s what they’re called. Those white little domes with a dome inside and a place to pour oil on top. What if I stacked them on top of one another and placed little (faux) succulents inside?

Here are the oil warmers themselves. Cute but nothing spectacular on their own!

Using hot glue (or E6000 adhesive), stack one on top of another. Make sure you alternate which side is facing the other oil warmers. We want the transition from one warmer to the next to look seamless. Check my picture below for clarification.

Add some Spanish moss to the inside of each dome. Just a tiny amount of moss is necessary to achieve this cool look.

Finally, add one succulent into each dome. Don't these look gorgeous now? I absolutely love the way this came out and I definitely think this looks much more expensive than it actually is. Do you also love succulents? Be sure to visit my blog for more succulent projects and other spring related decor ideas. If you're not a huge fan of succulents, you could also place some flowers inside the little domes. This is a versatile project for sure.

    I love that! That would look great in my kitchen next to the sink, seeing that the top has a little scoop to it, would be great to hold rings while you are cooking & cleaning & at the same time give some beauty to the kitchen! Thanks for the ideas ;)

    Great idea. Could work for air plants too. You could also put the succulents or air plant in some of the holders and get miniature fairies for fairy gardens and put them in one or two of the holders. Engineermommy your great idea can lead to a number of variations. Thanks for sharing.
