Candle and Succulent Centerpiece

4 Materials
20 Minutes

Now that we’re into the mostly dreary months of the year here in Utah, I wanted to create a table centerpiece that has some greens and color but also has a cozy ambiance. After a bit of thinking I landed on a candle and succulent box. I hope you like it as much as I do!

This is a super quick and easy DIY. You’ll need to gather quite a few things before you begin, though.

you’ll need:

Remote control candles

Faux succulents

Small rocks

and a box or container of your choosing.

First I spaced out my candles in the box.

Once I had that figured out, I filled in the empty space in the box with lightly crumpled up paper towels. You could also use newspaper or anything that will help ‘raise the bottom’. The reason I included this step is so that I Didn’t have to use as many rocks and the planter wouldn’t end up being too heavy.

Next, play around with succulent placement.

Once you’ve finalized your succulent placement, begin to fill the box with your rocks. Be sure to make them level across the whole planter.

ta-da! All finished.

Honestly, this project was so simple and easy. I love how it turned out and the best part is that you can customize it completely to your own taste! I love it! Such a cozy addition to our kitchen.
