Faux Succulent Planter

3 Materials
10 Minutes

While real succulents could be used in this planter, I was looking for something I could leave outside, poolside. This little DIY works beautifully!

I started off with the Ketchup/Mustard set I got from Target for $3.00.

After removing the plastic containers, I took 2 votive holders & filled them with gravel from the backyard.

Sidenote: I started out thinking I could use those itty bitty red clay flower pots, but while they fit in the holes, they collided with each other since the rims angled out.

Then I took some succulents I'd found at Michael's (for 50% off now less!)

I trimmed down 1 of the succulents because the stem was long, but the other I was just able to wiggle right into the rock.

Super easy, and it can sit out in the Arizona sun and heat without watering!

Suggested materials:
  • Ketchup/Mustard holder   (Target)
  • 2 glass votives   (had on hand)
  • 2 faux succulents   (Michaels)

    This would make a nice bridal shower/housewarming gift, as the cute presentation requires no further wrapping.

    The date of the event could be added to the front piece below the jars.

      You are so right about it being a gift and how easy it would be to further personalize it for that special event. Thanks for sharing!
