Dollar Store Succulent Globes With Essential Oils

5 Materials
20 Minutes

This simple and cheap project will make your home smell and look wonderful!

Supplies Needed:

3 - 5 Dollar Store succulents, varying sizes and colors

1 bag Dollar Store vase filler rocks

2 Dollar Store Hanging Floral Globes

Essential Oils

Glass bowl


Fishing Wire or String (for hanging)



1. Rinse the rocks under warm water for 5 minutes. Lay out to dry. 

2. Once rocks are dry, place them in a glass or ceramic bowl, leaving room for stirring. 

3. Sprinkle approximately 10 drops of essential oil of your choice ( my favorite - affiliate link) over the rocks and stir well, using silicone spatula. Allow rocks to dry for half an hour.

4. Once rocks are dry, fill the floral globes about 1/3 of the way (approximately 1/2 cup). 

5. Add succulents to your liking. Make sure you completely bury the stems in the rocks for a more realistic look.

6. Tie string around the plastic hook at top of globe, leaving 2 feet for adjustments. Hang in your desired location.

I chose to hang mine in a window so the morning sun would heat the oil and make the kitchen smell lovely.
