Create Your Own DIY Succulent Planter in Under an Hour!

A DIY Succulent Planter You Can Make in Under an Hour

Posted on: Wednesday, April 16, 2014

This week, I decided to tackle our outdoor space with a DIY succulent planter.  When I say outdoor,  I mean our tiny, 8 x 5 “patio” outside our condo on the 13th floor that I’ve previously tried to stuff with various “patio” items that haven’t quite made me feel very patio inspired.  It works but it just hasn’t been “me”.  So.  I’m changing it.  Starting small and making a few subtle changes, which will hopefully turn into more of me.

If you’re an urban dweller like I am, creating a dreamy patio becomes somewhat of a challenge.  You have to be very creative.  (I love this little space on Apartment Therapy).  In the last week or two, there have been a few changes to my patio of which I might find myself outside just a bit more, enjoying all spring in San Diego has to offer.  More me? Indeed.

THE DIY SUCCULENT PLANTER

To start off with a small change, I’m re-painting and doing a little diy succulent planter for the patio, with an old planter that had been sitting empty for the last three months.  No plants, no nothing.  With a fresh coat of flat white Krylon spray paint, we will have a renewed and now reused planter on the patio!

You’ll need:

  • a bottle of Krylon Colormaster flat white spray paint
  • an old planter
  • trash bag to prep the area
  • painters tape to secure the trash bag

  • Then, make sure you’re in an open air space, get your spray on!  One nice coat, back and forth, shall do.  But for good measure, you can add a second coat.  The bonus with this spray paint is that it dries to the touch in 10 minutes!  That’s my kinda of DIY job!

  • And…voila!  Set your DIY succulent planter up for success by adding some lovely succulents or a ficus tree (those super popular, in all the magazines and blogs plants…they’re great!).  I opted for the succulent plants as I’ve been known to accidentally kill a plant or two in my day and succulents are on the relatively easy side to care for.  (Although, I’ve been known to bury a few of these too…)
