Our big move is in just a few days (!), and while we’re definitely excited about the new apartment, there are a few things we’ll miss about our old place in Philly—one of them being the great view. Unfortunately, we only have a few windows in our new place (and they don’t exactly look out onto the most sweeping views of the city), so I’ve been searching for some ways to bring the outdoors in to make our apartment feel a little less, well, apartment-y.
Enter succulents. Not only are they bright and beautiful, but they’re pretty long-lasting and low-maintenance, which is exactly what this non-green thumb needs. And since just any old succulent planter won’t do, I’ve been looking around for inspiration to create my own. And no surprise here: I found plenty of it! From dip-dyed and glittered planters to painted and out-of-the-box ones, I’ve rounded up eight DIY succulent planters for any craft- and garden-loving decorator.
The best part about every one of these DIY planters is that the projects are surprisingly simple, as well as the perfect decor fix to perk up any room on a budget. I’m definitely leaning toward the gold-painted versions, as well the planters made from old candle holders, but I would love just about any one (or all) of these in our new place.
Which of these DIY planters would you make? And what simple DIY projects do you use to perk up your home?
