DIY Succulent Ideas

Our resident plant expert, Kate, has gotten me hooked on succulents.  She is so good at picking the perfect succulents to plant in our vintage planters and pots that we have in the store.  Succulents are super low maintenance and easy to care for- this article from blog "Succulents and Sunshine" will give you the low-down on caring for your succulents.  I have a few succulents in pots and planters around my home, but when I started researching more unique ways to incorporate succulents into my decor, I found some of the cutest DIY ideas that I thought I would share!  Take a look below and hopefully you will be inspired to try a few of these ideas yourself!

This is such a great, inexpensive idea for an outdoor dining table- and the best part is it will always be perfectly decorated with a plant centerpiece!  You could also paint or stain the pallets to create your own unique look!

I really love the idea of a hanging frame overflowing with beautiful succulents!  This could work on your porch or even inside of your home!  You could use one large vintage frame or even a cluster of smaller frames.  Visit the link I have provided below the picture to find instructions on creating these succulent-filled frames!

I am dying to attempt to make one of these succulent wreaths for my front door! Pretty Prudent blog provides a great step by step tutorial on how to create these stunning wreaths!

A great way to dress up plain terracotta pots- with some vintage lace and modge podge! The girly, frilly look of the lace contrasts perfectly with the simplicity of the succulents.

Having a summer dinner party? Impress your guests with these adorable succulent place settings! There are so many possibilities for these including different pots, papers, ribbons, and trimmings to make them extra special and unique to perfectly match your table decor.

I usually think party favors are cheesy, mostly because they are usually random and cheap items that no one keeps or ends up using, but these succulent favors are such a cute and perfect idea for any party!  Just like the place cards, you can customize these in a million different ways for your own event.
