Bring the outdoors in this summer with this Super Easy Succulent Garden. Succulents can thrive indoors as long as they get enough sunlight. Garden craft ideas like this are very earth-friendly, because they uses recycled materials.
Grab a ceramic plate and some old tin cans from your recycling bin and get to work potting up your new succulents! You can paint the outside of the tin cans to add some interest to your DIY succulent planter or leave them plain for a more industrial look. Your kids can also enjoy potting these plants with you.

Estimated Cost$11-$20

What a cut idea. I like succulents. They are very easy to grow. And really don't need fertilizers or trimming. I want to make a couple of these but I will use decorative duct tape on the cans to fit the theme of any room I place them in. Thank you for the inspiration.

Succulents are the easiest things to plant and maintain. They require very minimal attention so even when you leave for a couple of days, they'll be fine. I painted my tins gold and black.

Really like your crafts something for everyone beginner or more advanced thanks

I have made similar plantings, but this is a nice idea to keep,things simple and contained. For a more colorful,look, you could paint the cans or even add ribbon or,glue buttons or small,tiles to,the outside for embellishment. This would be a lovely housewarming gift or even would nring a touch of home to the college dorm.

Wow! A very minimalist design idea. This is very, very nice for apartments dwellers. They may only have a single window or perhaps a fire escape to use for their greenery. In lieu of a drill for the drainage holes, you COULD heat up a screw driver over your gas range until it gets hot enough and then poke the holes through the cans. Or use a hammer on that screw driver for a real hands-on approach. -)

I'll be bookmarking this one. My succulent collection needs to be consolidated into some kind of arrangement, and this might be the winner.

I like the use of tin cans here. It looks rustic but cute.
