Turn your summer succulents into winter wonders with this Winter Frost DIY Succulent Planters tutorial.  Who would have thought that frost-covered plants would look so beautiful?  These lovely winter-kissed planters could be displayed inside or out, and would make for a fun table top centerpiece idea for an upcoming winter wedding.  For those of you living in the warmer states and countries, this project could help bring winter into your home (without that dreaded snowfall!).  These cute succulent planters could also be used as favors or gifts come the holiday season.

  1. Spray the tops of the succulents and air plants with white primer and let dry.  Lightly spray the ColorTex Flurry overtop of the white primer.  While the ColorTex is still wet, sprinkle with glitter.  The paint will secure the glitter in place as it dries.  Set aside to dry.

If you painted some yellow or gold, they'd look like pineapples, and then you could use them in summer!

This is so magical! I would totally hang succulents on my tree. These would be cute any time of year with different colored pine cones.

This is such a creative way to display plants in the winter! Everyone always has plenty of Christmas decorations, but this is a nice winter-long project.
