There is still time to spruce up your outdoor space with fun handmade pieces like colorful DIY succulent pots. I’m lucky to have a landscape designer husband, but he’s not into decorating that space. I wanted to add pops of white and aqua to our patio, so I decided to make these fun little pots to put around our space.
- 2 clay pots
- Various succulents
- Spray paint in the color you would like
- Hot glue gun
- Various ribbons and gems
- Box or drop cloth
First, you want to spray paint the pots and let them dry in between a few coats.
Next, choose your ribbons and create bows by bunching layers together in the center and tying it together. I finished my bows off with a giant gemstone.
After your pots have dried, it’s time to decorate them. I started with ribbon and simply hot glued it around the top portion of the pot.
Next, I took my bow and added it to the center. My bow matches my other handmade summer decor, so I love that it flows outside too.
Plant your pot or do as I did just simple keep your plant in the pot it came in and sit it inside. That way you can change the plants later is you would like to.
Succulents have swept the nation all of a sudden. They are such fun and unique plants and I feel like they needed a unique pot. I hope you try this soon since summer’s almost to its end. Have fun creating before it’s over!
