Hey everyone! It’s Kara from A Kailo Chic Life! I don’t know about you, but I can’t seem to get enough of succulents and there are so many cute ways to display these easy to care for plants. I am so excited to show you how to make a few of your own planters today with these adorable DIY Fruit and Veggie Succulent Planters. The perfect project just in time for spring!
How adorable would these planters be all lined up in your kitchen window? The best part is that they are super quick to make and don’t cost much to make either. Let’s get started shall we?
- Glass Dishes (I purchased these at Ikea)
- Acrylic multi surface paint
- Paint Brushes
- half dirt, half sand potting mix
Now that you have your supplies you will begin by cleaning your glasses with alcohol and letting them dry. Then paint on your first coat of paint. Red for strawberries, orange for carrots, yellow for a pineapple, and peach and light pink for a peach. Feel free to try your hand at other fruits and veggies too!
Once your first coat has dried, go ahead and paint your second coat of paint on and let dry. Now its time for the final touches to make each planter resemble the fruit or veggie. Use white paint to make a diagonal crosshatch for the pineapple, light yellow dots for the strawberry seeds, and thin black lines for the carrot.
Let dry then simply fill with your potting soil mix and succulents of choice. I tried to pick succulents that would mimic the tops of the real fruits for a more realistic look. I also love the variation of the different succulents for each fruit/veggie.
Thanks so much for letting me show you how to make these DIY fruit and veggie succulent planters. If you like this you should check out A Kailo Chic Life for even more succulent planter ideas!
