OK…I’m no GREEN THUMB here
but I wanted to share how easy it is to make a succulant planter.
Succulants are the perfect plants for a brown thumb like me…
it’s easy to maintain
just give them lots of sunlight and water once a week.
I was inspired to make this for a gift after watching

Gravel (I used fish tank gravel)
Cactus Mix Soil
Variety of Succulents
I got this wooden box set from Michael’s
On sale + Coupon = Score!
I decoupaged the front and back of the box with scrapbook paper
and painted the sides white.
Since it’s a wooden box and has no holes for water to drain
I covered the bottom with gravel,
succulent roots don’t like to sit in water.
Fill the box with Cactus Soil Mix about an 1″-2″ below the planter.
Since my box has handles, I had to fill it lower.
Plant your succulents and cover top soil
with river rocks.
