DIY Mini Succulent Planter

Mini Succulent Planter at DoingSplendid.comI put together this cute mini succulent planter for a friend who is moving to a new home soon. I thought it would be a nice, little housewarming gift. It was so fun, fast, and easy to make too! I had almost all the supplies already, so it didn’t cost very much to make either!

They’re cute right?! I’m sure you want to make one too! Here’s how…

Mini Succulent Planter at DoingSplendid.comBefore I started anything, as you can see from the picture, I made sure my craft sytrofoam was going to fit in my jar. I had to cut it down a little to fit. After that I started to paint. After the first coat, let it dry completely.
