DIY Rustic Gold Succulent Planters
Sharing some pretty DIY rustic gold succulent planters today! I needed some pops of color in a few spaces in my home. I love the look of succulents and wanted to add a pop of gold. You just need a few inexpensive items to make these pretty diy planters.
For our Michaels Makers challenge this month, I had fun shopping the floral market at Michaels. So many pretty flowers, succulents and planters ready to welcome SPRING!
Excited to share how to make these beauties today!
What You’ll Need to make DIY Rustic Gold Succulent Planters: (all Items found at Michaels Craft Stores)
-A handful of individual faux succulents (a good variety)
-Mini square rustic wood planters
-A roll of moss (who knew it could come on a roll!)
-Design Master Gold Medal spray paint
-Small pieces of styrofoam
Steps to Create DIY Rustic Gold Succulent Planters:
1) Using Painter’s tape, tape off areas that you want to leave the rustic wood color. The open spots will be gold. I created triangle shapes using a diagonal line. Try adding straight lines of tape to create a gold bottom and wood top. And randomly add tape pieces to create gold geometric shapes. Make sure the tape is pressed down securely before painting.
2) Spray paint over the sections you would like to be gold. I placed the planters in a cardboard box for the spray painting. Let dry completely. 3) Place a small piece of styrofoam at the bottom of your planter. You can glue this down with hot glue or just place it in your planter. Add in your ribbon moss on top. I doubled up the moss.
4) Place succulents in the planter pressing the stems in between the moss and into the styrofoam.
I love how the rustic wood is mixed with the fancy pop of gold!
The variety of succulents make the planters look so pretty!Now you can have fun adding these succulent planters to spaces in your home! They bring the perfect pop of spring and color to any space.
