20 Creative Succulent Ideas

Share this post

I have been a fan of succulents for a while, I have seen so many beautiful collections of these pretty little plants, it was time to make a terrarium of my own.  I was in Home Depot this week and walked past the succulent display that I have passed so many times, I finally bought a couple of plants.  I brought them home knowing I could plant them in just about anything.  Here is the Simple Succulent Terrarium I put together.

Simple succulent terrarium plus loads of succulent planter inspiration

I drew from the abundance of inspiration put together by some of my favorite bloggers (scroll down to see it all).  I looked around for a planter and decided on this vase.  I’ve had it, with stones in it, in my bedroom for close to 2 years.  It wasn’t doing much up there and needed some new life.

How to create a succulent terrarium

To plant the succulent I layered stone at the bottom of the vase for drainage, then soil in which I planted the succulent.  Then I layered more pebbles on top.

Simple succulent terrarium and inspiration for your next succulent planter

These require very little water which is great for me because I often forget to water my house plants.  I am loving how this looks in my living room

Now take a look at some of these amazing succulent displays, be sure to click through and pin from their pages so you can save all this inspiration. 

If you are enjoying all this succulent goodness I’d love for you to share this!
