Handmade Wooden Pots for SUCCULENTS

Today I’d like to show you how to make wooden pots for succulents that will perfectly complement any interior. These plants don’t need a lot of water and soil and so can grow in almost any vessel with a handful of soil. Some people find it tedious to care for succulents and they rather choose artificial flowers. And if you are such kind of person, today you’ll learn how to make a wooden flower pot from a tree for artificial succulents within just a few minutes.

You’ll need:

-          small piece of a thick branch or a tree trunk

-          sandpaper

-          stain and varnish

-          an artificial succulent

-          a glue gun (if needed)

First of all, you need to prepare a piece of a trunk or a large branch. You’d better make the offcuts at a small angle to the vertical axis. Remove bark from a tree and apply the stain on the wood or cover it with varnish if you want.

Then drill a small hole in the center of the upper offcut. Varying sizes of drill bits, drill a recess in the central part.

After that you should pick a drill with the same diameter as the thickness of the stem of your artificial succulent, and then drill a hole in the center of the recess. The depth of the hole should be about a centimeter.

Trim the stem to the desired length and insert it into the hole. You can use a gluing gun if you want the plant to keep securely.

Well, that’s all! This master class is so simple and it won’t take you much time to make such cute and stylish decorative things for your home interior! Good luck!
