I’m in love with the look of artificial succulents when added to home decor, but they can be a little pricey!! So…when I had the chance recently to snag a few at The Dollar Tree I snatched them up so I could make this cute and inexpensive Dollar Tree succulent farmhouse planter!! Here we go!
HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- ARTIFICIAL SUCCULENTS FROM DOLLAR TREE
- SMALL CAKE PAN, BOWL, OR PLATE
- FLORAL FOAM (MINE CAME FROM DOLLAR TREE)
- WHITE STONES (DOLLAR TREE)
- SPANISH MOSS
- HOT GLUE GUN/GLUE STICKS
- WIRE CUTTERS
- SPRAY PAINT
The first step is to paint (I used Rust-Oleum blossom white) my candle stick and cake pan white. I found both at garage sales for next to nothing!! Score!
Once you have the candlestick and the cake pan painted and dry, you are ready to use your hot glue gun to attach the pan to the candlestick.
Now add your floral foam to your pan and you’re ready for your succulents, stones, and moss to finish your succulent farmhouse planter! Use your wire cutters to trip the succulent stems and then insert them into the foam.
Once you have the succulents where you’d like, you can use the white stones to fill the gap between the foam and the side of your pan or bowl. This will keep your foam in place so that it doesn’t slide around. You can add moss by simply placing a drop of hot glue to the area where you’d like it. It is a nice finishing touch and adds some softness to the project.
All finished and ready to make its debut in home decor!! The total cost for this beauty comes in at just under $5.00, not too bad!!
