Do you have a succulent planter in every room of your home? Ha! Neither do I, but I love them, and I’m actually going to be using succulents a lot in my holiday decorating. I haven’t decided if I’m going to use real succulents or faux succulents, but honestly . . . I love them both.

I’ve been brainstorming some ideas for succulent planters that involve sand – and a few others with paint – but I’m still not exactly sure what I’m doing.

So recently I looked up some succulent planter inspiration to get my creative juices flowing. I wanted to share my finds with you in the hopes that you’d be inspired, too.

As soon as I come up with my own project idea, I’ll definitely be sharing it on the blog. Until then, enjoy my picks below!

Thank you for all your ideas. I just purchased six succulents and I am waiting for a planter purchased on Amazon which is a pot that is broken in the front with little steps and has a minature house at the top. I have never had success with succulents and I am a Master Gardener but I am in for a challenge. I look forward to trying some of your ideas as I have other plants that look rather boring. I love your site.
