Clever Ways to Show Off Your Plants Without Trying Too Hard
Lifestyle| | By Chelsea Cansino
You love your houseplants. The time and effort you put into them is often not apparent. So, you always want to show them off, but just having a plant sit around in a pot isn’t always the best look for your decor.
Take a look at these super-simple display options. Most of them you can create with objects you have laying around the house.
Neon Dipped Pots:
This DIY plant display is very simple and easy with clay pots, foam brushes, acrylic paint colors, and plants. Whether you want to tape off a portion of the pot or have the entire pot the same color, paint as you wish. Once the paint has dried, pot your plants or flowers to complete these neon dipped pots!
Light Bulb Vase:
This DIY project helps you be sustainable and reuse your light bulbs! Use the pliers to remove the bottom of the bulb, add water and place the flowers in your vase.
Cement Block Planters:
These block planters are perfect if you’re looking for something easy! Purchase Basalite blocks and succulents, then put the succulents into the open spaces of the blocks!
Color Hanging Garden:
If you’re looking for a DIY challenge, this color hanging garden project is definitely for you! You’ll need polymer clay, colored string, a cutting blade, growing plants, a rolling pin, and baking paper, but once these are complete, you’ll be sure to adore them (as will the neighbors. Shhh.).
Living Monogram Wreath:
Making a monogram wreath is pretty simple, all you need is a monogram letter and the flowers or moss for decoration. Depending on the type of monogram letter you have, you can either glue or insert the flowers onto the letter. Want the full tutorial? Check it out here.
House-Shaped Clay Pots:
For a more advanced DIY project, this handmade clay pot is something that you should try. You’ll need oven baked clay, smoothing tool, rolling pin, baking paper, ruler, and templates to complete this project. Cut your clay in the shape of the templates, attach the clay cutouts together and use the smoothing tool to merge the sides. Final step is to fill the pot with water and plant your flowers.

This DIY project may look intense and scary, but it’s easy! Here’s what you need to complete this tire planter: old tire, spray paint, potting soil, and flowers. Spray paint the tire, place the potting soil in the tire and then add the flowers. Create 6 holes in the bottom of the tire with a drill, wrap the chain around the tree and hook it to a s-hook to complete your tire swing planter!
Succulent Teacup Planter:
Probably one of my favorite DIY projects to do. This succulent teacup planter can add a freshness to your home decor or can make for a great gift. This easy DIY can be completed with a teacup, glue, soil, and succulents. Put glue on the bottom of the teacup and stick to the saucer, fill the teacup with soil, and then add your succulents to complete your fresh teacup planter!
Hanging Copper Planter:
It may look ambitious, but you can definitely complete this hanging copper planter with just these materials: leather scrap straps, leather tool, succulent pots, and tin buckets. Spray paint the tin vases, place the succulent plants in them and begin measuring out your leather strips. Loop your leather strips through the handle, snap the rivets on both sides, and then it’s ready to hang!

Hollow out your cork, glue a magnet on the back of the cork, fill the hole with potting soil and your succulent plants. What’s next? Nothing, your wine cork succulent planters are complete!
