Succulent Pot in Pot Planter
“Never be afraid to try something new, because life gets boring when you stay within the limits of what you already know.”
Recently, I saw a new trend on Instagram #succiepotinpot, a succulent pot in pot. I just love some succulents, as you may have seen here, so I thought I would make this easy craft. Plus, it’s a fun way to use a broken item like a teacup, mug, or pot.

- Large Pot, something with a large open top will help your display like this
- Smaller Pot, Mug (a floral one like this would be lovely too), or Similar Item
- Rock, Bark, or Similar Item
- Fill your large pot with dirt. If it doesn’t allow drainage, you will want to make sure there is a rock base (like we did here), so water doesn’t collect or make some drainage holes.
- Plant the succulents in the design you like.
- Add your smaller pot facing down.
- Add additional soil if needed and rock, or whatever you like, around the border.
Obviously, this is super easy and just about design. I thought this type of water can would be fun too. Just use your imagination to whatever suits you. Be sure to share in the comments how you would make your succulent pot in pot planter.
