Succulents are ideal plants to grow in unconventional containers since they are both small and need little water. This collection contains some great ideas ranging from the fairly conventional terrarium to mason jars and even a surf board. These fifteen succulent planter ideas come from an article which I came across on the Garden Lovers Club Website.
Succulent plants are the perfect solution to a dry summer that has not had a lot of rain. These types of plants thrive in any weather, but planting them in plain everyday pots can dim their potential. In addition, some planters may fade in the sun, which will diminish the look that you are shooting for in your garden. Instead, try to aim a little higher and create planters for your succulents that are eye catching and a point of interest for anyone who walks through your yard.
Below is a list of 15 great planter ideas that you can easily make at home. I have included a lot of great ideas in this list, but there is one succulent planter that I absolutely adore. The ninth entry on our list is one that incorporates a wagon wheel into the design. I love this idea because you can create your own unique planter each time you use this design by changing the succulents that you plant. Maybe you want one planter to feature more green plants, or perhaps you prefer plants with a reddish tint. The option is yours, so let your creative side lead the way.
Another one of the ideas that jumps out at me is the last one on the list. I love a glass of wine, but nothing is more appealing to me than reusing a wine bottle that I would have simply thrown away. The wine bottle makes a beautiful succulent planter that will look great as a walkway accent or a standalone piece.
1. Abstract Geometrical Sphere Planter
The first planter on our list is one that features see-through sides. This is a great idea because it allows you the chance to layer stones and other accents into the soil. Each triangle in this geometrical shape has a copper border that adds a rustic feel to the planter.
2. Pinecone Hanging Planter

Who knew that planting succulents directly into a pinecone would create such a beautiful hanging planter? This idea is perfect if you want to add some flavor to your porch. I like that the string is not overly visible, so your focus remains on the plant.
