Succulents are everywhere this year. They're so on-trend. How about creating a garden for your succulents in a watermelon pot. Not only would this look great for summer but would add a bit of cheer to those dark, winter days. Plus, this succulent painted pot DIY couldn’t be easier to make. You just need six things!
Succulent Painted Pot DIYSupplies:
- 8" terra cotta pot
- Variety of cacti & succulents
- Foam paint brush
- Paint (I mixed pearlized pink, red and white together to get a watermelon pink)
- Black Sharpie
Step 1: Mix together a pearlized pink, red, and white paint to get a pretty watermelon pink shade. Paint the pot with 2-3 coats of watermelon pink paint, letting the paint dry between each coat.
Step 2: Paint 2-3 coats of green on the rim of the pot, letting the paint dry between coats.
Step 3: Once the paint has dried overnight, use the black Sharpie or black paint pen to draw watermelon seeds all over the pot.
Step 4: Add soil and succulents to the newly painted clay pot!
Doesn't this look beautiful!
How easy is our succulent painted pot DIY?! I plan to make a handful of these beauties! You could also plant an aloe vera plant with the succulents for a little more variety.
