Help make your front door or entryway more inviting with this easy to make succulent welcome sign planter. What a great way to display your address as well!
I finally made something I wanted to try a long time ago. This easy succulent welcome sign planter is exactly what our front door was missing. There are numbers above the front door, which is why I didn’t put house numbers on mine, but this is what I originally intended for this project. And because we live in a condo, there aren’t any compromises in removing the current. :: Insert eye roll here ::
Anyway, just because I can’t put the address numbers on mine, doesn’t mean you can’t. There are so many possibilities with this fun DIY and I just know you’re going to love it. Nothing like making beautiful things with some functionality.
Here’s what you will need:
- Pre-made succulent planter (I found mine for $3 at Michaels)
- Serving tray or larger piece of wood
- Moss on a roll
- Battery operated lights
- Hot glue
- Number stickers
Ok, first let me just say, I found moss on a roll. I’m trying to figure out why nobody has ever introduced me to this before. This could be life changing.
Since I’m not very handy with power tools, I used a drill to cut holes around the back of my succulent planter box and removed the back completely. We don’t need it!
Cut a piece of moss off of the roll to match the size of the front of the planter.
Turn the succulent planter over and begin to weave the lights in and out of the chicken wire. Try to get them as even as possible so one side isn’t brighter than the other. I also hot glued mine in various places just to give them some extra security.
Because I don’t exactly have the greenest of thumbs, I went with fake succulents. The least amount of maintaining I have to do the better.
Glue the moss to the front of the succulent planter and begin arranging your plants in desired form.
With everything securely in place, begin figuring out where you want to place your planter. Because I used a serving tray for mine I simply took out two of the wood slats with a hammer. It wasn’t my original plane but the wood started to splinter so I just went with it.
You could also nail the planter right to the wood for more of a 3D effect. Either way it will look great!
