Fans of indoor plants – miniature succulents, I want to offer an interesting idea of creating vertical wall shelves. This organizer for flower pots, you can easily make your own hands. If you prefer other succulents house plants, then they can be nicely placed on the wall, more original than the traditional way – on a windowsill. To work you will need a minimum of materials and tools.

So, to create vertical wall shelves for succulents we need the following materials and tools:

DIY: Swan Succulent Planters


I don’t think I’m alone when I say that succulents are some of the few plants I can keep alive. I love all the cute little succulent varieties, and I can’t help but add to my collection. Another thing I’ve been collecting are these miniature swan favors. I’ve found different sizes and shapes at discount stores and thrift shops, and they are too adorable to leave behind. The finish on them is usually a bit tacky, though, so I gave these beauties a quick  makeover and turned them into planters for my little succulents. Right now, I have these lined up along my windowsill, but they’re perfect centerpieces for a spring gathering, too. Or keep them as favors and give them as gifts to your party guests!


-Plastic swan wedding favors (similar styles here, here and here)
-gesso primer
-paint (and metallic nail polish)

Step 1: Prime the outside (and inside, if desired) of the swans using the gesso primer. Let dry completely.

Step 2: Paint the swans black or white over the primer and let dry. Step 3: Use a fine paintbrush to paint in the beak and eye details. I used metallic nail polish for the beaks. Let dry. Step 4: Pot your succulents into the planters. I used a piece of foil to line the cavity so that the succulent wouldn’t be sitting on a painted interior. You could also use a small vessel like a disposable plastic shot glass and poke holes in the bottom if your plants need more drainage. Or just poke holes in the bottom with a needle or thumb tack. Or if you don’t have a green thumb, fake succulents would work, too!
