DIY Succulent Planter Dollar Tree Craft
I used a little faux eucalyptus, but you use use these for any small plants. Because the containers hold about two ounces, they make a very good planter for one individual succulent plant. Be sure to do your research on succulent planters.
- nautical cotton rope ( I used the 11 ft package from Dollar Tree)
- nautical jute rope (I ended using about 10ft)
- glue gun and glue sticks
- 6-pack square mini dessert cups (these hold about 2 ounces)
How to a Mini Make DIY Dollar Tree Planter
- Start by adding a line of glue around the bottom of the dessert cup and wrap the cotton rope around making sure to press down so that it adheres to the glue.
- Continue adding glue and wrapping until you reach the top.
- Cut off the rope and make sure the end of the rope is glued down securely.
- Repeat the same to make more cotton rope planters, or use the jute rope and follow the same instructions.
