DIY: Brick Succulent Planters

DIY + How To

We’re still not quite over ReadyMade leaving us, and want to bring attention to some of our favorite DIY modern projects they’ve posted throughout the years. This is a great succulent/candle holder brick project because it involves things you probably already have lying around or could find easily (bricks) and makes them beautiful and useful by creating spots for candles and succulents. We’ve seen good tealight holder projects and good succulent container projects, but never both at once! Brilliant. More here.

    I LOVE this! Just this past Christmas I made bricks into candles by pouring wax directing into the holes, but this is MUCH cleaner and I LOVE the idea of adding succulents–the new rage! Thx!

    Ha, these are so simple, yet very interesting!

    I can see our garden/patio being full of these in no time!

    I haven’t seen brick candle holders until now. Seeing this image has inspired some creative mojo. Thank you for sharing.
