We declared April the month of plants, plus there’s something about spring that makes you want to start fresh, to give old things a new life. Combine the two and you get this easy upcycling project! Since succulents are so tiny (at least when you first buy them), I thought they’d be perfect for this old toothbrush holder I’ve been meaning to repurpose. It’s nice, white ceramics, but the rest of the set broke so it was just sitting there. Of course, some good old gold spray paint was in order! Other than drying time, making this succulent planter takes no time at all. And the supplies are really basic, too. Want to make your own? Here’s how:
What you need:
- ceramic toothbrush holder
- gold spray paint
- masking tape
Turn a Toothbrush Holder into a Succulent Planter
Start by masking part of your toothbrush holder with tape, then spray paint it gold. When the paint is completely dry, remove the tape. Start filling the future planter with soil – I used the lower hole for this, which is also good for drainage. Plant a succulent in each hole and enjoy!
