Succulents are so popular. I don’t know if they’ll ever go out of style. I know we’ve made tons of terrariums for succulents on the blog but I don’t know if we’ve ever made this. A DIY Mug Succulent Planter. It’s a succulent planter in a mug. How cute is that! This project is super simple mostly because we’re using faux succulents. If you’re looking for a fun summer project or a new DIY planter idea then look no further. This adorable design we’re using on our mug is from Makers Gonna Learn. It’s a membership website full of cut files for your die cutting machine. It has over 200 files with new ones added every month. If you have a die cutting machine you need to go check it out. I hope you enjoy learning how to make this succulent mug.

- Fux Succulents
- Filler Rocks
- Cricut Maker
- Weeding Tool Set
- Transfer Paper
- Size, cut, and weed your little design with your die cutting machine and weeding tools. We used a Cricut Maker!
- After you weed your design add a piece of transfer paper and apply it to your mug. Make sure you apply good pressure. On a curved surface like that sometimes it can be difficult to remove the transfer sheet.
- Once you removed the transfer sheet fill the mug with little rocks or pebbles. They give your succulent stems something to keep them in place.
- Add your succulents until you’re satisfied.
I love the way this project looks. Who knew a mug would make such a cute planter? You can use your favorite color of vinyl to add some personal style, too. This is the perfect teen craft.
