5/31 | DIY Mug Succulent Planter

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.

  1. Size, cut, and weed your little design with your die cutting machine and weeding tools. We used a Cricut Maker!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Add your succulents until you’re satisfied.
