How to Create a Succulent Log Planter

You may be feeling a bit of Spring Fever and creating a Succulent Log Planter may just help with Spring Fever. I have heard from a few people we are to have an early Spring!
 Until the snow and ice melt, we can create Spring!
 What do you need?

Spade Bit
A log with three holes drilled using a spade bit. It would be an inch and a quarter wide and inch deep. The three holes are where you will plant your plants.

Quality potting soil
Paint Brush

 You will fill your holes with the potting soil and plant your succulent.
If you are messy with your soil use a paint brush to brush away any extra soil.
Using glue you will glue your moss, rocks and decorations.

 Water your succulents weekly mine are growing very nicely.
In the summer you can set your log planter outside.

It would be great fun to have a Let's Make a Log Succulent Party.. what do you say, who wants to come on over?



  1. This is really great Carla. I love how easy this was to make. Ok you do need to have a Come On Over and Make a Succulent Log Planter Party!!!! This would be a fun project. Have a great weekend.

  2. Carla, I love this! I think it is such a great idea to bring spring inside until it actually arrives! And it looks pretty easy to make, something I could do. I think I will look in the neighbor's yard (we have no trees) for a small log and give it a try. I will let you know if I do and how it turns out! Thank you for the great idea! Love and hugs!

  3. And you have a hedgehog! I love the succulent log idea, Carla, and when the roads don't have snow or ice on them, I'm ready for instruction! :-)

  4. I have lots of logs that we burn in the stove to keep the power bill low in this cold winter however I don't think that I will be making a succulent log but it would be a great project for kids because they don't require much maintenance. I think it's amazing how little soil is needed to grow succulents on a log. However, i would be more interested in growing button edible mushrooms. I've always been interested in growing mushrooms but never tried it. I love your cute little hedgehog ornament.
    It's sunny here today.
    Hugs, Julia

  5. Wish I had all the stuff needed to make a log like yours right now. That is so neat. That would be fun. Right now it's too wet to get out and find a suitable log. Rain rain rain! We could see the sun by Sunday afternoon, they are telling us now. Thank you for showing us your succulent log.

  6. I do I do!!! This is so cute and I love succulents!!

  7. Yes, this would make a great party! Each person could also bring their own log. Glad you said how often to water them, that would be a challenge, what with being in the log. They are so cool!

  8. Me, me, me! I would love to come and have a spring fever succulent party with you! :)

  9. I would love to make one. BTW are you listening to the Brewers v. Cubbies game? I was listening to it, but we have tornadoes all over the place, so I'm watching local coverage now. Kris Bryant had a good game!

  10. And do you know that a year ago I read where a designer said succulents were out? I don't think so!

    This would be a great centerpiece!

  11. That is so cool! I wonder if my cats would leave it be? I may have to test this idea :)

  12. I'd like to come now that my drama seems to be ebbing! I could use some fun and this looks relaxing! Thanks for caring about me this past week. It's meant a lot to me! Sweet hugs, Diane

  13. Oh, now that is fun. I have some succulents in clay pots and I love them. The chipmunks keep digging them up, though, so I need to get more. It's fun to see them arranged in different colors, sizes, and forms like this.
