Ravenous Craft

Repurposed Log Planters

Mallory LanceComment
For April's craft, we made planters for small plants and succulents from pieces of wood and foraged branches. As the spring season awakens the plant life around us, it's nice to add touches of plant life around the home. These small planters made from repurposed wood are a great craft to make collectively, and the creative possibilities are endless. Find some wood that you like the look of and gather your succulents or small weeds and try out this craft.

Supplies needed:

  • Repurposed wood logs or driftwood
  • A power drill fitted with a one-inch spade bit (as pictured above)
  • Soil
  • Succulents
  • Small decorative rocks

1. Drill holes into your pieces of wood, log, or driftwood with your spade bit.

2. Plant the tiny succulents in the soil, keeping it fairly dry as you will not want them to dry out.

3. Add the small rocks to the top layer of the soil for decorative effect and also to keep the moisture from dissipating too quickly.

That's all there is to it!
