DIY Recycled Can Succulent Centerpiece

DIY Recycled Can Succulent Centerpiece
(Disclaimer: I am working with Miracle-Gro for this project and was provided with samples and compensation-but all opinions are my own.)

This season, Miracle-Gro wants to inspire everyone to get out and Gro something. There’s a way to incorporate “Gro-ing” into a myriad of different DIY projects-and you don’t have to be an avid gardener or live out in the country to accomplish it!  All you need is a little creativity and inspiration-and you can create a beautiful, living piece of art for just about any occasion/recipe/area of your home. What did I make? A super simple succulent centerpiece that’s perfect for spring and summer.

DIY Recycled Can Centerpiece Step 1

 

Besides being beautiful, it’s budget friendly! It uses recycled cans from your kitchen. The only thing you’ll need to pick up is a bag of Miracle-Gro soil and succulents. Once you have those you can get started.

  • STEP 1: Clean cans and make sure they’re completely  dry. When choosing cans, pick a variety of shapes and sizes of cans for contrast.
  • STEP 2: Drill 2-3 holes into the bottom of each can for drainage.
  • STEP 3: Place a few rocks/pebbles from your yard over the holes at the bottom of each can.

DIY Recycled Can Centerpiece Step 2

  • STEP 4: Fill each can with Miracle-Gro soil. I used Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix. I like that it protects against over & underwatering and it absorbs 33% more water!

DIY Recycled Can Centerpiece Step 3

  • STEP 5: Place succulents into each can. Fill with additional Miracle-Gro soil if needed. Place a small plate or plastic tray under each can to protect table.

DIY Recycled Can Succulent Centerpiece

Because you know I like options, I think these would be fantastic made with herbs as well.

I love the idea of having these on an outdoor table during a party, picnic, or family gathering. They’re also the perfect height so no one will be bobbing around tall centerpieces to see and talk with each other (huge pet peeve of mine – be mindful of centerpiece heights people) Another great idea, use a smaller can (like the one pictured above) and plant individual succulents per can. When your guests are leaving give them one as a “happy”. What’s that? I call small gifts that make people happy “happies”. Who wouldn’t want one of those?

    I think a few different sized cans… (a regular sized can, a #10 can, and one of those giant popcorn buckets you get at Christmas time that is divided into thirds would be perfect for the biggest one) placed inside one another, each one up higher than the last (like a wedding cake) would be perfect to grow herbs in. Each layer can house a different herb and the whole thing can be positioned close enough to your kitchen to make it accessible when time to cook!

    I love your recycled can idea. I’ve been using plastic yogurt tubs for my plants when I start planting tomato seeds. Need to transfer them to larger pots when they are bigger though. I would decorate my yogurt containers and plant something nice, like succulent or herbs that they can later use in cooking as party favors. My guests always appreciate a thoughtful gift.

    These turned out so nice Paula! I could see myself doing something similar to this with the cans, love them.
    I’ve been wanting a salad pot, but not just a round pot, but more like a wooden box. I’m sure I can figure out a way to pull it together 🙂

    I love your idea. I would use the cans I buy steel cut oats in to plant my herbs, and use them as centerpieces on an outdoor table on my patio during grill season.
    Today, I bought two herbs/flowers that I’ve never bought before to try out on my patio: lavender, and bee balm. I can’t wait to try using them this summer in teas, and fruit salads, and to scent sugar to be used to coat sugar cookies. I think it’s going to be such fun to try growing and cooking with new herbs I’ve never tried before.

    Oh when I was cleaning out the shed by our pool the other day, I found a bunch of old sand pails….all different colors. Was trying to think of something to do with them…but now….I have an idea after reading your post! I would love to plant flowers or plants in them and put them out by the pool in the rock gardens! that would be so neat with all the different colors!

    We just recently planted a community garden and it’s so much fun to go over with the kids to water it and check how the veggies and herbs are growing!

    Living in a small apartment there isn’t much room for plants, but I’ve always wanted to use a small pair of crocs as planters. They come in different colors and I think they would fit nicely on the ledge just outside my window.
