Just add some faux succulents to this adorable ceramic bunny planter from Target to brighten-up your home for Spring!
DIY Bunny Succulent Planter
The Target Dollar Spot is my jam! I can’t get enough of it, and I spend way too much money on things that cost a couple dollars.
Can I get an Amen!?
However, they always have the most adorable stuff for each season and holiday! I’m all about the details, so it’s so hard not to pass up some of the cutest things ever!
This bunny planter was no exception! At first I thought it was just a white ceramic bunny with gold ears, which Target does have, but when I picked it up I realized that it could be used as a planter! To be honest, I’m not really sure what it is. I’m guessing it’s a planter or a vase, but it was also close to the cleaning supplies in the dollar spot, so I can picture it as a place to keep your sponges next to your kitchen sink!
As usual, this project is an easy one and doesn’t cost a lot of money! I decided to make my bunny succulent planter using fake plants. At the moment, I don’t need another living thing in my house to keep alive. Feel free to use real succulents!
I found my plants at Michaels along with the florist foam. World Market has a set of six faux succulents that are adorable and inexpensive, since mine are not available online. All I did was carve the foam using a sharp knife, place it in the bunny planter, stick the succulents into the foam, and top the foam with some green moss! I love how sweet and simple it turned out!
Details to DIY the Bunny Succulent Planter:
- Target ceramic bunny planter (Dollar Spot)
- Florist foam
- Sharp knife
- Succulents (The faux succulents that I used are not available online, but HERE are some adorable and inexpensive ones from World Market!)
- Green moss
First, unwrap the florist foam and begin cutting off the corners to create a shape that will fit inside the bunny succulent planter. The foam is easy to cut. Make sure that you take away small pieces at a time. You can always remove more, but you can’t add it back on!
Next, slide your florist foam into the bunny succulent planter.
Now you can begin to add your succulents! The foam is soft enough that you will just push your stems into the material. Before you stick them in you can play around with the layout. It’s a little hard to see, but I have three different types of faux succulents. I placed the similar ones together to form small groupings. If you don’t like your arrangement, you can always pull it out of the foam and move it around.
Finally, push your green moss all around the stems of the succulents so that you can no longer see the florist foam.
DIY Bunny Succulent Planter
This DIY would certainly work on any planter, so there’s no need to go hoping down the bunny trail looking for this little guy!
I added the bunny succulent planter to my DIY Three-Tiered Stand that I shared last week! I love how it mixes with the pops of color from my Cheerful & Rustic Easter Table! I like having lots of neutral colors when decorating, like white in this instance, to serve as a backdrop for some pops of fun colors!
