Do you want some small, easy to make, succulent planters for your home? Empty wine bottles are one of the most elegant materials you can use! The examples you see below show just how perfectly wine bottles and succulents go together…
Cutting bottles can be difficult at first. If this is your first time doing a project with glass bottles, you can go with the simplest method of dividing the bottle horizontally as shown in our main image above. Glass bottle planters cut like this can only accommodate one larger succulent at a time.
If you have some experience in glass bottle cutting, then you can cut the bottle vertically so that your bottle planter is lying down with more surface area for more succulents!
Whichever way you choose to cut your wine bottles, it’s always best to use real glass cutters for a cleaner cut. Don’t forget to sand down the edges, too, to avoid injury from your DIY planter.
These wine bottle planters are perfect living decorations at the dining table, coffee table, or kitchen counters. They are also great gift ideas for friends and family!
Is this going to be your next upcycling project? :)
