Kawaii DIY Planters

Posted on


Cacti and succulents are your friends if you haven’t got a green thumb. Despite the fact that I even manage to kill succulents, I still enjoy having small plants around the house. And they look even cuter in the following easy to make kawaii DIY planters.


A large plastic bottle with ‘legs’, white paint and waterproof markers are all you need to make this incredibly cute cat planter. And if you punch some holes in the side, you can even use it as a hanging planter!


These kawaii animal planters are made out of an old milk carton. The instructions are in Swedish, but if you use acrylic paint and look carefully at the pictures it should work out fine.


Did you know that you can use wet cotton pads to grow cress? Wilma shows you how to make tiny face cups with cress, which is great to spice up your salad or sandwich.

These pastel coloured planters from Jenn Smith don’t come with a tutorial, but if you’ve got some terracotta pots and paint you should be able to make them.

    This was the best way to put a smile on my face today!! Thanks for posting this…I think we have gotten so into our tech that we forget the pleasure of creating something simple out of repurposed materials. Hurrah!
