As we say hello to another Monday, I thought I would brighten it up with a spring themed One Spot DIY. Just look at this adorable succulent garden box that you can make in just a few steps. I have this thing for succulents. They look gorgeous bunched together, I love the different green hues, and I can’t kill them. I found a few in the corner of my patio from over a month ago that I completely forgot about. And yes, they were still alive and had grown! My kind of plant. 

The spring items are out in full force in the One Spot at Target. One of the few items I grabbed recently was this white wooden box. They also had it in a gorgeous light blue color but white goes better with my home decor. I knew right away I wanted to turn it into a succulent garden to add a few house plants to my home. It’s perfect to place on a table, counter, or any flat surface that needs a pop of greenery. Here’s how you can create your own.


Wooden box from the One Spot || Drill || Drill Bit {any size} || Dirt || Succulents || Burlap || Scissors 

The How-To: 

Step 1: You want to make sure that excess water can flow through the wooden box. Using your drill and drill bit, drill holes in the bottom of your box. I drilled 9 holes in the bottom of mine. 

Step 2: Since the box has a slight opening on the sides, cut a piece of burlap to place in the box. This will ensure that the dirt will stay in and allow the water to drain. 

Step 3:Once the burlap is in place, start filing your box up with dirt. Fill the box a little over halfway.

Step 4:Plant your succulents throughout the box. Add additional dirt to secure them in place. I did leave a little space between the plants to give them room to grow. 

Your gorgeous succulent garden box is bound to be a conversation piece when having guests over to your home. It adds the perfect touch of greenery while also serving as a home decor. I even found the cutest little glass water spray bottle that will be a breeze to use when watering the succulents. 

Where will you be placing your succulents? Mine will be placed right by our front door to greet guests as soon as they walk in. Target’s One Spot has pulled through once again!
