We’re long time cereal eaters. And big fans of upcyling. We love a good challenge to turn trash to treasure, what better way to do so than our new cereal box succulent planters. We are loving the classic trend of succulents and the current trend of animal faces everywhere so decided to combine the two into these easy-to-craft planters:
You’ll need a cereal box, (we enjoyed Cinnamon Pebbles, mm!), a mason jar, small planter, scissors, a hot glue gun, acrylic paint and a Sharpie.
Cut the cereal box apart with your scissors.
Measure your planter then cut your cardboard to size to wrap around it.
(We left little triangles for our fox ears.)
Paint and decorate your cardboard.
I freehanded the scallops with a pencil then filled it in with Sharpie. The coral on the fox is acrylic paint, I just used a little pin to help with its foxy face.
Hot glue the seam around your planter or mason jar. Fill with succulents.
We used artificial succulents for easy greenery with no fuss.
That’s really it. Just plop them in and enjoy. :)
Isn’t this fox so darn cute?
They fit right in on my dining room shelves. :)
