cereal box succulent planters

This post is sponsored by Post in collaboration with Pebbles. All ideas and opinions are our own.

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.

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.

  1. Nooo, those are just TOO cute! And so easy, too! I couldn’t believe that those were cereal boxes, because the material looked like something totally different. Just wondering, did you seal the planters with Mod Podge or something else? I’d be worried about the Sharpie decorated ones in particular running. Pinning! πŸ™‚ Lisa

  2. These are too cute! I’m in love with the fox! (Also super smart to paint the cardboard before attaching it. That has to make it so much easier!)

  3. They look porcelain! Sooo Pretty! I love the little fox! I REALLY love your succulent planter key holder! Thanks for sharing! #HOmeMattersParty

  5. You’re so right, that little fox is adorable and it’s a great way to re-use cereal boxes. I would never have guessed that’s what they were if you hadn’t posted the step by step. Great idea

  6. These are sooo cute! Oh my goodness, I’ve got to try this, especially since we have a bunch of succulent “babies” that need homes. πŸ™‚ Thank you for such a cute idea. πŸ™‚

  7. These are so stinking’ adorable. I could not wrap my head around the cereal box part and how it held dirt and water, but it is all clear to me now! Cardboard box plant koozy. Love it!

  8. Hi! Juste came from dianarambles.com Pin Me Linky Party 228. Saw your entry and pined it to my DIY home decoration board. What a nice and simple idea. Just like I love them! Thanks!

  10. The number of times I put a plant on an old plate or saucer because we don’t have a nice fancy planter for it o go in and I’ve never thought to do something like this! I’m having a real “doh!” moment! Why didn’t I think of this? It’s perfect and so easy to refresh when you want a change.
    Thanks so much.

  11. Squeee…this is too cute! I love that it’s made from recycled cereal boxes and it would be so easy to change up. Pinned!
