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.
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. 🙂
Big thanks to Post for challenging us today! Keep up with them Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Love this craft, ladies–super cute and oh so foxy! Pinned and facebooked 🙂
Well thank you Diana! So sweet of you 🙂
This is so cute! It’s hard to believe you used a cereal box to make it. Thanks for joining the Family Joy Link Party!
I adore these planters! The fox is just too cute! Thanks for sharing your crafty inspiration on this week’s Monday Funday Party!

The little fox planter is adorable – I love these ideas
Adorable! Thanks for sharing @Vintage Charm!
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! 🙂 Lisa
Oh thanks Lisa! They’re actually faux so no mess with water 😉
Thank you for pinning and popping by! xo
Cute AND resourceful- awesome craft, you two!! My girls will love this.
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!)
They look porcelain! Sooo Pretty! I love the little fox! I REALLY love your succulent planter key holder! Thanks for sharing! #HOmeMattersParty

totally cute. I would have guessed an oatmeal container not starting from a rectangular cereal box. Thanks for sharing at #CCBG

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

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. 🙂 Thank you for such a cute idea. 🙂
These are ADOREABLE! I don’t have any cereal boxes, but could probably use some pasta boxes after dinner tonight!
Cute ideas! Pinned and shared
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!
Haha! Faux for the win! 😉

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.
LOL, thanks, Julie!!
So pretty and fun to make, I love succulents and this is a cute way to reuse those cereal boxes!
These are so stinking cute and this is recycling at it’s best!
Super cute idea!!
These are so cute. And so easily to make so you can make a grouping.
These are so adorable! I will make one this weekend. 🙂 I came over from Tutorials & Tips Link party and will pin.
Oh yay! Have fun crafting!
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!
Wow! Had I not seen the pictures I wouldn’t believe they look so great! They do fit on shelves which is fantastic! Thanks!
Thanks, Tiffany! They were so fun to make 🙂
Such a cute idea!
This is such a cute idea and much cheaper than buying the real ceramic ones! Would u please tell me where u found that darling little owl planter?? So cute!!
Thanks, Pris! It was an impluse buy on Etsy…didn’t realize how itty bitty the owl was for the price, ouch: https://www.etsy.com/shop/HinklevilleHandmade So cute though, huh 🙂
