Don’t you love grapevine spheres? I love their rustic elegance. Since I’m horrible at keeping plants alive, I’m always looking for ways to add natural elements to my home decor that don’t require any maintenance on my part. I had several ideas in mind when I ordered this grapevine ball, but it wasn’t until I was sitting down with my materials that I finally decided on what I wanted to create: a DIY grapevine sphere succulent planter.
Don’t you just love how simple it is? Of course there are lots of ways to glam it up – adding green moss, beads, string lights or small flowers, but I love the natural simplicity of this version. And the best part? It doesn’t take any special tools to make and whips up in just a few minutes! So gather the following supplies and follow along to make your own DIY grapevine sphere succulent planter!
DIY Grapevine Planter Supplies:
- Darice Grapevine Sphere – Size of choice
- Darice Spanish Moss
- Green Moss, String Lights, Flowers (Optional)
- Darice Succulent Plants
Stuff the sphere with the Spanish moss. I think green moss would be pretty as well. Now would also be the time to add in any mini string lights for some added shimmer.
Ready for the last step? I told you this was going to be easy! Roll the DIY grapevine ball until you find a place where it will stand up without rolling. Mine ended up being where the hole that I widened was. With the ball standing in place, add the succulent picks to the top. I added two, but you can always add more. And that’s all there is to it! I’ve received a lot of compliments on these. I think they’d look great lined up in the center of a table, or used throughout your home. I hope you enjoy, and if you make one, please share it with me on my Facebook page! I’d love to see your version.
