Succulents are such neat little plants. They can withstand a great deal of neglect and still keep on growing. They have great flowers (if you have the right conditions and are lucky and have a green thumb) and are very interesting in their own right when it comes to shape and design. Creative succulent planters can be made out of many household items.

Succulents need creative planters to show them off! Not your average run of the mill plain pot, but something out of the ordinary to show case them.

These are made by Orange County Etsy shop owner Paper Dame. The planters are lined with a waterproof seal to keep your planter happy and useful for years to come. You can even request specific book colors or titles if you wish.
