How To Make Brick Succulent Planters

used-brick

Succulents are fun and easy to grow and you just need some cuttings to start your own garden.

These brick planters give a nice organic feel to our succulent garden and are relatively easy to make, although it’s kinda messy.

You need:
Bricks – preferably used and slightly beat up or damaged or you can go with very clean looking bricks
Drill
Carbide tipped masonry hole saw bit
Clamp
Succulent cuttings
Soil

    This is really interesting and challenging to make. It can also be used as a wall decoration.
