Bird Cage Succulent Planter
by Lori Fortini Follow

Planters in a bird cage screams Easter to me . . . this would make a great holiday centerpiece!  I’m putting mine on a bookcase beside a window so it gets the light it needs.


  • First I took cut a piece of heavy watercolor paper in a circle to line the bottom of the cage.  Then I cut the rim off a paper bowl and used my glue gun to cover the edges of the bowl with moss, letting it fall over into the bowl.

  • To plant the succulents, put a layer of stones in the bottom of the bowl/planter.  On top of that add potting soil designed for succulents.  It is very light and drains well.  Wet soil is deadly for succulents.

  • Lastly, add the plants.  Tucks some moss and stones in around to create a natural feel.

  • I finish it off by sitting the bowl into the cage and adding some moss to fill in any open spaces that show the bowl.  Now you are ready to display!
