Creating a Succulent Planter

Pigment, San Diego CA

I recently discovered the cutest store in North Park, San Diego called Pigment. Apart from lovely home decor, party supplies and accessories, Pigment has a studio where you can put together your own succulent planters! I absolutely love this idea and think it is such a fun and creative activity to do with friends, to make as gifts or to make a lovely planter for your own home. 
At Pigment, you can choose from a variety of glass and ceramic pots, small and large succulents and cacti, and beautiful dried flowers. You can begin to create the aesthetic of your planter by choosing the sand color you want and from there you can also pick stones, geodes, crystals and orbs in any color of the rainbow you desire.
If you don't get a chance to stop into pigment here in San Diego, you can always gather the items to make your own at home. I've laid out the steps to creating your own planter below!

Step 1: Pick a pot and fill it to the top with soil
Step 2: Plant the succulents in the soil then fill in the planter with sand. (I used a brush to get the leaves of the plants soil and sand free)

Step 3: Add in any air plants or dried flowers
Step 4: Add your finishing touches such as geodes, crystals or glass orbs.
