It’s time for our monthly thrift store challenge and I am seriously excited to show you what I made this month. I will show you How To Make A DIY Embroidery Hoop Succulent Planter shown here:
Every once in awhile I have an idea and it goes in a completely different direction as I’m creating it. That is exactly what happened with this project. But I’m so happy it did, because I love it even more now! The cool thing about creating is you never know how it will turn out. I’ve had enough epic fails to truly know that!

You may have noticed that I love to work with embroidery hoops and succulents. In fact, I’ve made so many embroidery hoop projects that I plan to create a page here so you can easily find them! Let’s get to today’s Embroidery Hoop Succulent Planter:
How To Make A DIY Embroidery Hoop Succulent Planter
Assorted Fake Succulent Plants, 9 Pcs Different Faux Succulents
SuperMoss (25322) Forest Moss Preserved,8oz
Embroidery Hoops Set 4 Sizes
Solar Candle (optional)
I picked up this set of 3 embroidery hoops at a thrift store for $1. I planned to leave them blue, but then wasn’t feeling the shades of green against it.
So I decided to use my favorite galvanized metal technique that I show you in this post.
Basically, you paint the entire piece in black, then cover it in silver, leaving some of the black showing. Here it is totally black:
Now with the silver:
I arranged the hoops into the shape I liked and added a little hot glue where it met.
Next, I started adding moss to the bottom of the hoop. I wanted it to hang down, so left some loose pieces.
Continue to fill in the base and add the succulents to the embroidery hoop until you are happy with the placement. You could totally stop here and make it a cool tabletop centerpiece. But I am planning my daughter’s outdoor Graduation Party, so I am making several of these to hang across the patio with solar lights. I will update pics when they are hung up at night.
For now I hung it in my craft room and it looks pretty there too! I like to use fishing wire to hang things because you don’t see the wire.
The candle was attached into a small foam square and a bit of hot glue keeps it secure.you could also add pillar candles if you like, but definitely the battery operated.
I really hope you like this embroidery hoop succulent planter. They are so versatile and the best thing is, no watering needed!
These would be fun suspended from trees or on a covered porch. You can also add pops of color if you like. Check out another project I made with succulents Galvanized Bucket Succulent Here.
