30 Cutest Indoor Succulent Garden Ideas

Succulents are plants that can easily thrive indoors, especially if you do not have a lot of space to accommodate a garden outdoors. Check out the following 30 cute and innovative indoor succulent garden ideas!

Shamrock Succulent Planter

While this planter design is referred to as Shamrock, you can experiment with all kinds of designs. The idea is to cut out a shape into a small square plywood (using a scroll saw or any other tool) and then assemble all the parts so that the succulents may be arranged within the area that has been cut out.

Seashell Terrariums

Making a succulent terrarium adorned with seashells is a great way to experiment with a succulent garden. It’ll give the succulents an almost ethereal vibe and is a great way to use the beautiful seashells one may have collected from holidays over the years.

Mermaid Garden

Similar to the seashell terrarium, one can simply take a shallow bowl to arrange the succulents as they please. Then have fun with pebbles and marbles in different shades of blue, to create the seabed. Finally, add the beautiful mermaid figurines resting by the succulents!

Succulent Centrepieces

One has heard of flower centerpieces during weddings or special functions, but a succulent centerpiece is an even better option because it will not wilt, unlike cut flowers! With the right care and drainage, succulent centerpieces can last for years.

It might also be a great idea to combine it with a wreath or a garland for a better look. You may find some great options in stores like HeftyBerry.

Succulents on Driftwood

A piece of driftwood is a great and unique container to plant succulents in. This project will require some hot gluing, which can take some people aback. But when done correctly, it will not harm the succulents. You also don’t need soil for this method, good old green moss should do the trick!

Mason Jar Succulent Pots
