DIY Succulent Head Planter

Today's project is both creepy and cool (amazing!). My Mom and I love decorating our porch and patio with planters and flowers so we're always working on projects for it. Somewhere a while back we had seen some cement "heads" turned into planters and we totally wanted to make a version of it.

So here it is! We got both the cosmetology head and the sedum succulents free off of the Buy Nothing Project, and I already had the spray paint so this was basically a free project! Yeah!

I made a little video if you want to see my process!

(Also, the daisy is not planted in there- It's only a flower stuck in for fun.)



If you want to make your own planter out of a plastic head, here's how:

 1. Use a hot knife to cut open the head.
2. Remove any styrofoam inside.
3. Spray paint with Hammered Finished Spray Paint (by Krylon)
4. Fill with dirt.
5. Plant succulents and sedum "hair" inside the top of the head.

Easy Peasy! But be careful with the knife!

What do you think? Totally creepy? I hope the UPS man still leaves me packages with this head staring at him from the porch...

(pssst- Did you like my video? It's my first!)

  1. Found this on the handmade link-up site through craftgossip? I think. Love the head! A garden center I visited recently had them cast of concrete and painted to look like this and they were upwards of a hundred bucks. I will be on the lookout for a disembodied head at the thrift stores this year!
