10 Faux Succulent DIYs for the Cactus Lover in You

Succulents are super trendy right now, mostly because it’s an easy way to add greenery to your environment without too much care. They’re also very adaptable and can be planted in virtually any container. So they can look adorable pretty much however you want to plant them.

However — if you’re like me, somehow you still can’t manage to keep your plants healthy and, well um, alive. So, I scoured Pinterest to find the best faux succulent projects so you wouldn’t have to. Without further ado, here is a collection of DIYs that give you the succulent vibe without having to remember to water a single plant. It’s a win win.

  1. I agree. Succulents are cool – I have 6 succulents on my windowsill 😉

    Now, I haven’t got any succulent DIY ideas, but if I have one I’ll tell you.

    Sorry, if I made any mistakes. English is not my ethnic language so I’m not perfect at English like you. I’m Polish.
    Love from Poland ❤
