Dinosaur Succulent Planters

Fall is coming, but that doesn't mean you have to get rid of all of your plants! We're moving our succulents back inside and giving them a new home - inside of dinosaurs! RAWR! Jd and I created our own dinosaur planters and wanted to share the easy DIY project with you. This is a super simple, easy-to-make project that you can finish in a few hours as long as you have the right materials. Read below and make your own!



  • Foam dinosaurs (we found ours at the local flea market in Fort Green)
  • White spray paint for plastic
  • Succulents
  • Exacto Knife
  • Soil for the succulents
  • A drill


  1. Spray paint your foam dinosaurs - they may need more than one coat of paint. Let them sit outside to dry.
  2. Cut out a small, circular portion of the top with the exacto knife, this is where the plant will sit. Make sure it's deep enough to allow room for the plant to grow.
  3. Drill 2-3 small holes in the bottom (on the belly) of the dinosaur - this will allow the planter to drain so that the soil doesn't get moldy after you water it.
  4. Fill up your dinosaur with soil and add the plant! Now you're done and ready to enjoy these awesome planters!


We hope you'll try out this project and share your own versions of these planters with us! Let us know what you think in the comments below and don't forget to follow us on Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook!
