Up-cycling Broken Pottery Planter


I love finding new ways to use things.  I picked up these broken mugs from a beach in California that has TONS of washed up pottery and china from an old manufacturer called Tepco China Company.  I decided to turn them into a succulent planter.

I started by gluing pieces onto a piece of used fence board, using E6000 glue.  I had to “piece” them together in order to create space for plants.


I purchased 2″ pots of succulents at the local nursery and planted them in the mugs.  Because the planting areas were pieced together, there were plenty of areas for water drainage.

It turned out really cool!  A great gift for a friend of mine!


Happy Planting!
