Succulent Planters with Neon Pink Pebbles

Succulent Planters with Neon Pink Pebbles

Pink Pebbled Succulent Planters

After we spent approximately 19 hours in the pet store obsessing over all of the animals and leaving with nothing except for the pink aquarium gravel it was nap time for P and project time for me.

I got this big ol’ 5 pound bag of neon pink pebbles for about $4. I started with this faux plant from IKEA. This plant has been in P’s room for a few weeks since we are working on her big girl room. I covered up the really obviously fake dirt with the pink pebbles and it instantly looked awesome.

Since I had a bag full of pink pebbles, no succulent was safe. I popped this cute little one into a tea cup and dotted it with some gold paint for a chic little succulent planter.

Can you even handle these succulent planters?? Imagine the possibilities! Pink, black, yellow, those pebbles come in a gazillion colors!

I’m always amazed at where inspiration strikes. Pet store today, who knows where tomorrow. Happy Thursday!

  1. I have become obsessed with pink gravel. I recently bought some for my plants! Love what you’ve done.

    1. Why did it never dawn on me before! I love it too – so many possibilities! Thanks for stopping by Laila!

  2. Ok this is probably a totally DUH! question, but I sort of have a black thumb so I very seldome do anything with real live plants, so my question is, do you just use the pebbles in place of soil or do you just put the pebbles on top of the dirt? I’m sorry for such a silly question, but I just got my first succulent ever last week to see if I can keep it alive without killing for more than a month, lol. I live the look of succulents an plants in general, but don’t have many because of my black thumb, and even though my hubby is good when it comes to planting and growing things, he hasn’t been able to do much in that department since he got disabled in a car accident a couple years ago. Thanks for the great idea though, I will definitely get some next time I go out and hope I don’t kill my little succulent, lol.

    1. Hi Maria – Yes I just put the pebbles on top of the dirt. I also put a few larger rocks at the bottom of the cup/pot to help with draining. Succulents don’t need a lot of water. I’m definitely not the gardener in the family – that’s my husband but I’ve managed to keep the succulents alive. If I can do it, you can do it 😉

  3. I’ve been waiting for this post! Thought I’d see some gold 😉 Isn’t the pink gravel fantastic!? I want to put it in all my plant pots!! But I won’t.
    Love the container you chose for your donkey tail!

  4. I adore everything about that polka dot teacup planter! OMG. I would have never thought to use aquarium gravel like this, loooove the pink.

    1. Thank you Andrea!! I’m pretty obsessed with gold everything so the gold polka dots just made sense!! Have a great day!

  5. I finally got my hubby to plant me some succulents this weekend and remembered this post! I couldn’t find the gravel I wanted but I am decorating my home office in Kelly green, navy, gold and white so…. I got some blue rocks and partially painted them gold! I think I might have to do more and add a little more to it once everything settles in the planter. Thanks for the idea!


  6. Seriously why can I never think of something like this! I love love love this idea! I think it would look beautiful with rich red colored rocks for Christmas. I think I’m going to have to get some gravel!!! Also, I love the polka dot tea-cup. I think I’m going to have to make one of those myself! Thanks for the great ideas! 🙂

  7. I agree–ten days alone with a toddler is an eternity! I LOVE this idea–especially since you used pink pebbles! Such a cute and creative way to bring some color into the room!

  8. I love this! So cute! It would be the perfect gift! Thanks for linking it up! Pinning to our pin board.
