The holidays are coming! The holidays are coming! And with them comes gift giving. Are you ready? I am not one of those people who shop all year long to be ready when the time comes, but I do like to put a little forethought into gifts that I can make myself, like these mini-watering can succulents my husband and I put together over the weekend.
I think DIY gifts are great to make and even more wonderful to receive. Bonus: they can be quite affordable! Tell me these don’t make for a great hostess gift? They are so cute I can hardly bear to part with them. Also, it took very little money and time to make these. If you like them, I HIGHLY suggest you make a bunch to have ready for whenever you need a little something to gift to someone special.
You don’t even need directions because it’s so darned easy, but here’s how we did it.

Mini Watering Can Succulents
- Mini watering cans (we got ours at Daiso for $1.50 each, you could also use little tin buckets)
- Potting Soil
- Small decorative rocks (optional)
- Something to puncture the bottom of the cans with (a hammer and nail or a sharp trowel)
- We started off by puncturing some drainage holes on the bottom on the mini watering cans. We did it with the help of a hammer and the tip of a trowel. The metal isn’t very think so it’s pretty easy and you don’t need much force.
- Once you have finished making the drainage holes, flip the watering can over and add a bit of potting soil to the inside of the watering can, then place your succulent in it and add in more soil as needed.
- You can then add some decorative rocks to the top if you like, but you certainly don’t have to.
- Water your newly potted succulent and then oooh and aaah over the cuteness you’ve created.
