I’m always on the lookout for cool planters, especially as we head into winter. I, Erin, like to stock up on them to help combat the dreary winter blues. The inspiration for this DIY mid century modern planter came from this Scandinavian home, which has a cool, sculptural vessel tucked quietly into the corner of the living room.
Its minimalist, mid century goodness is what caught my eye. I knew it’d be the perfect home for my (currently homeless) mini palm plant.
Any guesses what it’s made from? Hint: it just might be as simple as two stacked bowls. It definitely adds big style to any space though, right?!..
Industrial Strength Glue (like Gorilla Glue)
Small Rocks (If your plant requires draining.)
Plant + extra potting soil if needed
Use a cloth dampened (with water) to wet the inside rim on the underside of the larger bowl. Adhesives like Gorilla Glue bond better when the surface has been dampened. Then apply a generous ring of adhesive to the rim of the larger bowl.
Place the smaller bowl right-side-up on top of the larger bowl, so the bottoms of both bowls make contact. Allow to dry for a few hours.
If your plant requires drainage, you’ll want to add a few small rocks to the bottom of the vessel before planting your plant.
Last but not least, transfer your plant!
Pretty easy, right?! I’m super excited about coming up with this inexpensive alternative. If you give this project a try, make sure to share a photo on Instagram and tag #sugarandcloth so we can cheer on your success!
