How to make a DIY unicorn planter

What you need:

  • Mini terracotta planters/pots (it’s really important that these are terracotta planters as paint won’t adhere well to other materials)
  • your favorite succulent along with soil
  • acrylic paint (or other craft paint) – white and pink
  • hot glue (strong craft glue works well too, but a glue gun is recommended)
  • drag
  • permanent black marker
  • paint brush
  • small tissue paper flowers
  • green cardboard or green felt
  • gold glitter cardboard

How to Make a Magical DIY Succulent Planter

Step 1

Start by painting your terracotta planter white. You will need to apply a few coats of paint, this will depend a little on the pigment of the paint (different brands will require more or less coats), on average 2-3 coats should be enough. Make sure the paint is completely dry before you continue.

Step 6

Sketch out your eyes with a pencil. When you are happy with how they look, fill them in with a black marker. You can draw blush on your cheeks with your fingers, simply dip them in pink paint and dip your fingers into the clay pot.
