Anthropologie Mug Planter

6 May

I’ve been on a succulent kick lately, purchasing a number of plants and dotting them all around our apartment. As I mentioned in a previous post, succulents are a great no hassle plant for individuals suffering from a brown thumb. They are also incredibly inexpensive. On recent trip to Whole Foods, I stumbled upon some succulent varieties I hadn’t seen before and decided to buy one. After bringing it home, I realized I didn’t have a pot to put it in. I love the use of unconventional vessels as planters, so I decided to plant the succulent in my favorite monogrammed anthropologie mug!

The mug planter turned out quite beautiful and whimsical. It would make a really great housewarming or “thinking of you” gift, especially considering you can personalize it by matching the letter to the recipient’s name.

Side note: I have been hitting up a number of local rummage sales. Among the great finds were two anthropologie mugs – 40 cents each! Such a steal (they are usually $8.00/ea.)! BTW, rummage sales have ruined me for normal shopping – if I have to pay more than 50 cents, I really don’t like it! 😉

Do you like to use unconventional items as planters?

xoxo, Andi

    I have such a brown thumb – I love the unconventional planters – but I always think I need some drainage. The succulents would work well – I might try some.

    i think old teapots, or new ones, once they have lost their lids, make great planters. these mugs look very smart, great job oxo

      I totally agree! I love putting small buds in teacups, but haven’t used a teapot for a plant pot yet. I’ll put that on my list. 🙂
