Easy Ways to Use Succulents Around the House


Now that the fall and winter seasons are upon us, it can feel a bit sad that we won’t be surrounded by our favorite garden flowers. One great way to bring the garden inside and make your home more attractive is to add succulents to an indoor garden. The best part is that there are so many unique and creative ways to add these plants to your home, so every style can benefit from these year-round gardens.

I found just a few unique styles to demonstrate that the possibilities are endless. You just need a few seedlings or cuttings of succulents and an interesting pot or cup to plant them in. These plants easily adapt to the shallow planters and in turn, bring style, relaxation, and positivity to any room.

Vintage Teacup Succulents

Do you love antiques or vintage style? I love this style and I think these would be an easy way to add a touch of class to any room. Simply find some cute teacups from an antique store and fill them with different varieties of succulents to create this unique arrangement. I could see this working with different cups as well if you prefer a more mix-and-match style. Use this as a table centerpiece or a shelf arrangement for an instant a touch of style.

Lantern Succulents

This is a great addition to your living room or den! Take a decorative lantern and add a few varieties of succulents to the inside. This becomes a great accent piece for the coffee table or hearth near the fireplace (but – be sure to keep it away from the heat if you have a fire.) This is a perfect suggestion for me as I have two lanterns that I was given as a gift last year. While one has a candle inside, I think adding a succulent arraignment to the other lantern will add a perfect touch of interest to my family room!
