DIY Succulent Brick Planters

Natural and durable, a stash of used bricks provides a wonderful contrast to elegant succulent plants. Created by Christopher and Kelly Harris, the display looks great alone or paired with a votive and becomes a star centerpiece in any living space--indoors or out. Full Instructions at ReadyMade. Or Skip the elbow grease and order bricks via Succulent Love Designs.

Variations:

Use blocks of reclaimed wood instead of bricks (but be careful with your candles and perhaps consider going with LED tea lights).
Try another low-maintenance and slow-growing plant, such as a cactus.
