DIY in a Day brings you step-by-step instructions for easy projects that will spruce up your space — within 24 hours (or less!).
Houseplants are definitely having a moment — we just can't seem to get enough of our leafy friends. From our living room to our dining room to our home office, we're filling our homes with more and more greenery, which means one thing: We need more planters! Today we're showing you how to make a raised planter from a couple of IKEA bowls that would make a great table centerpiece.
For this tutorial, we used succulents to create an easy-to-care for display, but during the holiday season, this planter would look equally cute filled with some festive greenery like holly or poinsettia.
Wash and wipe down the bases of both bowls to remove any dust and dirt.
Apply a generous amount of glue to the base of the Rundlig bowl.
Place the brass Utvandig bowl onto the glue.
You can place something heavy into the bowl to weigh it down while the glue dries.
Once dry, flip the planter over. It's now ready to fill.
For a decorative finish, cover the soil with stones or river pebbles.
If you're looking for a more festive display, we love anything with berries, but aromatic plants (like rosemary) are another cute option for the holiday season!
