Since this season is all about laid back, on-a-whim entertaining, our new partnership with Solo Cup couldn’t have been timed more perfectly. And when the brand challenged us to create a DIY using one of their products, it didn’t take long to come up with a concept that’s as perfect for hostess gifting as it is for Cinco de Mayo centerpieces. Want to see how we transformed the classic red cup into a great summer entertaining accessory? Keep reading to learn how to make your own succulent planters!

  1. Turn cups upside down and spray. Allow to dry.
  2. Use hot glue to attach trip to top of cup as pictured.
  3. Slip succulents container into cup.
  4. Cover soil with marble nuggets.

    Leave it to Chanel to make something we’ve all seen a million times feel so fresh and new! And I just thought of this, but you could totally “recycle” SOLO cups for these post-party, instead of trashing them. Adorable AND eco-friendly!

      Yes! I always hate throwing out solo cups – feels so wasteful, but I can never think of a legit reason to keep them. This is brilliant!
