Aren’t these just dreamy? Nothing says magic like a little teacup full of plants. These indoor container gardens are such a cute way to dress up an old teacup. They make great gifts and totally adorable party decor.
Most of these are easy to make and easy to care for – especially if you use the easiest plants to care for – succulents. All you need are vintage teacups which you could score at your local thrift store.
Let’s take a look at these dreamy Mini Teacup Gardens.

Now aren’t you just dying to make your own Teacup Planters? I know I am! Just a practical note – if you decide to make one, be sure to drill a hole or add a thin layer of rocks to the bottom. So that when you water your plant, it has a way for the water to drain away from the roots.
The care for some of these plants can differ. For example pansies need full sun, but succulents can do with partial or even low light. So pay attention to your plant care! And happy making!
