How to Make a Gazebo Succulent Hanging Planter |

On Thursday it was a beautiful day until a storm started brewing bringing 50-mile-per-hour winds.  It was the middle of the afternoon, but it was so dark it looked like evening.  The sky looked kind of creepy but beautiful as well.  I was hunkered down out in my workroom (which was formerly my guest house) working on a couple of projects.  The wind was howling outside, but I continued working away knowing it would soon blow over.

The skies cleared on Friday, so I was able to finish this project.

Supplies Used (affiliate links included to help you find the products I used):

Wood Gazebo Birdfeeder (I got mine at Hobby Lobby, using a 40% coupon, of course.)

Dixie Belle Kudzu Chalk Finish Paint

Dixie Belle Daisy Chalk Finish Paint

Dixie Belle Satin Clear Coat

Foam Paintbrushes  (I buy them in bulk really cheap.)

My original plan was to leave the roof just stained wood and paint the sides two colors, but the white spots you see are glue which didn’t take the stain.  So I changed my plan and painted the roof green and the sides yellow.

I did two coats of each paint color, letting it dry between coats.  It was really hot outside, so the paint dried super fast.

I sealed it with satin clear coat, then added potting soil and planted the hens and chicks inside.

If the plants get too large or start reducing chicks too quickly, I can just move the plant to another planter and use it as a bird feeder, which was its original intended use.

  1. What a cute hanging planter!
    We had a storm come out of nowhere Thursday, also. Winds 70+ miles per hour. Knocked out the electricity and “kindly” rearranged my porch-taking a few things on a whirlwind journey.
    So glad to hear all is okay and there was no damage.

    I love your succulent planter. I don’t think I would have thought of using a bird house for a planter. I like the color combination, too. I plan to make one for myself. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Now that is just too cute.

  4. Cute as a bug’s ear, Angie! I love it! I might have to look for something similar. I don’t shop at Hobby Lobby because I don’t agree with their politics, but I bet there’s something similar out there.

    Storms out in the country are a different experience than in the city because of the wide open vistas to observe them in. The clouds are panoramic and the lightening much more visible. I remember when I lived at home on my parents’ farm looking out across the fields and watching storms. Awesome and sometimes scary.

    Happy Fourh!

  5. Such a fun and unique planter! Great housewarming gift idea.
