DIY: Vintage Goblet Planters

DIY: Vintage Goblet Planters

I have a mad goblet collection. It all began with a trip to the Madonna Inn in college. The hotel is infamous for many things, and their gorgeous gaudy goblets are one of them. It was there that I bought my first red goblet and I’ve been collecting colorful vintage stemware ever since. Today my collection is on hold. Collecting isn’t exactly practical when you live in a small apartment. But I recently came up with a DIY to give new purpose to my favorite vintage goblets; I turned them into planters!

Guys, I’m a bit obsessed with these. Bringing two things I love together is kind of awesome. I may have dozens of these little goblet gardens scattered around my home right now. Hint: I definitely do. For those of you who don’t have a goblession or a goblection, fear not. You’ll just need to do a little digging in your local thrift and antique stores. You’d be surprised how many lovely vintage glasses are carelessly discarded. So go get your goblets and succulents and meet me back here in five. Ready? Let’s go!

Succulent Gardens

My mom and aunt are avid gardeners and antique shoppers, and together they’ve figured out a way to combine their passions in the creation of beautiful succulent gardens. I personally love succulents because they are very easy to maintain, come in strange shapes and produce vibrant blooms. I often wonder if Dr. Seuss took inspiration from succulent gardens for his illustrations.

When planning a garden, my mom and aunt will spend hours searching antique stores for the most unique pieces; vintage eggbeaters, teapots, rusted toy trucks and garden gnomes; each intended to add a little history and playfulness to the living art they create. To them, any container can be a planter and any kitschy object can be stuck in here or there! Their open-mindedness and creativity when creating a succulent garden is really amazing and I am thrilled to have another one of their creations in my front yard.
