DIY Driftwood Planter

Driftwood can be a beautiful décor piece on its own as it offers a natural look while also being stylish, but it can be so much more! Today we’re showing you how to turn a piece of driftwood into a planter. Note – this would work for any dried piece of wood, not just driftwood.


  • Driftwood (with gaps for plants)
  • Drill
  • Fine wire mesh
  • Peat moss
  • Succulents


  1. At the bottom of each gap or groove you intend to fill with soil, drill a small drainage whole and place your fine mesh over it. Keep in mind how you will position it once done.
  2. Fill the rest up with soil and press down so it’s firm.
  3. Fill each gap with small succulent plants.
  4. Now simply put it in the desired location and admire.
