Succulent Letterpress-Tray Planter
Plant your own container garden—with succulents like jade plant, aloe vera, and burro's tail—by upcycling wood into the style of a vintage letterpress tray.
This idea comes from our friend Kara Whitten of A Kailo Chic Life. A letterpress drawer is a thin wooden tray with compartments, which store letter stamps that were once used in a printing press for relief printing. Although it's something of a bygone era, these trays are commonly found at flea markets and antique sales.
Create your own vintage-style letterpress tray from paint stir sticks and wood stain, then fill it with succulents for a unique centerpiece. Within a few months of caring for your succulent letterpress tray (to insure proper rooting), you can glue peat moss around the soil onto the tray edges and hang your tray planter on a wall for a vertical succulent display.
