These cool colorful cone planters are designed as a summer display. The supplies are styrofoam cones, scalpel, wooden skewers, paint, dirt, symmetrical succulents, string, hot glue guns. Use your scalpel to carve out a well in the middle of the base of the cone. Take your wooden skewer and push it through the bottom of the cone to make a drainage hole. Then push it through the top four times to make a hole for the string. Paint. String the cones by tying knots in the ends through the holes and secure with a dollop of glue. Plant your succulents. If you’re not in a rush to get them hanging, leave them for a couple of weeks to take root like any normal vertical garden tutorial. Continue reading the tutorial here.
