Simple Succulent Pallet Planter Using Baking Tins

This past weekend I started setting up our backyard terrace. I had a few days off, so lots of time, although I totally underestimated the cleaning up part! Once everything was ready to be set up, I got the idea to use one of my pallets as a simple succulent pallet planter using baking tins. You know I’m such a chicken a bit lazy, when it comes to using power tools and am avoiding them when I can. Well, this planter turned out really cute, and the best: no power tools were needed!

Simple Succulent Pallet Planter Using Baking Tins

What you’ll need:

~ pallet

~ baking tins

~ white latex paint for pallet

~ white chalky finish paint for baking tins

~ succulents & soil

~ metal bucket planters

~ small rocks for decor

Paint pallet with white latex paint and baking tins with white chalky finish paint. I used chalky paint for the baking tins, as it adheres really well and doesn’t chip. I gave them one coat of paint each on the outside and inside except for the bottom.

Plant succulents in baking tins and decorate with little rocks and place baking tins into pallet. I used 4 baking tins and put metal pots on the bottom part also filled with succulents. That’s it! So easy!

    I’m right with you when it comes to power tools; I avoid them at all costs. This gives me a great idea of what to do with the baking tins I no longer use. Thank you for sharing with us this week at Celebrate Your Story, have a great week and a Happy Holiday.

    I love this, Katrin! My sister-in-law just asked me today if I had any ideas for a pallet she wants to add to her front porch and I think this would be perfect! Pinned & sharing 🙂

    Dear Katrin,
    this is such an ingenious idea! And you’ve made it look sooo lovely. I’d rather practise my “green thumb” before I make anything alike (err – before I ask my husband to bring a pallet home from work). It would look great in the garden too, wouldn’t it?

      Thank you so much Marjan, I don’t have a green thumb at all and they’re doing great so far 😉 It would look great in a garden I think!!! Have a lovely day friend 🙂

    Kreative and klever too! This pallet is the best plant stand ever – love it! Using a little paint & ingenuity you made the simple spectacular. Succulents are among my favorite plants and your planter is the perfect home for them. Thank-you for another delightful post, as always.

    Oh Katrin I love what you did with the baking tins. They fit perfectly inside the pallet to make such a lovely garden. And I also like the part about not using power tools. It is such a piety look all crisp and clean, perfect for the summertime. .

      Thanks so much Mary, you know how I like looking for the easy and quick way out 😉 and I’m quite happy with this:)

    That’s just beautiful Katrin. Succulents and pallets go so well together especially if they’ve been styled by someone like you who just has the ability to make everything look like it belongs in a glossy magazine. I love this idea so much. I think I need to come to you for styling tips and maybe I can help you not to be scared of power tools 😉
