    Create a succulent container garden in a wine bottle by filling the bottle with succulent soil, adding 3-5 succulents, and topping with dressing and tools.

Awesome! Time to get to the fun part!


You should begin by mapping out the arrangement. It’s a good idea to put the succulents in their desired spots while they are still in their pots, so that you can shift them around without making too much of a mess.

Remove soil

Once you have the design in mind, it’s time to get your succulents ready. Carefully take out the succulents from their container and shake off any excess soil. Even if the roots come off while you’re doing this, it’s OK – your succulent will still be able to thrive. Additionally, this potting tray is great for indoor use!

Fill the planter with soil

Fill your planter with enough soil so that it almost reaches the top. This will give you enough space to place your succulents without overflowing, while also preventing the need to add more soil later.

You can make sure that the soil in the pot remains secure by filling the neck all the way up with dirt. If the bottle doesn’t have a cork or stopper, you can either add one or fill the neck up to the point where the soil won’t come out when you pour water in.

I suggest that succulents be planted in a soil that allows for good drainage, particularly if they are in a glass container, to avoid root rot.

Add other large succulents

At this stage, you should consider introducing any other large or eye-catching succulents.

Fill in the rest

Include miniature succulents to adorn the planter and complement the main feature.

Add top dressing

Complete your flower arrangement by topping it off with a layer of top dressing. This will give the arrangement a polished and professional look while helping to keep the soil in place.


Wait a couple of days after your arrangement is finished before watering it. This will give the roots enough time to heal. Once the two to three days have passed, begin to water it as you would any other established arrangement.

The brilliant design of Looking Sharp Cactus’ planters includes a drainage hole, making watering and maintenance a breeze!

Place your arrangement in a spot that receives ample, indirect sunlight to help it stay neat and tidy.

These wine bottle arrangements will be a fantastic addition to any space. Perfect for a wedding table centerpiece, as a window display, or a special present, they will be sure to make an impression.
