Hanging Succulent Burlap Planter

I had the sewing machine out a little while ago and decided to make some hanging succulent burlap planters.  I love natural and rustic textures and knew the jute webbing would come in super handy for this easy project!


Burlap or Jute Webbing
Heavy Duty Thread
Small Decorative River Rock



The webbing is is 3 1/2 inches wide and  perfect for this project, If you are looking for something larger you will have to go with regular burlap and make your cuts accordingly.

Decide how long you want the planter to be and cut the webbing based on the size you want.  My planter is 9 inches in length so I cut a 18 inch strip.

Fold burlap piece in half

Sew the side seams together

Add the twine on each side and sew them in place

Place the gravel at the bottom of the holder, about 1/3 full followed by the potting soil to fill the holder about 1/2 way up.

Add sprigs of succulents and hang where it can get a few hours of sunlight each day.

This took me about 10 minutes, from here you could add so much more to the bag.  Think embellishing with stamps, stencils, a mini front pocket, get creative and have fun with it!

  1. So cute! Question: do the succulents actually LIVE in the soil? So, I assume if they root in the soil you would need to water now and then? How? I can’t wait to make my own, now! My mom has quite a few succulents and so I can just break some off for my burlap planter! Thank you so much for the inspiration 🙂
