Upcycle them.”][social_warfare]Hey hey! If you’ve followed my home renovations for a while, you know that we’ve replaced nearly every single light fixture in this place! The old ones just weren’t our style (that’s the only diplomatic way to say it). And because light fixtures can be expensive, we’ve made a ton of DIY lights, like this DIY bentwood pendant and this DIY wood bead chandelier.

While making DIY light fixtures seemed to come easily to us, we were never sure what to do with the old light fixtures. We sold some, and donated lots to the Habitat Restore. But recently, Joe came up with a FABULOUS idea for our old flush mount ceiling lights. He suggested we make DIY planters for succulents with them and I fell in love with the idea!

OMG! These DIY planters are gorgeous and I never, ever would have thought of this upcycling idea. So smart!

These DIY planters for succulents don’t require a detailed tutorial :) You simply remove the globes from the electrical housing, and fill them up with some dirt and plant your succulents.

We planted some cacti and an aloe plant.

Since we just mist the plants to keep them alive, it’s not problematic that the planters don’t have drainage holes. That’s why these DIY planters are perfect for succulents. Just check out how fun they are?! (And before you ask, that cute pink planter came from Ikea).

Even if you don’t have old, flush mount light fixtures from your old house, you can find them for next to nothing at thrift stores and salvage stores!
