Drake’s DIY: Beer Can Succulent Planters
If there’s anything we’ve learned…
… during this, the era of Pinterest, succulents pair well with everything. EVERYTHING. We’d be remiss to not get in on this cactus revival so we’ve put together a crafty craft beer DIY for all you plant lovers out there. Special thanks to HR Coordinator Debbie for teaching us how to make these sharp pieces, perfect for those in need of a little extra household (or office) greenery.
Succulents and cacti don’t need much water. In this respect, they’re fantastic because you can exert minimal effort and the plant will thrive. However, they need proper drainage to regulate their soil moisture levels. Take your “something sharp” and put a hole about the size of a pencil eraser in the bottom of your beer can. We made a pilot hole with a thumbtack then went to town on it with a sensible wine bottle opener.
Cover the top of your soil with colorful rocks for optimal prettiness, if you choose. If not, voila! You’ve got a sharp new craft beer-inspired oxygen creator to fill the small void in your heart from not having children… Or something like that.
This is a great DIY for…
…beginners or advanced crafters. If you’re of the “gotta catch ’em all” mentality, we recommend trying this will all our one-off can releases and theming your plants to each brew! As always, tag us in all your craft beer crafting with #drakesDIY and @drakesbeer
