Small Planters For Mini Plants

Cool Idea: Votives as Planters

Perfect for adorning windowsills or even a crowded desktop, small plants like mini cacti require little space and almost as little care. For a potting vessel that trumps the hideous plastic versions, hit up the candle section of your favorite home store. Votives are not only the perfect size, but they're much more stylish than the average terra-cotta upgrade and can be found at affordable price points. I scooped up my cacti at Home Depot, but the votive pairings are seemingly endless. Since votives don't have drainage, be sure to put a few pebbles in the container before planting!

Keep reading to see four votives that are practically made for planting!

  • Mercury Candleholders ($5): I couldn't resist testing the waters with these beauties. They come in a variety of textures and add just the right amount of sparkle.
  • Mache Candleholder ($3): What looks like papier-maché is actually hand-sculpted porcelain — perfect for modernists!
  • Framework Votive ($10): Galvanized steel and glass lend a mini terrarium feel to this votive.
  • Alabaster Glass Votive Holders ($28 for a set of four): I'd try this neon-hued votive set in a space that lacks color.
