Supplies Needed

Preparing the Magic Pots

  • Use the white paint on the inside and outside of the terra-cotta pot and let dry
  • Draw out 4 leaf-like shapes on your green felt and cut out


  • Draw a unicorn horn on your gold card-stock and cut out
  • Glue the base of the horn close to the top on the inside of the pot
  • Glue the felt leaves to the sides of the horn
  • Use the flowers to make a flower crown at the base of your horn in front of the leaves
  • With your permanent marker, draw the eyes about halfway up on the pot. Don’t forget the lashes!
  • Dip your finger into the pink paint to give your unicorn some blushy cheeks on the sides of the pot


Adding the Succulents

  • Add your succulent and cacti soil to the pot about 3/4 full
  • Separate succulent from the pot by pushing in on all sides to loosen soil, then remove the entire succulent with the root ball attached
  • Place the succulent directly into the soil


  • Repeat for all succulents you add
  • Take a photo! Show off your #UnicornSucculentPlanter and tag us #Sucstu on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter so we can see how it turned out!


Aftercare Instructions

  • Succulents require bright, indirect light — about 6–8 hours a day.
  • Water sparingly using spray bottle every 7–14 days. Only water when the soil is dry and let drain completely. When in doubt, don’t water!
