Transform a Plastic Organizer into a Chic Artificial Succulent Hanging Garden

Hello everyone, I hope you're doing well. Today, I want to share a simple decor idea using a Dollar Tree plastic organizer. The organizer I'm using has three compartments. 

We will be creating a hanging garden display with faux succulents. If you know me, then you know how much I love succulents. 

Honestly, I could decorate every space in my home with them. The best part is that with artificial succulents, I won't have to worry about killing them. I'll provide you with all the details on creating your own hanging garden display, and I'll include a full materials list below. Let's get started!

Faux succulent hanging garden

Materials to create Faux succulent hanging garden


  • One plastic organizer (I'm using the one with three compartments)
  • Dollar Tree wallpaper sheet
  • Wire
  • Artificial succulents
  • Hot glue
  • Pencil or pen for tracing
  • floral cutters
  • scissors
Plastic organizer, wallpaper sheet and a pen

Tracing onto the wallpaper

Begin by placing your plastic organizer on top of the wallpaper sheet. Use a pencil to trace around the organizer, but don't worry if you don't trace every section. Remember, to make extra cuts when adding the wallpaper to each compartment.

Cutting and attaching wallpaper sections

Use scissors to cut out each traced section on the wallpaper sheet. Take each cut-out section and place it into the compartments. You may find that the sections are not perfect, but that's okay. Make any necessary cuts to ensure that they fit.

To add the wallpaper sections to the organizer, remove the backing from each one, exposing the sticky backing. Place each section into its compartment and press down gently.

Adding succulents and wire

Now it's time to add the succulents to each compartment. Before adding them, use floral cutters to make any necessary cuts. Use hot glue to attach each succulent flower. If you prefer, insert a section of foam block in each compartment and add your succulent into the foam block.

Use your floral cutters to cut a section of wire. Attach the wire to the back of the organizer using a few extra wallpaper sections, clear tape, or hot glue.
