This affordable and easy-to-create planter will impress guests

Plants relieve stress, according to a study published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information. Perhaps that's why it's imperative to create a relaxing environment that includes plants, both at work and at home. While it may seem challenging to find the space and time required to care for a large plant, small succulents thrive with very little maintenance.
Rather than place multiple small planters throughout the home, consider creating a stacked terracotta planter. Watering plants will become a breeze⁠ — this simple, elegant DIY project keeps plants together in one place⁠. Guests will certainly admire the unique display of succulents in the painted pots.
