6 Best Marble Planters for Succulents

Robert Idell Robert Idell on

Marble was all the rage in 2017 and still is today, and we totally understand why! Marble countertops and floors are to die for (not literally though).

They’re modern, elegant, and luxurious… we can’t wait until we can afford to tile our whole house with marble!

But for now, we’re celebrating our love of marble by writing this post about our favorite marble succulent planters. We’re even going to show you a cool DIY planter as a bonus so that you can make it at home if you’re on a budge. It’s made with marble contact paper just to give you a slight preview.

Without further ado, let’s jump into the post!

Geometric Marbled Ceramic Pots & Planters

Geometric marble ceramic pots and planters

These faux marble planters have a geometric diamond pattern that really stands out! The texture of these planters combined with their faux marble design makes them look a lot like rocks.

We love the earthy, natural vibe of these planters, and the unique colors they come in. A lot of planters on this list were designed to mimic white carrara marble, but marble comes in a lot of other colors, too. This set of four planters incorporates some of those other colors, like brown, grey and green.

These pots have drainage holes, which make them perfect for succulents. Succulents pretty much need to be put in pots that have drainage holes because they’re so sensitive to overwatering. If they sit in water, their roots will rot and they’ll die. That won’t happen with these planters, though, so you can rest easy!

They come in a set of four and are available for just $17.99, which is an unreal value! Go and snag these up before the seller realizes they’ve made a mistake with their pricing!

Colorful Ceramic Succulent Planters

Green and blue marble planters

If you like color, then these are the succulent planters for you! You’ll get four marbled planters if you buy this set—one green, one blue, one pink and one grey. The bright colors will really compliment your colored succulents!

These planters are about two inches tall and three inches wide, so they’re the perfect petite planters for arrangements of small succulents like Echeverias and Haworthias, too.

Each planter has a drainage hole, so you won’t have to worry about your plants sitting in water. They also come with nice wooden trays that will keep any water that drains out of your pots contained. The trays are a big plus because they’ll prevent your furniture from getting water stains!

These planters are so cute that we don’t blame you if you buy more than one set—we almost did! Each set of four is only $13.99, so go ahead and treat yourself!

Marbled Terracotta Pot

We think that this marbled terracotta pot from Urban Outfitters is adorable! It has all of the rustic charm of a terracotta pot with some extra flair. The classic grey and white marble design really elevates this terracotta pot and gives it an elegant feel that you’ll love!

This pot only has a three inch opening, so it’s best for your small succulents. It already has a drainage hole, so you won’t need to break out a drill and make one yourself. Best of all, this pot is only $5.00… what a bargain! (Sometime’s it goes on sale for $4.00 too!)

Ceramic Faux Marble Succulent Pot with Stand

We cannot get over this set of faux marble planters! They have a beautiful black and white marble design with metal accents that make them look super classy and sleek.

This set contains one small, one medium, and one large pot, which makes it great for succulents of all sizes!

The metal stands come in a few different colors—black, white, and gold. We love the way that the glossy ceramic marble looks with the shiny gold hardware, but the black and white stands are great choices, too! They both have a more matte finish than the gold, so they make the planters look more modern. We love the way that the black stand brings out the black marble details in the pot and contrasts with the bright white ceramic!

This set of three ceramic pots is just $69.99. We think that they’re a great deal because they come with stands, too! Don’t let the price scare you at first, take a look at them and you’ll understand that you’re getting a great deal.

Ball Shaped Faux Marble Planter

We think that this planter is one of the most striking ones on the list! It almost looks like a ball or a globe with its tall, curved ceramic sides. It has a beautiful faux marble finish. The marble design streaks up and down the sides of the pot and really emphasizes its curvy shape.

We think that this stunning contemporary pot would make a beautiful centerpiece for your coffee or dining room table. It’s one of the biggest pots on this list, so it will fit quite a few succulents. Load it up with your favorite plants, and put a few colored succulents in there, too. They’ll really pop against the white ceramic sides of this pot!

DIY Marble Planter

Marble contact paper

You can turn pots you already have into marble masterpieces by picking up some marble contact paper. Contact paper is super easy to apply to tin cans or any other round object that you want to turn into a gorgeous faux marble planter!

You don’t even need glue to make this! The only supplies you’ll need are a craft knife, a tape measure, a tin can, and of course, marble contact paper. When cutting this marble contact paper we found that the best option is to use this x-acto knife to get the best clean cut possible, plus it’s not expensive at all.

Measure the length and width of your can using an easy to use flexible measuring tape like this using your tape measure so that you know exactly how much contact paper to cut. Then, use the craft knife to cut the contact paper according to your measurements. Use a straightedge while you’re cutting to make sure that you get the cleanest lines.

Wrap the contact paper you just cut around your whole tin can. Make sure that you wrap the contact paper tightly to prevent air bubbles from forming. Use a handy credit card or gift card in order to get those air bubbles out.

You’re all done! Wasn’t that easy? Now go fill your beautiful, brand new pot with plants!


If you didn’t like any of the planters above here’s a another bonus 3 that I found to be good runner ups! They’re also not too expensive, just the right bang for your buck, and succulent. Marble planters with gold stands, red and blue colored marbled planters and a square marble planter.

We know that you probably can’t pick, but which one of these amazing pots is your favorite? We love the set of four geometric planters the most! Let us know which one you’re going to buy in the comments section below.
