Rae Dunn Repurpose
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we have a lot of Rae Dunn dishes. For some reason, I just love them and I keep getting them as gifts. It’s a cycle. And one I kind of enjoy. But some of my favorite pieces aren’t living their life to the fullest. So I decided to do a little Rae Dunn repurpose project and get these pieces a new job!
The best part about this Rae Dunn upcycle project is that I spent almost nothing on it. I mean, yes, I had to buy the succulents, but they’re worth it. And I already had potting soil and rocks on hand. Then the project was about done. So fast!
If you’re ready to get your Rae Dunn dishes living their best life, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Rae dunn Upcycle Ideas
- I love succulents because they’re genuinely hard to kill. I know they seem a little expensive, in comparison to other plants, but if I’m going to kill the other, but these I can keep alive indefinitely, it’s money well spent. LOL!
- If you don’t have any Rae Dunn dishes, to make this fun upcycle project, be sure to check the thrift store. I saw some very cute items there that would work.
How Do I Make this Rae Dunn Repurpose?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- Old Rae Dunn Items
- Potting Soil
- For the Rae Dunn candle dish, once the candle itself had been burned down pretty low, it actually just popped right out! I used warm water soap and a dry eraser worked really well to remove the black residue!
- For the bowl, I just washed it.
- For both Rae Dunn repurpose projects, I placed the rocks in the bottom of the container, then added the majority of the potting soil, then tucked the succulents in the top of the container and filled-in with additional potting soil.
