Painted Mason Jar Succulent Planter

42K Views
I love succulents! Mostly because they're about the only plant I can keep alive in my house! So, I decided to do a fun spring version of a succulent planter to brighten up the house while it's still a bit gray outside. I was inspired by the springy colors of my daughter's sidewalk chalk and oddly enough, I had all the coordinating craft paint colors on hand, so it worked out perfectly!
Cost: $9.00 Difficulty: Easy

These succulent planters are so easy to put together. I had everything on had except the succulents, which I picked up at Home Depot for a few bucks each.

I started by painting the bottoms of my jars with two coats of craft paint. I then added a little river rock and dirt inside.

Once the dirt was in, I pulled the succulents out of their containers, plopped them in the jars, and settled them in with a little more dirt.

The succulent planters are so bright and cheery on my dining room shelf! They remind me that spring flowers (outside) will be here shortly!

    We once received a round glass table top from someone ( the table had broken). We placed it on top of a 10 gl. aquarium with some gravel dirt and sand and succulents. used cabinet door bumpers on the corners of the aquarium to allow air in. Just a little spritz once a month and they lasted for years. It made a great coffee table.

    I think these are so cute, the color of Easter and spring. Like some people have said you can use your own colors and expand this really cute idea. I haven't read the negative remarks and I don't want to, but I do want to comment. We are here because we want to learn and we want to see the wonderful things people are doing in their homes and gardens, it is a continued learning experience, and we enjoy the company. What makes anyone think that we want to hear their negative, rude remarks. Did your mama's not teach you any manners or kuth? If you don't like something just move on and keep your negative thoughts to yourself.
