Painted Mason Jar Succulent Planter

Mason Jars 2 days ago
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! #SpringColors #MothersDay
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!
Create a fun, springy planter in just a few easy steps!

    Love the site, don't always go crazy over some things, but even many of those will give me an idea as to how I could change it to fit my decor. Since my decor is so different than most anyone else's. You don't walk into many homes or apartments and see

      Caroline Hargrove - I love getting ideas from others on this site! I don't always love the exact project, but it sparks an idea of something I can create with my own twist! We all have our own individual tastes! :)

    How is drainage? I love the idea, might be cute as candle hollers too, just paint all the way up. When I was young we used to use these colors and paint patterns on tall glasses then we put candles in them.

      Olwen - that's such a great idea! I was thinking, really, you could do these in just about any glass container similar to this shape! :)

    I love this idea, and I agree that succulents are about the easiest houseplants, but after year or so of trial and error I have realized that they thrive when you leave them alone, almost to the point of neglect!! My happiest ones are high on a shelf and

    I have seen succulents in just little rocks and water. Wouldn't that work here too?

      Barbara Coombs - I have no idea, but I would assume so. Like I said, I'm not so great with plants. I just thought this would work, so I tried it out. :)

    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

    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
