Painted Mason Jar Succulent Planter

Outdoor Decor 08.24.15
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!

    I can't believe all the negative, nasty comments on this. It is a neat idea, and with the pastel colors could be used for Easter gifts to friends.

    I find that this site "Hometalk" always seems to attract people who must just look for criticism in what others create. Who cares if you think it's not cute, pretty, the right color, or stupid. If you truly have a comment that my help others or you think

    I don't understand the rude comments! How about not commenting at all if you can't be nice! I love what you have done and I think they would liven up any space in the house.
