Painted Mason Jar Succulent Planter

$9.00
Easy

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!

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!

    I would love to start a succulent garden. I am slightly handicapped, so I need something easy, but I don't know how to start. I love the minis. Can you help me or steer me in the right direction?☘
