I made these cute vases as a gift for a friend. But I didn't stop there I figured why not use the lids as well to make a cute magnet succulents for my home.

Let's start with the Mason jar vases.


You will need two mason jars, any greenery or flower arrangement to your liking, and white chalk paint. 👍

Start painting your mason jars I paint the inside as well as the outside. Just so you don't see the paintbrush streaks on the glass.

This is what the first coat should look like after you paint the inside and the outside.

Depending on how thick you want it just keep adding coats, I only did two coats.


Also side note after it's dry you can also get sandpaper to distress it.

And finally add your flowers are greenery to your vases and you're all done with that part.

Okay now on to the succulent magnets.

you will need a hot glue gun, a couple of magnets, and any succulent or flower to your liking

Next we're going to glue the magnets on to the top of the lid.

I did all the magnets first so I could let it dry and set.

Then once those are dry you are all set to glue your succulents or flowers inside the lid.

And your all done 😊

Now you have two cute vases and two magnets. So cheap and it's a great way to add some greenery to your home.

      The 99cent store has those mugs. I know because I bought a bunch of them. I like this idea. I could give these as gifts and get rid of all those mugs I over bought.
