Who doesn't love a good mason jar makeover? And when it involves a succulent or three then it's right on trend too. Like these succulicious mason storage jars we made a few weeks ago for our holiday home.

Not only are they trendy with their succulent tops but they’re also food safe and easy to clean too. Plus the paint is peel and scratch resistant.

What you need to make the succulicious mason jars:




  1. Clean empty mason jars
  2. Spray paint
  3. Faux succulents
  4. E6000 glue
  5. Small white pebbles
  6. Drill

Spray the outside of the mason jars and the lids in the color of your choice. We chose a beautiful, glossy white for ours. It kinda reminds me of milk glass don't you think?

Once the paint dries, drill a hole in the center of the lid. Glue a few small pebbles all around the hole.

And then glue the faux succulents on. If your succulents have long stems like ours, you can trim them down a little first with a wire cutter before gluing them inside the hole. I wanted to make very sure those succulents would stay put when people take the lids off

Let the glue dry and your succulicious mason jars are ready to be used store as storage. We put coffee, tea and sugar in ours.

    Great idea that I will be totally using. But I just want quite sure why you need to drill a hole in the top of the lid?

      Hi Eric, I wanted to make sure that the succulents would have enough places to grip onto when they were glued in place. It's not clear in the one picture but the stems were cut to about 1/2 inch from the faux succulent and the glue was added to the stem and the bottoms of the succulents. Maybe it was an overkill, I just wanted to make very sure that the succulents didn't come unglued with continual opening and closing of the lids

    is there any reason real succulents couldnt be used? they need very little water/drainage

    Where did you get those decorated mason jars, not the ball jars?

      I think I have some jelly jars and salsa jars with a similar look.
