DIY Oui Yogurt Jar Project

Do you ever buy Oui Yogurts from the grocery store? If not, you should. First off, it is delicious yogurt. Second, it comes in these cute little glass jars, which of course, I end up saving. My stash started piling up, so I figured I needed to use them for some sort of project. I came up with this DIY Oui Yogurt Jar Project idea, and will be giving them as teacher gifts this year. You can make them for yourself, or give them as a gift. Either way, they are pretty cute.

Step 1, Clean Jars and Take Off Label…

The first thing I did was clean out the jars really well (after eating it, of course…lol) and peel off the labels. I used some Goo Be Gone and a razor blade scraper tool to get rid of any residue from the labels.

Step 2, Spray Paint…

Next, I spray painted the jars. I used white because we had some on hand. You can use any color you want, or use craft paint to paint the jars.

Step 3, Add a Succulent

I found the perfect sized succulents at Lowes. They are 2 1/4 inches high. I was able to just yank them out of the plastic pots they came in and stick them right into the Oui jar.

Step 4, Create A Label for the Jars…

I had some Round Avery Labels (size 22807) left over from when I made this lip balm. They happen to be the perfect size for the jars. I logged onto my avery.com account. Once logged in you can do all sorts of fun stuff. I just picked the correct size labels, picked a template, entered the words I wanted, and printed them out. I wrote ‘thanks for helping me grow‘. That seemed appropriate since I plan to give these to my kids teachers. Cute, right?

Step 5, Add Decorative Twine (optional)…

Lastly, and this is optional, I found this fun bakers twine at the Dollar Tree, and added some to the lip of the jar. Or you could add regular twine instead.

That’s it! This is a very easy project that can be altered to fit your needs and taste. Aren’t they cute?

    These are adorable! I actually made some similar to this [and yes, this yogurt is delicious]! I did have a problem with drainage, since there is no hole in the bottom. I used some small rocks/marbles and placed them at the bottom to assist with draining the roots, but some worked and some not. Any ideas on better drainage without a hole for drainage? Thank you!!

      You can buy masonry drill bits. They should drill a hole in the glass without breaking it.

      I haven’t used them on glass, but they do a great job on ceramic and most other kinds of pots.

    I love your idea!

    i merely peel the labels off then use

    a bit or olive oil to clean residue if any left

    There now smaller jars too

    Happy upcycling!
