Everyone loves Mason Jars. Everyone also loves Succulents! SO…I figured, I should combine the two to make these adorable and easy Mason Jar Succulents! Except these succulents are the easy kind. By easy I mean fake. No need to water or care for these babies. (Which is exactly what I need since I’m known to be a notorious plant killer).
Get your mason jar and paint it any color you choose.  I used white milk paint from Michaels.  
(Example of the moss i used)
Here's what the mason jar will look like after you paint it. I used a mason jar cup! (see the handle)
After painting the jar, let the paint dry.

Use a foam roll, and insert it into the mason jar.
Purchase fake succulents....and grab some toothpicks.
Use a hot glue gun and glue a toothpick into each succulent.
Insert each toothpick into he foam roll, inside the cup. Have fun finding a pattern and playing with succulent placement.
Once you're done, add the moss to the top (optional) to cover any foam that is visible. There are many moss colors so choose one you like! I also added twine and burlap ribbon for extra decoration!

Enjoy in your home! (And never worry about watering!)
