DIY Mason Jar Succulents

August 19, 2020 No Comments

Unlike many people, I was not born with a green thumb. Most plants tend to not live long in our house but, don’t worry, the important things like kids and pets are definitely thriving! That being said, I have found succulents to be one of the easiest plants to keep alive.

Today, I am super excited to share an easy, affordable, and fun DIY succulent project with you! In this post, I will walk you through this simple process and list/link all of the supplies you would need!

Let’s Get Started!
Supply List:

First Step: Paint Your Mason Jars

My favorite step is painting! I just love the look of how these jars turned out. I bought paint samples from Home Depot in four different colors, painted it, then sanded over the jars to rough it up a bit. After it was dry, I added twine around the edges to give it a pop.

Second Step: Fill the Bottom with Rocks

As you can see from the photo above, I simply added some river rock to the bottom of the jars to allow an area for the water to drain since I do not have holes in the bottom of the jars. I added about an inch of rock to the bottom of each jar.

Third Step: Repot Your Succulent

I bought four different types of succulents from Home Depot but I also shared some from Amazon, as well. I had to take out some of the soil from the the original pot to get it to fit into the jars. I then added some soil around the sides and top to make sure it was covered well. Finally, I added a little more river rock to the top of the jars for decoration.

Overall, this project took less than two hours, mainly because I needed some time for the jars to dry before I sanded them down. Most importantly…I found the perfect place in our house for these jars!

I purchased these cute, hexagonal shelves from Target for only $5 each and have struggled to find decor for it. These mason jars are perfect! Check it out:

I hope you enjoy this project and I would love to see your spin on it, too! Feel free to share in the comments below!
