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).
Here’s what you need: (All of the supplies I found at my local Michael’s. Aka my 2nd home).
- Mason Jar
- Fake Succulents
- Twine (optional)
- Paint and a brush or sponge (I used Milk Paint)
- Hot Glue Gun
- Foam (Wreath foam for inside the mason jar. Circular, you may need to cut in half to fit in jar)
Get your mason jar and paint it any color you choose. I used white milk paint from Michaels.
I like the way Milk Paint looks when it dries. It gives it a nice rustic look, very farmhouse friendly if that’s your theme.
Get your row of succulents. We had multiple types to choose from as you can see.
Since these don’t have picks on them, we glued toothpicks to them. By now the paint should be dried.
Now you’ll need to cut the foam circle in half to fit inside the mason jar.
Now you’re ready to start placing the picks in the foam! There’s no pattern, I just started placing them all over. 🙂 The beauty of the foam, if you don’t like the placement, pick it out and replace.
Once all of the picks are placed, use moss to cover the foam. We choose this pretty sea foam blue color.
You’re almost done! YAY!
Next I used twine and burlap as decoration for each. This is optional since the mason jars look good with or without any more decoration.
Here are my final jars:
This was an, fast and easy craft. I love how they turned out! Don’t you? 🙂
