I can’t believe spring is finally here! I’ve been spending every possible moment outside with my little girls now that it’s finally warm. I felt so bad for all the time we had to spend inside during this crazy winter so now I’m trying to make up for it a little!
The warmer weather is also getting me thinking of pretty flowers and green grass. Since those aren’t quite here yet, I thought these mason jar succulent planters would bring some springy-ness to the house until things start blooming outside.
These planters were super easy to make!
I took 3 mason jars and some craft paint I had in the basement and gave the jars two coats of paint. I painted just on the lower third of the jars, kind of giving them that dipped look.
I lightly sanded the jars once the paint was dry and then added a couple handfuls of river rocks to the bottom.
I added a little dirt on top of the rocks and then plopped my succulents in, fluffed them a little, and I was done.
I really love how bright and cheery these little planters turned out!
And since I don’t do well at keeping plants alive indoors, succulents are the perfect low-maintenance solution for me!
Did you notice the sidewalk chalk in some of the pictures? When I was thinking of what colors to paint these jars, I glanced over at the chalk that was still sitting on our counter from outdoor playtime with my daughters yesterday. They were the perfect springy combination and oddly enough, I had all the coordinating craft paint colors on hand, so it worked out perfectly!
Have you started decorating for spring yet? Please tell me I’m not the only one who’s this far behind!
