I made some fun painted mason jar succulent planters, I going to have a sale local. I also have them all over my house too.

I’m a huge succulent fan, I don’t know anyone that doesn’t like succulents! Ha ha. And.. they fit perfect in mason jars. I also did some herbs not pictured, I’ll have to do more next year and make a mini herb garden. I love them all! He he.

I have some spray painting tips if you’re a beginner. 🙂

Succulent mason jars

I made a succulent dirt & sand mix and put some rocks at the bottom so they have drainage. I added some rock on top to spiffy them up a bit too, couple bags of rocks from the Dollar Tree, score!

I like the widemouthed jars 1 deposit casino for plants like these Elite and Widemouthed pints.


I use Rust-oleum and Valspar colors. The one orange jar to the left I added Minwax stain to age it.


Some more photos. 🙂




You can buy these ones in my Etsy shop.

      It was a Valspar color but they no longer make it. Rustoleum has some nice aqua shades.

      I paint all my jars on the outside. 🙂 If painted on the inside for plant use the paint may break down from the dirt, moisture and plant food you may use.
