A succulent mason jar terrarium will look gorgeous in your home or they also make great gift ideas. With the wide selection of artificial succulents available, this is one project that can be made many, many different ways. Add this fun mason jar craft to your must make list for holiday gift giving or just to add to your home decor. Succulents are so popular right now but with their faux counterparts, you don’t have to worry about killing any plants!
- Artificial Succulents
- Wide Mouth Quart Jar
- Sand (in the color of your choice)
- Crushed Shells (in the color of your choice)
- River Rocks
Start in the bottom of a clean jar and add sand and crushed shells. You can choose the colors of these items that will match your home decor. I went fairly neutral as I was planning on using these as gifts. On top of the shells, add a few rocks and some moss. These layers give interest to the jar but also make it look more like a real terrarium which would need drainage on the bottom.
Start trimming succulents to length with your scissors and arranging in the jar. Some version you might cut into multiple pieces. Just stick your succulent down into the moss and rocks. No glue is required for this project.
Once complete, your succulent jar terrarium is ready to be displayed in your home or given as a gift. I love the fact that there is such a wide variety of succulents available. You can make this project a dozen times and no two would be alike.
Add this project to your list! You will love the results! This one is perfect for those with a “black” thumb or if you just want something green in your home that takes care of itself.
I think anyone on your Christmas list would love getting one of these beauties as a gift as well. Add the supplies to your cart and give your friends a succulent jar terrarium this holiday season.
