Learn how to make chalk paint mason jars with succulents for spring. Perfect for a kitchen windowsill or a seasonal mantel!
I’ve been so excited to get started on some Spring crafts for the house. I got a TON of succulents sent to me and I’ve been dying to do a quick project with them. I have a pretty wide ledge on my kitchen window seal and I thought they would be perfect there.
Plus I love using mason jars when crafting, they are simply the BEST!
How to Paint Mason Jars
Gather These Supplies
Step 1 – Paint Mason Jar
Pick out some of your favorite colors and paint your mason jars. I decided to add a strip of color in the middle of the jar for a little extra pizazz! (There also my two favorite colors!)
Step 2 – Seal Mason Jar with Chalk Finish
Next I distressed the jar with some light sandpaper. Then I covered the jar with some Ultra Matte Chalk Finish to seal my paint in.
Step 3 – Add Glitter
Now my favorite part! Adding the glitter! I wanted to give this craft a little something extra so I decided to add some glitter to the lid.
I covered the entire lid with my Mod Podge and sprinkled my glitter on top. Let dry 20 minutes.
Step 4 – Add Succulents
Now let’s add our succulents! I used a piece of dry foam and cut it to fit the inside of the jar.
Then I used some moss for the center and added my succulents! The dry foam works great and was so easy to push the succulents into.
I think these DIY mason jar succulents turned out great, a perfect touch of spring for the house. Next I want to make some nautical ones for summer!
I hope you enjoyed today’s quick and easy chalk paint mason jars!! I can’t wait to get the house ready for Spring.
I’m in North Carolina and it’s really starting to feel like Spring here. Flowers are popping up all over the place and trees are blooming!!
