You Will Need:

When you buy your succulents for your DIY mason jar succulent planter, you can target specific seasons pretty easily. For spring and summer;  keep your colors light with greens mixed in. For fall or winter; reds, yellows or oranges will work very well. I don’t know about you, but I adore decor that I can match to the seasons!

To start, use the hot glue gun to add a layer of glue to the bottom and sides of your mason jar lid.  Add in a small handful of moss making sure to use enough to create a strong base for your DIY mason jar succulent planter. Set it aside and allow the glue to dry fully. Once it is fully dry, add the lid and moss to the inside of your mason jar. If you want to make sure it doesn’t slide around at all, add a dollop of hot glue to the underside of the lid before you seat it inside the jar.

Once you have the lid seated in the jar where you would like it, add any succulents you want to the jar sitting them on top of the mossy lid. If needed, use a pencil to help guide the succulents where you would like them to be. If you find yourself having trouble placing the succulents for your DIY mason jar succulent planter, turning the jar on its side can often help at first.

Once you have your succulents placed, add a few glass marbles down into the jar and around the lid to help finish off the look. If you would want to continue, this upcycled mason jar craft ideas makes a fantastic centerpiece for a summer or fall tablescape. To do that, stack 3-4 birch discs in the center of the table and finish by laying more succulents and moss around them. Keep in mind that if you’re using real succulents, they will eventually need to be planted in order to keep them alive.
