I can’t even begin to explain the MASSIVE purge I’ve been doing around the house lately. Every nook and cranny. Sometimes I haven’t even begun cleaning out a spot when another spot distracts me. I was cooking the other day and suddenly found myself organizing a drawer in the kitchen. So I’ve been determined to either find a place or function for everything. I have a HUGE stash in my garage of things I’ve found along the way that I loved but never did anything with. A lot of the stuff ends up upcycled and for sale at A Diamond in the Stuff Boutique but some stuff just sits.
I had this beautiful old mason jar that was missing a lid and had a crack in it. It wasn’t sell worthy so it needed to find a place in my home. I decided that it needed to become a Mason Jar Succulent…..
By the way….I am so over winter! So this project was just what I needed to brighten my life. I luckily had everything I needed on hand except the succulent which made this project even better.
I added a bunch of pea gravel to the bottom of the mason jar for plenty of drainage for the succulent.
Then I added some fast draining potting mix on top of the pea gravel and popped my succulent in.
Bam! That’s it. A super adorable Mason Jar Succulent!
Since I’ve got a little yellow and aqua thing going on in my kitchen I thought this was the best place for my new addition.
I love to have little bits of greenery in the house, but because I have been known to be a bit of a black thumb, most of mine is fake. I have faith that I can keep this succulent alive. I hope.
It’s just so beautiful isn’t it?
Do you love succulents as much as I do???
