“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.”
Is there anyone out there that doesn’t like succulents? I mean they seem to fit just about any decor style.
Today, I am sharing a way to use up those mason jars you have lying around in this….Upcycle Mason Jar Terrarium!
I had some succulents left over from a wedding I attended and thought a mason jar terrarium would be just the ticket to put some of these items into use.

UPCYCLE MASON JAR TERRARIUM SUPPLY LIST

- Wide Mouth Quart Mason Jar, spaghetti jars are usually a great size
- Piece of (leftover) String/Twine
- Small River Rocks
- Potting Soil
Make sure the jar is clean and all labels have been removed.
Fill the bottom with small rocks, for drainage. You can use ones from your yard or purchase them. The cleaner they are the prettier it will look.
Next, add a layer of moss.
The next layer is potting soil.
Finally, add the succulents. If you want to cheat, you can use plastic ones (I won’t tell). Tie a string on the outside and you are good to go.
The best thing about a terrarium, and succulents in general, is they require little care. Place in a bright area, and water as directed. In general, they should need little supervision.
Now you had a chance to upcycle a jar, string, and maybe even some rocks.
Use this for home décor, centerpiece, or even a party favor. Wouldn’t a small one be a great little gift?
Make sure to pin it for later….
How easy was that?
