I found some great succulents at my local Wal-Mart store. Succulents are hardy plants that have adapted to living in dry, arid conditions, so they are practically indestructible! (I probably couldn’t even kill them!)
To pot my succulents, I gathered up my succulents, mason jars, potting soil, and some pea gravel (left over from another project) and assembled everything on my patio table outside — I figured things could get messy!
To pot my succulents, I first added a layer of pea gravel to the mason jars. The gravel gives the jars a nice look, and it also provides drainage for the plants.
I then added a healthy layer of potting soil and potted my succulents. I love how the gorgeous green succulents look in the pretty Ball mason jars!
I am not the best at tying bows, but I tied a pretty polka dot turquoise ribbon around each mason jar gift to give them a festive look! I like the way my new mason jar craft — potted succulents — look! The potted succulents looked pretty together on the night of our get together!

What a wonderful project. Relatively simple because I think I could actually do it. Its a lovely gift I would like to receive as well as give. Thanks for the post.
Thanks, Val! I am so happy you stopped by! I will go take a look at your lovely blog — there is always something nice to see there!
I love this!! Succulents have become a new passion of mine. I have several. I love the mason jar idea. It would also be a perfect gift! Thank you for sharing!
