Instead of throwing away those glass jars, upcycle them! After cleaning this old glass jar, using a little bit of hot glue, I wrapped some lace ribbon & twine around it. Added some clean rock and fresh water. Then took some spiderettes (baby spider plants from my big spider plant) and placed them in the jar. You can also add in a betta fish. Be creative with your jars and place them around your home. Makes for great gifts too!
With this one, I simply layered dirt & rocks. Then placed a few succulents & a purple flowering plant inside.
Hands down, this was my favorite one to create! Again, using hot glue, lace ribbon & twine for the top. On the bottom instead of twine, I used natural river rock, hot gluing each one onto the bottom of the jar. Inside is a layer of dirt, spooned in! If you pour it in, you’ll have a messy jar of dirt displayed around the entire inside of the jar. Then by using a toothpick, placing the moss rose succulent, carefully inside gently pressing each of the roots into the dirt . This happens to be one that will change color with each bloom. You can get just one color, but mostly they are a multi-color flowering succulent. I then added a little decorative figurine from a leftover fairy garden. These make for great, smaller centerpieces on a coffee table or even outside table for parties, gatherings & gifts! Tip: When you water it simply use a spray bottle and try to get just the dirt wet, then you won’t have it fog up. You can also sprinkle in some natural sand on top of the dirt (using the spoon).
