How to Upcycle a Mason Jar into a Pineapple Planter

  1. Thoroughtly clean the glass jar and remove any labels. Paint the outer surface of the jar with yellow paint.
  2. While the paint is still wet, wipe some of it away in random areas such as the raised edges to give the jar a distressed look. Let it dry completely.
  3. Place a few small pebbles or stones in the bottom of the glass jar for a bit of drainage.
  4. Fill the jar with the potting soil.
  5. Plant the zebra succulent into the top of the jar, making sure it sticks out like the crown leaves of a pineapple. Enjoy!

I think this little mason jar craft makes such a fun and cheery succulent planter. It’ll look even better as the succulent grows larger. I think next time I’d use a slightly smaller jar to make the succulent really stand out! Be sure to grab the adorable “Hugs for Free” cactus wall art printable as well.

This one looks quite happy so far. Just remember to water it every now and then (don’t over-water). These guys would make an adorable party favour for a tropical or Hawaiian themed party. We also have a free ocean creatures printable which you could use to create gift tags or use as colouring pages for a tropical themed birthday party.

Oh how fun. The kids made similar jars for our :"sweet like a pineapple" birthday party last month! These are nicer and more adult :)

That's such a great idea! I presume they put yummy treats in the jars? Thanks so much for stopping by.

So cute! And looks so easy. My only problem is I would forget to water the plant, so I'd have to use the jar for something else!
