These DIY Paper Succulents in Mini Mason Jars are a great gift idea for Mom this Mother’s Day or just make yourself a set to adorn a shelf!
I had so much fun making my DIY Paper Succulent Wall Art, I decided to do another paper succulent project! I have these on the windowsill in my office and I love that they’re “plants” I don’t have to remember to take care of (even if you don’t only have to water succulents very often in the first place)!
Here’s what you’ll need to make this project:
- Silhouette CAMEO (or Portrait)
- Light Hold Mat (optional but awesome for working with paper)
- Cardstock in assorted colors
- Designs used: 3D Succulent & Spiral Gardenia
- 4 oz Mason Jars
- Chalk Paint in assorted colors
- Fine Sand Paper
- Mod Podge Matte Clear Acrylic Sealer Spray
For the Jars:
- Paint 1-2 coats Chalk Paint on jars, allowing first coat to dry before applying second coat.
- Once fully dry (I let them dry overnight), lightly sand to distress.
- Spray with Mod Podge Clear Acrylic Sealer and allow to dry.
For the succulents/flowers:
- I cut out several succulents/flowers in various colors of cardstock in a and assembled them as shown above with tacky glue. I sized them to be 1-2 inches larger in diameter than the jar opening.
- You just kind of pinch the leaves and fold toward the center, offsetting each layer (from largest to smallest).
- The pink flower you simply rolls up and glue.
Sweet and simple!
Aren’t the mini jars adorable?
