What You’ll Need:

Mason Jars |


Step 1: Begin by giving your mason jars a thin layer of grey spray paint. It doesn’t have to be even, as this will help the overall shabby chic look.

Step 2: Leave your base coat to dry, and then use your paintbrush to coat your mason jars with vintage paint. Use all kinds of brush strokes—up and down, side to side, diagonal—and once again don’t worry about too even an application. By allowing your base grey to show through your vintage paint, you get a gorgeous aged finish.

Step 3: Before the vintage paint can dry, use your finger or a piece of cloth to rub away the paint where you’d like more of your base grey to show through—like the letters on your mason jars.

Step 4: Fill your mason jars with soil (right up to the neck of the jars) and, using a variety of succulent types and colours, transfer your succulents into the jars.
