  • 1 Wash jar Pink mason jar with washi tape

    Start by washing your jar, then use washi tape to tape off where you would like your paint line to be.

  • 2 Paint below tape line White painted pink mason jar

    After it's taped, paint below the tape line with chalk paint. The paint dries quickly, and you will probably need about 2 to 3 coats for it to cover thoroughly.

  • 3 Cover with Mod Podge

    After the paint has dried, paint Mod Podge over the same area, and then cover it with glitter.

  • 4 Add succulent

    Once the jar is dry, add some potting soil and then add your succulent. For a no maintenance alternative use vase filler and an artificial succulent.

  • 5 Paint heart Pink wooden heart accent

    Paint the wooden heart with the second color of chalk paint. Use rubber stamps or handwrite, "Love grows here."

  • 6 Add embellishments

    Hot glue the wooden heart onto a paper straw and stick it into the dirt or vase filler. Wrap a ribbon around the jar.
