As a budget crafter, it’s fun to make my own version of an expensive items for pennies. I saw some faux succulent centerpieces at a home decor store and knew I had to make them myself.

- Glass jars
- Burlap and lace
- Plastic succulents
- Mod Podge Sheer
Step one: Remove labels from jars and clean. I left one jar clear and tinted the other one. Coat the inside of the jar with tinted Mod Podge and let it dry.
Step two: Wrap a piece of burlap around the jar, and hot glue it in place.
Step three: Wrap a piece of lace around the burlap and glue.
All that’s left to do is fill the jar with your favorite plant or flowers. I used succulents because I was copying the store item, but these would look just as pretty with flowers or decorative branches inserted. These decorated jars would look great on a mantle, or make pretty centerpieces for a party. Have fun crafting and creating!
