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!
