While my love for Oui yogurt has had to slow down (I’ve switched to better for you nonfat Greek yogurt,) I still pick up those cute little glass jars as a treat from time to time. Remember how I repurposed glass yogurt jars for Fall and Halloween? I even made mini peanut butter pudding pies in them! They are not only adorable, but can serve many functions!
With Teacher Appreciation Day and Mother’s Day in May, I made these cute DIY succulent planters using repurposed glass yogurt jars.
How To Make DIY Succulent Planters Using Repurposed Yogurt Jars
- empty washed and dried yogurt jars
- hot glue gun
- thin ribbon
- small succulent plants
- rocks for drainage
- potting soil
- Starting at the top under the rim of the jar, glue one end of your twine to the jar with hot glue.
- Carefully hot glue the twine to the outside of the jar, a little at a time, until the entire outside is covered. You can use one long piece of twine.
- The ribbon is a bit trickier than the twine, but it is still pretty simple! Hot glue one end of the ribbon right under the rim, measure a piece that wraps all the way around, snip it, and glue it. (You can also glue the entire piece if you prefer.)
- Continue the same – cutting and gluing the ribbon – all the way down, making the ends line up in the back so the front is more visually appealing.
- When done, place a few small rocks at the bottom for drainage.
- Fill with potting soil.
- Gently place your succulent down into the potting soil, covering up the root bulb.
- Water lightly and watch your succulent grow!
