DIY succulent gift idea


DIY succulent gift idea for Mother’s Day! Simple, inexpensive and cute!

Today I have a simple gift idea for Mother’s Day along with a fabulous giveaway for a Mother’s Day shopping spree! Scroll down to the bottom to enter. That would be my dream! ;)

Succulent’s are so popular right now and I have to admit at first I wasn’t a huge fan. They have grown on me and when I spotted this little succulent plant at the nursery the other day I just had to pick it up. I thought it would look even cuter in a mason jar. Let’s face it… everything is cuter in a jar, right?! I even have a whole post dedicated to mason jars.

This gift will take you minutes to throw together and would make the perfect gift for Mother’s Day or Teacher Appreciation.

Simple gift idea for Mother's Day




Remove the plant from the pot and stick in a jar. Tap the jar on the counter or use a toothpick to spread out the soil. For the washi tape tag, just write the name on the tape and then wrap the tape around a landscape pin or popsicle stick. Then just stick it into the back of the jar. Super easy and simple.

Another cute idea is to add this free printable tag Amy shared last week. I think it could work for Mothers and teachers. :D

    Love this…super cute! Where did you find your plants? It looks like there’s a cluster of 3 in the pot.

    Hi where did you get your small mason jars from and the ribbon?

    • I Heart Naptime posted on May 4, 2016 at 4:41 pm (#

      I like to get mason jars at the hardware store, I usually find they have the best selection. Big box store (Target, Walmart) also carry mason jars but not as many sizes, I’ve found.

      I got the ribbon at Joanne’s. :)
