Enamel paint (I used Plasti-kote’s Fast Dry Enamel Brush On in Jade, Sky Blue and Lavender)
Sponge (I used a kitchen sponge)
1. Clean and dry the jars. Pour a little enamel paint out into a dish, and dab with the sponge (you don’t want to overload the sponge).
2. Pat the sponge gently onto the bottom of the jar, going over the area at the bottom until the jar is totally covered, but leaving a lighter covering at the top for a graduated look. Leave the dry and repeat if necessary.
3. Put a layer of small pebbles into the base of the jar (for drainage) and then fill with potting soil to the rim.
4. Use your fingers to make a hole in the soil and then pop in your mini succulent, pressing the soil down around it to make sure it’s firmly planted (I used the back of a teaspoon for the cactus to avoid getting pricked!).
Disclosure: Plasti-kote provided me with the paint for this project free of charge
