This year for Mother’s Day I created a simple, easy gift that could easily be used for a birthday, holiday, get well, or thinking of you gift, as well. I made some adorable mason jar flower planters. Mason jars are so popular right now and for good reason – they are so versatile!

Supplies Needed (contains affiliate links):
Step One: Clean your mason jar really well with soap and water. You could also use any clean, glass jar for this project. This is a great way to upcycle those old pickle and olive jars!
Fill the bottom with a handful of decorative stones. This will allow for adequate drainage when watering your finished planter.
Step Two: Fill your mason jar about halfway full with potting soil.
Step Three: Add your plant.
Step Four: Add more potting soil to fill in around your plant.
Step Five: Decorate with twine or ribbon and a pretty tag. (I found these tags at my local Dollar General store.)
To make a quick and easy Mother’s Day gift for my stepmom, mother-in-law and grandmother-in-law, I added text saying ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ to a picture and had it printed out. (You can easily do this with a free photo editing software like PicMonkey.com). I placed it in a frame and along with my cute mason jar planter, we had a thoughtful gift for the moms.
