Mason Jar Flower Planter. Make a cute Mother’s Day gift with a mason jar planter. Works great for the patio, centerpieces, or even weddings.
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!

How to Make a Mason Jar Planter
Clean your mason jar 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, as there are no holes in the bottom.
Fill your mason jar about halfway full with potting soil.
Add your plant.
Add more potting soil to fill in around your plant.
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 free photo editing software like Canva. I placed it in a frame and along with my cute mason jar planter, we had a thoughtful gift for the moms.
