My name is Deborah, and I blog with my husband at Salvage Sister & Mister. Our mission is to assist you in salvaging your time, money, resources, and moments for your best life. One of the BIG ways we do that is upcycle projects, but we also cover family, food, and life. We love making the best with what we already have.
Who doesn't love mason jars, right? You can also find them just about everywhere....even your spaghetti jar. I had some succulents left over from a wedding I attended and thought a mason jar terrarium would be just the ticket to put some of these items into use.

- Small River Rocks
- Potting Soil
Step 2 Fill the bottom with small rocks. You can use ones from your yard or purchase them. The cleaner they are the prettier it will look.
Step 3 Add a layer of moss.
Step 4 The next layer is potting soil.
Step 5 Finally add the succulents. If you want to cheat, you can use plastic ones (I won't tell). Tie a string on the outside and you are good to go. The best thing about a terrarium, and succulents in general, is they require little care. Place in a bright area and water as directed per type of succulent you get (plastic variety need none....just saying). In general, they should need little supervision. Now you had a chance to upcycle a jar, string, and maybe even some rocks. Use this for home décor, centerpiece, or even a party favor. Wouldn't a small one be a great little gift? Make sure to pin it for later....
