$10 DIY Succulent Frame

Hey guys! Happy Wednesday!  Ash and I are back with another fun and simple project!  We love succulents and mason jars, so we joined the two to make this super cute $10 DIY Succulent Frame!

How fun is that?!  Before we get started, be sure to check out the DIY Succulent Frame how-to video HERE or by clicking the box below!

DIY Succulent Frame Plans

You only need one 1x3x6 board to make the frame for this project.  Here are the cuts you need to make.  We used a miter saw for this, but you can easily use an inexpensive hand saw like THIS ONE on Amazon.

The first step is to drill holes in one of your 15″ pieces.  This will be your top piece of the frame.  We used a 3/8″ drill bit for ours.

The middle hole should be placed in the center of the board and the two on each side should be 4″ from that one.

Now to build the frame!  Start by attaching the bottom board to the side boards.  Make sure to add wood glue between each joint and attach using 1.25″ brad nails.

Now attach the top piece the same way.  Again, add a line of wood glue between each piece.

And there is your frame!

We painted ours with Rust-Oleum Chalked paint in Charcoal… Actually Ash did since I’m still pregnant!

Once that was dry, we sanded the edges a bit to give it a distressed finish and added the succulents and mason jars.  Want to see how we made them hang??  Check out the video HERE!  We walk you through the entire thing!

And here she is all finished up!

Thanks so much for stopping by guys!  Let us know if you have any questions at all!

    We made this project at a bridal shower (in lieu of games). We premade and painted the frames, and guests planted and hung the plants. We found hinged small mason jars at Ikea- a 3 pack- and removed the lids. It was a hit. Thanks for such a great project!

    I have all these little glass yogurt jars and have no idea what to do with them! I wish i can do this but I don’t even own a drill. Awesome tutorial though!
