- Small glass jars
- Small succulent plants
- Fast-draining, sandy potting mix
- Small river rocks
- Craft paint and paint brush
- Card stock
- Scissors or craft knife, mat and ruler
- Double-stick tape
- Cake-pop sticks
Clean glass jars and dry thoroughly.
Paint the insides of the jars with a coat of craft paint and let dry. Repeat with another coat of paint if needed and let dry overnight.
Add a few river rocks to the bottom of the painted jars for drainage.
Fill the jars halfway with potting mix. Remove your succulents from their original pots and separate them (if necessary) to fit your jars.
Plant succulents in the jars and surround with additional potting mix. Keep them watered and happy in a sunny room until ready to use. (Succulents do not need frequent watering.)
To make the plant flags, print the succulent flags template onto card stock (each page makes 4 flags, so print as many pages as you need). Cut out flags. Wrap each flag around a cake-pop stick and use double-stick tape to secure. Cut out "V" shapes from the ends of the flags (optional). Set aside.
On the day of the shower, wipe off the outside of the jars and stick the plant flags in the soil of each jar.
