This is a really simple DIY project, and it’s really inexpensive, too. I just used items I already had on hand, plus some inexpensive flowers from Home Depot.

Fill the bottom of the jar with bits of styrofoam to create drainage. Then, gently pot your plants.

These jars shouldn’t be used as a long-term planter solution due to size and drainage, but they make a lovely gift.
