Marble Painted Succulent Planter

Marble Painted Succulent Planter

Well, hello there, friends. It’s been a hectic few weeks. Two amazing trips in in two weeks have really got my head spinning! I shared a bit about my trip to Hawaii already but I also went to Atlanta for Haven Conference where I got to meet so many incredible bloggers. When I got home my head was spinning with information and I couldn’t stop thinking of all the ways to improve my blog! Now I feel like I’m finally caught up. Hooray!

So, last week I shared my aloha sign (you can catch it here if you didn’t see it.) for my powder room. I loved the color combo so much I decided to give it another go, this time in marble.

I’ve been loving the marble painted trend and have been waiting for the perfect project to give it a try on. It was so surprisingly simple and now I want to marble everything!

A few months ago I got a bunch of these little glass jars and they turned out to be perfect for this project. I taped off the top half of the jars because I only wanted the marble effect on the bottom half.

I poured a tiny bit of each color on a paper plate. I think two to three color allows for the perfect mix. Any more and it might get a bit messy.

I ran a wooden skewer through the paint to run ribbons of one color into the other to create the marbling effect.

Next, I very gently rolled the jar in the paint. I set it top down to let the excess paint drip off and allowed it to dry.

The last step was potting the succulent. I also love it as a little bud vase.

I’m working on the powder room and this cute marble succulent planter will be a great edition.
