You can make this cactus planter pot in minutes from a mason jar. I have a thing for all things cactus. I mean they are so cute right?

How to make this cactus planter pot:
- Start by cutting your transfer into the individual pieces on the cut lines.
- Adhere the first transfer into place on the jar and press down well. Remove all air bubbles. TIP: Stick the transfer to a bath towel and pick up a little fuzz first to avoid it sticking too harshly.
- Add some Chalkology paste to the transfer and then run your squeegee across to get it into all of the areas.
- Remove all excess paste and return to the jar.
- Then pull up the transfer to reveal your design.
- Repeat with all of the other transfers to make this cactus planter pot. Remember to let each section dry before adding on layers. You can see our tips for layering with Chalk Couture by clicking here.
- Remember to wash your transfer and tools immediately and do not let the paste dry on them. Clorox wipes are great for this. Clean the front and back and then allow to dry sticky side up before returning to the backing paper.
- You can leave your design as is or seal with a spray sealer to make it last forever!
Then just add in a cactus and this project is done! I love how this cactus planter pot turned out. And you know…I love how easy this one is as well! Chalk Couture makes projects like this super simple. Give it a try today because I guarantee you will be hooked after just one project!
