Mason Jar Wall Organizer - easy step-by-step photos to help you make a beautiful mason jar holder for the bathroom or home! Let me show you how my husband made the perfect Mother's Day gift for me with this easy DIY project using hose clamps, screws and of course mason jars!
Who doesn't love a mason jar post? If you've been following my blog or my Facebook page for any length of time you'll know that I have a slight obsession with mason jars.
For some time now I've been sharing photos of a mason jar wall organizer on Facebook and thinking, it couldn't be that hard to put one together and wouldn't one of these make a nice gift for ME!
My Mason Jar Collection
Here's a photo of the collection of antique mason jars I have in our house. I display them on top of the cabinets in our kitchen.
In fact when we redid our kitchen a few years ago we made the decision not to have the cabinets to all the way to the top of the ceiling so I could continue to display my beautiful blue mason jar collection.
Materials and Tools Needed:
- One Plaque (24” x 6”)
- Three pint sized mason jars
- Three 4” hose clamps
- Three ½” wood screws
- Three picture hangers with nails
- Stain - your choice of color.
- Phillips head screwdriver
- Flathead screwdriver
- Tin snips
- Drill with 1/16th inch bit Flat head bit
- Phillips head bit
Step 1: Stain the Plaque
- Using the stain color of your choice, brush on the stain and then wipe off to create the right look you want for your home decor.
- Set aside and allow to dry completely before continuing.
Step 2: Attach the Hose Clamps
- Fit the hose clamps around the mason jars, using the drill with the flat head bit or flathead screwdriver.
- Mark the center of the back of the mason jar on the tightened hose clamp. Also mark where the extra hose clamp slack starts.
- Remove the hose clamps.
- Use snips or some other safe cutting tool clip the ends of the clamps.
Step 3: Attach the Mason Jars
- Fasten the picture hangers on the back of the wood.
- Line them up with the top edge of the wood to make sure they’re even.
- Measure and mark the center of the wood, then measure and mark the center of each half.
- Drill a shallow pilot hole into each mark.
- Open each hose clamp and hold the marked center over each pilot hole. You may need to use the flat head screwdriver to nudge the slot open a bit more.
- Screw the hose clamps into the wood with the wood screw using the drill with a Phillips Head bit.
- Place the mason jars inside the hose clamps, and close and tighten the hose clamps with a flat head screwdriver.
Step 3: How do you hang a Mason jar on the wall?
I originally thought this would be great in our bathroom so I can store my makeup brushes and other beauty items in the jars, but we don't have too much wall space in our bathroom and the mason jar organizer just didn't look right.
Besides, I wanted everyone to see this and not many people visit our master bathroom. We found the perfect spot in our dinning room right under my grandmother's sampler that I have framed.
My grandmother was the one who started me on my love of mason jars and I actually have a few that were hers among my collection.
Step 4: What to put in the jars?
I decided to put colored glass stones with votive candles in the jars and then a burlap flower that we used from the decor at our daughter's wedding last year.
I also tried putting fresh flowers in the center jar and think I'll do this when we have company come over and sit in the dinning room for dinner.
