This was a project that I’ve seen on Pinterest in a few different styles. I thought we had the perfect space for it and it seemed fairly easy to make so I decided to try it out. The process was easy and inexpensive. I used the following:
- 1 sheet of scrapbook paper (may need more depending on your wood size)
- Piece of wood (could use any scrap wood you have lying around. I didn’t have any so grabbed a scrap from Home Depot)
- Hose clamp (bring your jar with to make sure you get the right size)
- Mason jar
- Mod Podge
I roughed up the piece of wood by lightly sanding, then I cut the paper to fit the size of the wood. I painted a light coat of mod podge onto the wood. Carefully, I placed the sheet of paper on and smoothed it out so there were no bubbles. I then painted another very thin coat of mod podge over the paper.
I let dry for a few hours until it wasn’t tacky to touch. I used a picture hanger to hang the hose clamp, as you can see in the photo. Once I secured that the hose clamp hung right off of it.
Once it was attached I secured the Mason jar. The hose clamp is adjustable so I loosened it to insert the mason jar and then tightened it until the jar wouldn’t slip through. I tested it out by filling half full with water before hanging and adding water and flowers to ensure the jar didn’t slide out. It didn’t!
Since we have these insane walls that are near impossible to nail into I used a 3M strip to hang it. I grabbed the ones that hold up to twelve pounds, followed the instructions on the package and hung.
Such a simple, inexpensive, wall hanging. The total cost break down was:
- Wood: $0.50
- Paper: $0.29
- Hose clamp: $2.00
- 3M strips: $3.00
- Mod Podge, scrap-book paper: already had
Love $6 projects! We hung it in our kitchen/dining area but I’m thinking I might make a few more with different paper and larger mason jars to hang in the living area. I also love the idea of making them with wine bottles. Hmm maybe I’ll do that instead!
