Mason Jar Wall Vases

Mason jars, rustic wood and daffodils ... are you sensing a theme here?


Last week I shared my mason jar crates.



Well I had a free Sunday afternoon and a willing helper, so I made these mason jar wall vases on the same day. And they were just as easy!


The only thing I needed to purchase for this project was a pack of stainless steel clamps. You can find them in the plumbing department of your local hardware/home improvement store. And this pack of 6 was only $5 plus change.


The first thing I did was position the clamps on the jars. I liked them with the clamps front and center.



 Then I turned the jars around and marked the center on the back side.


After removing the clamp, I extended the line to the inside.


Then my handy helper made holes for the screws that would attach the jars to the blocks of wood. 



 We used wood we had in the garage and cut it in 12"sections, but the size doesn't really matter all that much. You could use larger or smaller mason jars and adjust the size of the wood to your liking. I used some bright spring colors (leftover paint of course), distressed the wood and finished with a coat of wipe-on poly. The bands were screwed into the wood first, then tightened around the jars.


We positioned the bands so that the bottom of the jar was level with the bottom of the wood. That allows the vases to sit on a flat surface without tipping over.


But we also added saw tooth hangers on the back so that they can hang on a wall.


And there you have it, super cute mason jar wall vases!


I hope the daffodils make you feel like spring!
