You all know how much I love mason jars. I constantly post about their endless everyday usefulness. I’ve used them as fun gift ideas, such as Cowgirl Cookies… Creative party decor at a Cowboy Chic Shower… Practical and useful home decor, such as Bathroom Storage and Soap Dispensers… And Useful and edible canning adventures. The possibilities are freaking endless, and surprise, surprise I have another fabulous idea to bring your way. Mason Jar Herb Gardens, by Camille Styles. I posted something very similar in a write up about different types of fun and interesting pots, but it was not herb specific. Personally, I have a need for fresh herbs in my life and this proves that it is possible to not only grow herbs, but grow cool herbs. As soon as I get back from Singapore this is the first thing on my To-Do List. Right next to take a sewing class, paint my doors, Modge Podge my desk, plant some vines and get my car fixed. Ok so I have a lot to do apparently. It will all get done. Eventually.
- Old wooden board
- Mason jars
- Pipe clamps
- Triangle ring hangers
- Stainless hanging wire
- Picture hanger
- Chalkboard paint & chalk
- Hammer, nails and screwdriver
- Space mason jars evenly on wooden board, and mark placement with a pencil in order to design and me sure around.
- Tape off rectangles on board, and paint with chalkboard paint as pictured above. This way, you can switch out herbs and change their labels accordingly.
- Secure pipe clamps to wooden board by hammering a nail through the small holes in the pipe clamp.
- On back of board, nail in ring hangers and tie on hanging wire.
- Plant herbs in mason jars.
- Place mason jars into pipe clamps and tighten with a screwdriver.
- Nail picture hanger into the wall, and hang your herb display!
