Mason Jar Wall Vase

I have been attaching jars to boards for years--I think the first one I made was 16 years ago! But, here is a new twist on hr mason jar wall vase.

I used some of my colorful scraps of pallet wood and attached them with screws from the back to a piece of plywood.

I added a canning jar, using a piece of leather belt, washers and screws, to attach the jar to the wood background.  I had hubby help me hold the leather belt tight so that the jar is good and secured.

Some picture hanging wire on the back and you have a colorful wall vase--perfect for flowers, or office and art supplies, loose change, or toothbrushes and toothpaste in the bathroom.

  1. I drive my husband crazy because I can't throw away jars. Well here in Washington I'd be recycling them, but I can't even do that. They're so useful for so many things. I definitely use them for my homemade salsa. Great for storing leftovers in as I prefer glass over plastic. Anyway, love your creation. I've been meaning to do something similar for a long time. One of these days hopefully. I have too many projects going & dozens swimming around in my noggin. Have a great weekend Becky.

    1. Thanks Deb! I am with you--I hate throwing out jars. I do use them for lots of things. We cant even recycle them here anymore.

  2. Oh Becky you are so smart. I picked up some of those metal bands to make some of these in November, but I was never motivated to make any - the wire band just wasn't the look I was after. But belts? I've got belts and I can make mine like this. The colorful wood background Beyond The Picket Fence trademark look, that colors are perfect behind the jar.

    1. Thanks Bliss--not sure if it is smart or just cheap and resourceful!

  3. Love this that leather strap is the perfect touch.
