Does anyone else have an obsession with mason jars? I don’t know what it is about them…but they are just so freakin’ adorable. I suppose I imagine myself with a different life when I hold one.  I’m sitting on a porch, drinking sweet tea, and sitting in a rocking chair.

Supplies for Mason Jar Organizer

Assemble your supplies to make the mason jar organizer: Hose clamps, wood, wood Stain picture hanging kit, hammer, rag, drill, titanium drill bits, and screws.

Here’s what you’ll need for this project.

Mason Jar Organizer – Project Steps

Hose clamps can be found in the plumbing section of your local home improvement store.

These are the hose clamps. I had never heard of them until this project, so do not be afraid! Just ask someone at your local home improvement store to point you in the right direction, and buy a size that will fit around your mason jars. You’ll find these in the plumbing aisle.

Okay so now that you’ve got all of your supplies, it’s time to stain the wood.

Any wood stain can be used for this project.

I just used some leftover stain from another project (you can check out my staining tips from this post about our floating credenza).

Stain your wood then allow it to fully dry.

So stain it up and let your wood fully dry.

Then get out that power drill of yours. Okay, now I’m not gonna lie. At this point, I was on a roll and I was all ready to finish this project and get it on the wall. However, I did run into a few troubles. Here are my tips so you can avoid any mistakes.

Rookie Tip #1: Use a drill bit to get a pilot hole started in the wood, where you’ll eventually screw in the hose clamp.

Rookie Tip #2: Also use the drill bit to make a hole in the hose clamp. You’ll definitely need to put your back into it, because it can be difficult to create a hole in the metal. I suggest using a titanium drill bit like this one.

After you’ve created the hole in the wood and the hole in the hose clamp, line them up, and screw the hose clamp into the wood.

Screw the hose clamp into the stained wood.

Repeat 3 more times until all hose clamps are attached.

Picture hangers work great to hang the finished mason jar organizer.

To hang this bad boy, I just nailed in 2 picture hangers on the backside of the wood.

I am loving the way it turned out! It’s farmhouse chic to me, not to mention it stores all kinds of bathroom goodies.I think this mason jar organizer would work great just about anywhere. Maybe in your kitchen for knives, forks, and spoons? Perhaps in a craft room to hold pencils, scissors, and glue? The possibilities really are endless. The versatile mason jar organizer can hold flowers and other bathroom essentials.

This same mason jar organizer could even add some serious freshness to your kitchen, patio or city balcony.

Mason jar organizers can be used for an herb garden.
