Mason Jar Decor

My inspiration piece was from Target. I thought it was super cute, but I did not want to spend $25 on it and I thought I could probably make it cuter for less. I already have a bunch of pallet pieces laying around so while I was painting my bench for our kitchen table I took a pallet in the size I wanted and dry brushed it heirloom white to give it an shabby antique look.

Easter weekend my sister-in-law, mother-in-law and I left for Canton for the day. Canton is the best place to find good deals and neat gifts/decor etc. I knew I wanted three jars like the picture so I set out to get three blue mason jars. I love mason jars and have quite a collection whether it be my drinking cups or they are used for decor. I found the mason jars for super cheap and identical. It was meant to be. Then the hubby and I were at Lowe's and to finish the project I needed three pipe clamps and some hardware. When we got back home I ran into a few small glitches. The mason jars have a smaller diameter on the top than the bottom so to attach to the board I needed to up the height. I found three little wooden blocks that I had from another project and glued them on equally spaced out on my pallet. Once the wooden blocks were glued on I drilled screws into the pipe clamps through the blocks into the pallet. The screws were used versus nails so I could insure it would hold the jars. Then I put the jars into the clamps and tighten them around the jars.

Then I attached a wire hanger on the back and hung above my desk. My decor could be decorative or currently it holds my paintbrushes and fun markers and pens. At first I thought I hung it to high above my desk, but it worked out because it could be decor as well as functional and underneath my desk I am wanting to fill the empty space with idea boards and probably some pictures of my kiddos. Definitely a fun quick project!
