Step 1: Supplies
- 1 piece of scrap wood (we used a 4"x14" piece of particle board)
- 2 mason jars
- 2 mounts
- 2 metal clamps (plumbing section)
- 4 screws
Step 2: Mount Clamps to Wood
- Mount clamps to wood.
- TIP: screw down one side of the mount, slide the clamp under the mount, screw down the other side
Step 3: Tighten Clamps on Jars
Slide the mason jars into the clamp. Then, tighten the clamps either by hand or with a screwdriver.
Step 4: Add the Plants!
We planted succulents layering soil over loose stones. For a kitchen planter, herbs would also be a great choice. After you choose your plant, hang it up on the wall or keep it by a window for light.
