Step 1: Get Wood
Dumpster dive or search alleyways to find some reclaimed wood. If that fails, then I suppose you could go to your local hardware store and purchase said wood. You might also want to check Craigslist for wood in the 'free' or 'material' sections.
Depending on how many mason jars you want to add per board, measure appropriately for spacing. Each of my boards were about 40 inches so I separated my jars 8 inches apart and centered them using a ruler and a sharpie.
Step 2: The Foundation
To secure my mason jars, I used metal clamps and mending plates. The mending plates secure the clamps to the board.
First, I marked the center, where the mending plate would be placed. I marked where each plate would drilled into the board using a sharpie. Then I drilled the bottom screw about 3/4 of the way into the board and slid the clamp underneath. Then I drilled the top screw in to secure the clamp. I repeated this until I had secured all of my clamps to the board.
Step 3: Finished Board
Here you can see the clamps and plates screwed into the board.
Step 4: Install Mason Jars
Using the clamps, I attached my mason jars to the piece of wood.
Step 5: Finished Planter
Finally, I put my plants inside each mason jar and then used picture hanging hardware to hang the planter on the wall. This is what your planter will look like when you have finished.
