We’re t-minus two days from March… which is basically April… which is when spring is supposed to happen… which means flowers and greenery and sunshine.
What better way to welcome the season than by sharing a fun DIY mason jar herb planter made out of a $5.00 thrift store frame?

How to Make a DIY Mason Jar Herb Planter
Like I mentioned above, this baby was a grand total of five dollars. I bought it solely for the frame – it’s a solid oak and in great condition.
After disassembling the frame, I measured and cut the wooden planks.
Next, I painted the frame with two coats of Rust-oleum’s White Linen chalk paint.
After letting it all dry, I nailed the boards to the back of the frame.
I started with six mason jars to hang, but ended up using only four so the plants would have a little more room to grow (green thumb, I’ve got my eye on you).
To secure the mason jars to the planks, I used clamps (found in the plumbing section of your local hardware store) and screwed them to the board.
Then I tightened the clamp around the top of the mason jar, below the bottom lip, so it won’t slide off.
Last but not least, fill those babies up with some great greenery and say hello to spring!
All our best,
