Mason Jar Key Hook

Hey guys!  Hope you all had a great Wednesday :-)

I have a fun project to share today!

I started with a 1×8 board from Lowe’s that I cut to about 2′ long.  I used a different paint method on this board and I love how it turned out so I am going to share it with you in my next post.  So for now… Here is my board after it is painted and ready to go.

I also purchased 3 hooks and a pipe clamp from Lowe’s.  You can find the pipe clamps in the plumbing section.  I bought the smallest 3″ clamp and it was under $2.

My next step was attaching them to my board.  I used my drill to attach my hooks first.

Then it was time to attach the clamp.  After attempting to drill a hole in the darn thing for 30 minutes I decided to hammer a hole in it instead.  I just put a thick nail on one of the little openings and hit it hard with a hammer. Done.  I then wished I would have tried that 30 minutes ago.

I used a 3/4″ wood screw to attach it to my board.

Finally, I added to picture hangers to the back of it and hung it up.  Mine is on the wall leading just into the garage.  I dropped a mason jar into the ring and added a few cotton blossom twigs I found at Michael’s.

I love it.  It makes me happy when I look at it. :-)

I’m thinking these would be super cute hand towel hooks for the bathroom.  What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!

I will show you my new paint method in my next post so stay tuned.  It’s super easy and distresses perfectly… Whoop!

  4. Did you ever post how you did the paint? Looked through your site and couldn’t find it!

    I made this tonight and it turned out beautifully. I actually glued a few of the flowers onto the screw of the pipe fitter. Looks great!

  10. I just made this (minus the mason jar) for the guest bathroom. No more towels on the floor, yay! Thank you so much for inspiring so many of us to create and beautify our homes. I am grateful for you two.

  11. This is so darn cute!

  12. That is just darling. I like the surprise vase at the end.

  13. kalamazoo says:

    i saw something similar in a store recently…no hooks just three of the rings with a bright flower pot in each with herbs for the kitchen. I like your idea with hooks too!

  14. I loved this when I saw it! I Pinned it when I found it and finally got around to making one of my own. Thank you so much for the great idea!

  15. Love this.

  16. I so love that!! My tomorrow project for sure!! I need something like that in my bathroom :)

  17. Just gorgeous! Thank you Whitney for the directions on this one :) I used this for inspiration for our own mason jar coat rack here… http://lepetitesweetcupcakes.blogspot.com/2011/07/10-mason-jar-coat-rack.html

  18. I LOVE it! I’m really liking the rustic pained wood too! Thanks for sharing!

  19. Fantastic! I’ve just bought one online, wish I’d seen this first!

  20. This is great! Thanks for posting such detailed pictures and info about where you got things. I think this would look perfect next to my front door…if only the thermostat wasn’t in the way! :)

  23. Found you on Stumble Upon a few weeks back, and just made a modified version of this today — it’s going to make a great birthday present for my mom next week! Thanks so much! :-)

  24. LOVE this! You’re a genius!

  25. Love it. Linked your project on my blog! http://backlessshirt.blogspot.com/2011/05/i-dig-on-these.html

  26. I Love this. I found some old fashion hot and cold knobs and I am going to put them above 2 hooks and use it in my new bathroom.

  27. love this idea very smart come see what I shared http://shopannies.blogspot.com

    This looks great! What size Mason jar did you use?

    • Shanty2Chic says:

      Mine are wide mouth pint jars. They are Kerr brand and I purchased them at Walmart. Hope this helps :-)

  29. That is so pretty!! I think it would make a really great statement at my front entryway.

  30. Ohhh–That is just BEAUTIFUL!! I love it! I have been looking for something cute for my entryway. this may be just the thing! Thanks for sharing it! (I popped over from One Pretty Thing)

  31. This project is amazing as always! I just featured you on my blog today. Here is the link:

  32. I love, love, love it! Thanks so much for sharing the how-to, I’ll be linking.

  33. What a sweet idea!!!

  34. What a neat idea! I love it!

  35. Lindy@ItsyBitsyPaper says:

    OMG this is fantastic! I love the way it turned out. What a great gift this would make.

    By still my heart–simplistic perfection! Definitely gorgeous in a bathroom. And your took great pictures–thank you!

  37. i WANT one of those. you did a great job.

  38. How did you hang it on the wall? Would it be secure enough to hang towels on? I love it, but would be nervous of accidentally pulling it off the wall when I grabbed a towel.

  39. I’m thinking about putting one of these in my pool house to hang towels. Of course, I will fill the jar with shells and sand dollars that we have found on the beach!

  40. I love the combo of the jar and the hooks on the same board. You could also do one to hang above it with all jars and fill with sand and candles for a beachy look for summer. Change out seasonally to other things like dark colored beans and candles for the fall, fake cranberries and candles for the winter, etc. Would be so cute!

  41. Love this. I’ve featured this post on Craft Gossip here:

  43. This is so romantically beautiful!

  44. looks awesome! Could have painted the hooks white as well;-)

  45. I’m totally doing this!
    I am starting my own linky party tomorrow! It’s the first one. I would love it if you would participate! It’s called $10 Tuesdays and it’s for things that cost less than $10 and take 20-30 mins (ish) to complete. I love inexpensive and quick projects and I’m guessing others will too ;) Thanks so much for considering.

  53. Love this!!

  54. Chelsea says:

    This is a cute idea. Did you use fake flowers or do you have to keep replacing the flowers all the time. Maybe this would be a cute idea with a candle in the jar?

    http://www.sothisisarmylife.blogspot.com

  55. I love this!! The little jar of flowers is the perfect touch. I recently started a link party on Sundays at A2D. I hope you’ll come link up!

  56. LOVE this Whitney!!! Thanks so much for sharing!

  57. This would be great for office supplies! Paper clips, rubber bands, and something else?! :-) Just add another mason jar on the other side! love it!

  58. Love this! What a wonderful idea.

  59. Christina says:

    WOW! I love it! We are redecorating our bathroom and I have everything but a way to hang my towels. This is beautiful and amazing! Thank you so much! I can paint this to match the rest of my bathroom, its great! Thank you Thank you!

  60. Oh, this is take-my-breath-away gorgeous! I just love it!!! I have a question, though, how do you keep it balanced? Did you have to put more than two hooks on the back?

    Aloha and thanks for the inspiration!

    Charlie

  61. Really cute…makes me happy too :) laurel@chippingwithcharm

  62. LOVE this! I’ve got some old barn wood that I needed to find a project for. This will be perfect! So excited to give this a shot. Thanks so much! = )

  63. Visiting from FJI. How beautiful! I would describe this as rustic Pottery Barn.

  64. I don’t know what I would use this for, but I will use it for something….. because it’s too beautiful to pass up!! Oh my. I’m in love.

  65. Oh my! this is just way too gorgeous!!!

  78. Achei a idéia genial e a aplicação dessa braçadeira para vidros conferiu requinte à peça; passou de um simples porta chaves a um romantico suporte para chaves, chapéus, guarda chuva etc… Parabéns
    Dolly

  79. WOW I love this! I just tweeted, pinned it, and stumbled it! Thanks so much!

  80. Wow! That is a really great idea! I love it.. <3

  81. Pretty cool. I would think a copper bracket around the jar might look a little more antique-ish but a good idea none the less.

  82. OMG I never know you could find the ring in the plumbing section! I had no idea what those things were or how they hung from these shelves. Thank you!!

  83. Looks great! I LOVE the paint job!!! can’t wait to see the directions on how to do it. I’ve been struggling with the distressed technique and can’t seem to get it to turn out right. Keep up the great work.

  84. This is so cute! I haven’t seen them before. I like Emily’s idea of a toothbrush holder for the bathroom.

  85. This is such a great idea! Would look great in the bathroom or back of a bedroom door to hang dressing gowns / bath robes on. Thanks for sharing!

  86. i just adore this-tfs!!

  87. I love this! My dear SIL has a vintage look in her decor and this screams to be done for her. I am shooting for a homemade Christmas this year. I will be making a couple of these. Thanks so much for sharing! I am linking to this on my blog: 4growingboys.blogspot.

  88. So cute!! I’m crushing all over this!!

  89. Hello cuteness!!!!

  93. Looks so easy and I’m digging the chippy paint job, can’t wait to find out the scoops on how to get ‘er done!

  94. It’s beautiful! I just love it and the paint technique….can’t wait to find out how to do it!
