Ash and I got to thinking about Mother’s Day the other day.  We came up with something super cute, quick, and of course CHEAP!  Woohoo!

Mason Jar Planter Box Free Plans

Here are the supplies you need…

Total cost for materials???

First attach your 12″ pieces together like this…

We used Gorilla Wood Glue and finish nails.

Now add your 2 1/2″ ends like this…

Now it’s time to finish it! We decided to ‘shanty’ ours up a bit!

You like the finish?  It was super simple and you will be surprised to see what we used!  I will share that in a next post!

Now for the screen door pulls (or any handle you like)…

Put one in each end!  That’s it!

Now just add your flowers in your mason jars!  We chose these great Asiatic Lily’s for ours!  Meme loves flowers and bright colors, so these are a win-win!

What do you think???

Are you thinking what we are?? Shanty yet OH SO CHIC at the same time?? 😉

We think she will love it!  This is a great way to personalize flowers for someone!  It can also be reused over and over for so many thing!

And in case you missed it… $8 for supplies?!?  Yes please!

We would love for you to share the love and PIN it below!  Thanks so much for everything guys!  Have a great day!

    I’m pro journal in general — be it written, visual or both. A good chunk of our life happens online in this day and age… we are surrounded by technology — exploring the physical side of journaling / documenting can be therapeutic for that reason as well.

    This looks like an easy and super cute diy project. Do you use Sketchup for your design plans? They are so crisp and clear, thanks!

    Great Idea!- to make it even more fun grow mom a TickleMe Plant in the mason jars. They are live plants that will close their leaves and lower their branches when she tickles them. Just search TickleMe Plant to see a live one
