DIY Mason Jar Caddy and YouTube Video!

Hey guys!

We combined our love of mason jars, storage and wood to make this cutie right here!  First, check out the video to see how we made our DIY Mason Jar Caddy!

How fun is that?


Super easy build guys!

HERE are the FREE PLANS!  Just CLICK HERE to download and print yours!  Here are the overall dimensions for our caddy.  You can make your middle boards longer to make yours wider if you want!


The supply list and cut list are super short on this one!


We started by joining our 2×4 together and drilling the holes for the rope.


Next we used our Kreg Jig to drill holes in our 3 smaller boards.

Kreg Jig Pocket Holes

Next, we used 2.5″ pocket hole screws to attach the small boards to the two larger ones.


Final step!

We used our nailer and wood glue to attach the small front pieces to keep the jars on the shelves!


Done and done.

We used a really pretty grey stain by Varathane called Carbon Gray.

How easy is that?  And, you can use them to organize or decorate just about anything!

    We built this mason jar caddy and found it takes more than 2 ft of rope. Probably more like 3ft. Otherwise there’s not enough slack when hanging it up.

    Nice… this is also a nice rack for succulents… or herbs… 😀

    I absolutely love this! I’m moving from Alaska to Arizona in a few months and leaving all of our furniture behind…which means I get to build all new stuff:) Your blog has given me lots of inspiration. I want to make 3 of these caddy to hang all next to each other outside.

    Where did you get that feather hook? I can’t find any good looking hooks anywhere that can actually hold a little weight.

    Always use wood conditioner on soft wood prior to staining. It prevents the stain from absorbing unevenly and looking blotchy.

      The Varathane stain that we use does not require and wood conditioner.

        What would be a great way to restain something in a different color? I have a dark espresso ladder and would love for it to go this color.
