Hey friends!

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!

This one will be for our Meme!

This is beyond easy to make!  You can click HERE or the photo below to get the full set of FREE printable plans!

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!

  1. OMG! I am in love with this! How cute would it be to have a little window box with mason jars in it? I’m thinking herb garden. You have just made my day!

  2. Where did you buy the screen door pulls (handles)… I can’t find them anywhere cheap! (And I LOVE yours!)

  3. Bought all the stuff today. My 13-year old son is excited to whip these up for his mom and her friends! Thank for the great idea.

  4. Wonderful project! Question though…do you need to put holes on the bottom to Derain the water? Do flowers/herbs or anything else growing stay long? I’ve seen herbs in jars but not sure hoe to do the water thing! Thanks for all your great projects!

  5. I absolutely LOVE every little thing you do!!! I just went to buy the lumber, handles and nails for this project and am going to start today! Now…I am waiting patiently for how you achieved that wonderful finish! Thanks so much for sharing. 🙂 Have a glorious day!!

  6. You have a lot of great ideas. This one makes a perfect gift for anyone, especially someone who loves to garden. A lot of your projects seem pretty easy to follow. I’ve been following your blog for a bit and have been enjoying each project that you post. You seem to know a lot about woodworking. Have you taken a course previously or is this something you have learned to do yourself?
