I have added a new post about my wall planter that answers a lot of the questions I have been getting.
I have been canning peaches so I had mason jars on the brain. I have seen several versions of this idea. I have seen them used on coat racks, for bathroom stuff and for craft supplies. So since I was needing another nature decor item for my hallway I thought, why not use them as planters??? I hung them in my hallway.
I have always wanted to put a shelf or something on this wall but since it is the hallway and there is a lot of traffic, I was worried things would get bumped and fall off.
*Rocks or gravel for drainage
I made sure and picked plants that were meant for medium light and that didn’t grow super fast. I don’t want to have to transplant them for awhile.
I got a scrap piece of wood and laid the clamp on it. I got a nail that was about the size of the screw I would be using, and then hammered the nail into one of the slits in the clamp. It forced the slit in the clamp open so I could then screw it to the barn wood board.
I screwed the clamps to the board.
Then I screwed the board to the wall. When the jars are added they will hide the screws used to attach it to the wall.
Add rocks to the bottom of the jar. Add a little potting soil and then the plant. Add more potting soil around the plant.
While I held the jar in place I tightened the clamp. Those babies aren’t going anywhere!
