Supplies for Mason Jar Organizer
Here’s what you’ll need for this project.
- 8, 12, or 16oz. mason jars
- Hose clamps (found in the plumbing section of any home store or online)

- Wood Stain (I used the color “Jacobean”)
- Picture hanging kit
- Titanium Drill Bits
Mason Jar Organizer – Project Steps
These are the hose clamps. I had never heard of them until this project, so do not be afraid! Just ask someone at your local home improvement store to point you in the right direction, and buy a size that will fit around your mason jars. You’ll find these in the plumbing aisle.
Okay so now that you’ve got all of your supplies, it’s time to stain the wood.
So stain it up and let your wood fully dry.
Then get out that power drill of yours. Okay, now I’m not gonna lie. At this point, I was on a roll and I was all ready to finish this project and get it on the wall. However, I did run into a few troubles. Here are my tips so you can avoid any mistakes.
Rookie Tip #1: Use a drill bit to get a pilot hole started in the wood, where you’ll eventually screw in the hose clamp.
Rookie Tip #2: Also use the drill bit to make a hole in the hose clamp. You’ll definitely need to put your back into it, because it can be difficult to create a hole in the metal.
After you’ve created the hole in the wood and the hole in the hose clamp, line them up, and screw the hose clamp into the wood.
Repeat 3 more times until all hose clamps are attached.
To hang this bad boy, I just nailed in 2 picture hangers on the backside of the wood.
I am loving the way it turned out! It’s farmhouse chic to me, not to mention it stores all kinds of bathroom goodies.I think this mason jar organizer would work great just about anywhere. Maybe in your kitchen for knives, forks, and spoons? Perhaps in a craft room to hold pencils, scissors, and glue? The possibilities really are endless.
This same mason jar organizer could even add some serious freshness to your kitchen, patio or city balcony.
