      Strange ingredient in bread recipe-rusticplanter1.jpg Create your own Rustic Wall planter from reclaimed wood, a couple old mason jars and a few household plants! This adorable planter makes a great gift as well . . .

      You'll Need:
      1 small section of board- entirely dependent on how many jars you want to have.
      1 Steel Hose Clamp (sz 3 1/126- 4" works great for pint & Quart Size Jars) If you're creating a small kitchen herb garden & prefer to use jelly jars, use 2 1/16 to 3" size
      A couple Screws
      A Hammer
      A screwdriver
      Patience
      Potting soil and a few cheap plants (the ones pictured were dug up from my front yard)

      First, get a section of board - the one pictured was actually pulled off an old wooden pallet. I wanted the edges to look a bit jagged, so I took a hammer and literally smashed the ends until they broke off.

      This is the hard part, you'll need to puncture the steel clamp with a screw or nail in order to screw it in place into the board. Here's how I did mine, take a screw, place it on the steel band, pound with a hammer until you make a hole.

      Once you've made a hole, screw it into the board where you want your jar to be. Repeat until you have place all of the bands on the board. Screw the board to the wall/ spot you wish to display the planter.

      Next, Put your filled mason jar in place and carefully screw the band closed. Do not overtighten as you may break your jar. A second pair of hands at this point is quite helpful.

      That's it! You now have a beautiful rustic planter using recycled/reclaimed items that you more than likely already had on hand. This entire project cost us $2.12 - by using the steel clamps, the jars can be switched out by simply loosening the clamp.

      This would make a wonderful compact kitchen herb garden using small jelly jars, or a super cute planter gift by filling the jars with potting soil and attaching seeds to each jar.

        I like this. Think I will try to find some containers for cacti. Cool how you can customize the sizes, & mix & match.

      Hmmm...my interpretation was that it meant recipes for people with 'chewing' issues after some sort of surgery... I've asked for clarification.

      This is in the wrong category. "J.A.W" means that it's a mix where you Just Add Water.
