Barn Board Jar Holders

Here are a few Mason jar holders I just made from 1" thick barn board.

I left the angle that was on the ends of my boards at the top and then cut the lower ends straight across.

The bottom piece fits into a rabbet at the lower edge of the back piece.

I have routed out a circular area, about half the thickness of the wood which allows a mason jar to sit into it.

I made three of these, two are 15 3/4" high x 5 3/4" wide, the one just above with a flatter angled top is 13 1/4"  h x 5 1/2" wide.  They are all coated with tung oil and there is a sawtooth hanger on the back.  I wrap the top of the jar with twine and hot glue it on.

  1. Ah! I was just planning on making something exactly like this! I hosted a candle party a couple of nights ago, and they had something similar in their magazine... and a current customer pointed it out and asked me to make some for her! Love yours, beautiful job!!


  2. What a great little tutorial and project! I feel like I could even try this and make it work:) Thanks for linking up!

  3. This is a great project Julie! :) I love the simplicity of it.

    super job!

  4. I'm always looking for new ways to use old barn wood. I've got stacks of the stuff around here. And I love using mason jars for candles and flowers. ;)

    Thanks for linking to Time Travel Thursday again.
