  • Decide where you want to hang your planter. Hammer two long nails in the exact spot where you want it.
  • Drill two deep holes into the back of your wood. 
  • Open the pipe clamp and let it lie flat on top of the wood as you screw it in place. Screw it tightly.
  • Get a large nail that's about the same size of your screw then hammer it through the hole that you pre-drilled. You should have a hole where you can easily screw the pipe clamp into the wood.
  • Insert the mason jar and tighten the clamp.
  • Repot your succulents accordingly. Since the jar does not have holes at the bottom, make sure you add pebbles so water can flow freely. Click here for more repotting tips.

RL Tip: Consider placing your hanging mason jar planter by the window in the kitchen for a charming touch.
