Build: diy mason jar carrier
Gifts made from wood scraps perfect for teacher appreciation day, Mother's Day or a party centerpiece.
These diy mason jar carriers with a copper handle are easy to assemble and so versatile.
And mason jars can hold lots of things, not just flowers! How about pencils, markers and craft supplies?
I used half pint mason jars for this project.
Just in time for teacher appreciation day!
I printed a personalized tag for each teacher and tied it to the center mason jar.
The handle is 3/4" copper piping with a wood dowel on the interior.
I love the contrast of the shiny metal against the distressed wood.
Another variation, a single mason jar carrier. This jar is a standard pint size found at most craft and grocery stores.
