Hanging Herb Mason Jars

Sharing is caring!

Today I’m sharing a fun kitchen update, my Hanging Herb Mason Jars.  I love fresh herbs!  They just make everything taste, well… fresher.   I love some fresh chives on top of my baked potato… or adding fresh basil to my pasta sauces or the top of my homemade pizza.  So when I came across a steal of a deal on some fresh herbs I scooped them up… and created the perfect place for them without taking up any counter space.

I added some wire to some vintage blue and green mason jars so they could hang. I found using plyers made this easy.

  1. Started by eyeballing how much wire you need to go around the neck of the mason jar.  Then I doubled it before cutting the piece of wire.
  2. Starting at the center of the wire, wrap the wire around the neck of the mason jar.
  3. Now twist the wire around it’s to make it snug around the mason jar neck. (I twisted it about 3 times)
  4.  Now the remainder of the wire, you want to join the two ends together, so you are creating a loop in order to hang.
  5. Twist the ends together at least 5-6 times, so it’s nice and snug.
  6. Repeat until you have all your hanging mason jars completed.

I recommend filling the base of your mason jar with gravel or small seashells, so the water has a drain off area.

Then it’s just time to add your favorite herb.

I had the perfect place to hang them on either side of my kitchen sink… lots of afternoon sunlight… just perfect.

So I added some hooks to outside of the kitchen cabinets and hung the herb mason jars on them.

They have been very easy to maintain too.  I water my small herb garden about 2 times a week, sometimes 3 if it’s a really hot week.

  1. You are very creative! Thanks for sharing your wonderful ideas!
    I have seen the colored Mason jars. Where did you find them?

    1. You could try. I’m not sure how much weight a command hook can hold. You could weight it and see if it’s light enough.
