How to make Hanging Herb Jar Garden

1). First cut six equal sized squares of  wood. Jig or punch out large holes in the  center in which your mason jars can rest.
NOTE: You’ll need to find jars that are  wider at the top than in the middle.

2). Next drill two other holes on either  side through which your threaded rod can  slide.

3). Feed the rods (with washers and bolts)  through each of the wood pieces, making  sure to twist the bolts to the desired locations.
NOTE: If you place the rod inside a cordless  drill where the bit normall goes and hold  the bolt with your fingers, you can then pull  the trigger on your drill to fasten the bolt more quickly than doing it by hand.
4). Line each jar with small rocks to give  the roots enough space to breathe in lieu  of drainage holes.
5). Position the plants inside the jars, with  the metal lid rim fastened on top, and  rest them into place on each wood panel.
6). Then attach metal cables from the top  shelf to eye hooks in your ceiling, so the  planter can be hung at just the desired  height.
