Paint Wood Board

Spray top and sides of wood plank with spray paint, and allow to dry completely. Flip and repeat for bottom side. Add second coat, if needed.

Add Hardware

Screw eye hooks into wood board at each corner — six inches from each end of the board and one inch in from sides.

Secure Mason Jars

Measure and mark desired placement of jars, making them equal distance from each other. Using a hot glue gun, make a circle of glue approximately the size of the bottom of the jar and attach a jar. Repeat for each one.
