Rustic Wood Crate Mason Jar Centerpiece for Spring

This Rustic Wood Crate Mason Jar Centerpiece is an easy build project that’s perfect for special occasions or on a farmhouse kitchen table.

The thing about taking such a long blogging break, even if it’s for an illness like mine was, is you can get used to it – too used to it – and that can make you kind of lazy, or at least it did with me.  I got used to binge-watching Netflix and not even thinking about working on a project for more than two months.  

Now that I’m feeling much better, it’s time to buckle down and get back to work.

We’ve had a couple beautiful days when the sun was shining and the weather was fairly warm.  It made me want to get out and work in my garden, but it’s much too early for that yet.  

Instead, I worked on an easy mason jar centerpiece to display flowers on my kitchen table.

Scrap wood was used to build a simple crate long enough  to hold five mason jars.  It could be built to hold less jars or more, but I had five, so that’s what I went with.

It was very easily constructed with just small nails used to join the boards.   I stained the crate and it was finished!

  1. I think it would work well as a desk caddy for pencils, pens, rulers and such. Thanks for the inspiration….bring on Spring!

  2. ColleenB.~ Tx. says

    Very lovely.
    I think for a romantic or even a non-romantic feel; can use floating or non floating candles in the jars or when having a large gathering or even small gathering; could hold your flatware

  3. Its gorgeous Angie! Glad you’re back!

  4. I’m glad to hear you’re feeling much better..I’m sure the brighter weather helps! 🙂 I think this sweet crate might work with a cloth and a long-ish narrow bread (like a French Baguette) as an edible centerpiece. 🙂

  5. I’m glad you are feeling better Angie!
    Nice piece, I think it will also look good as a single jar holder attached to the piece of wood. You have those posted before, i just pictured it with flowers.
    Ps Love your work, it’s very inspiring…thank you!

  6. So glad that you are feeling better, Angie! That is a darling wooden crate! Thanks for sharing!

  7. glad you’re feeling better and that your back making projects!

  8. I.m glad you are feeling better, Angie! I remember how hard it was to get back into blogging after my long recuperation from knee replacement last year. Working on small projects is a good way to get back in the game. I love the mason jar holder! I’ll bet it would be a pretty utensil holder, too…wooden spoons…

  9. I am so thankful you are feeling better. I have the spring itch to be digging in the garden, too. I never tire of the blue Mason jars especially when they have daisies in them. I’ve been thinking about doing something like this for my silverware.

    Pretty…….so glad you are feeling better!

    You inspire me to get something done. So glad you are making progress on your wellness journey.

  12. You are back!!!! Yay!!! I can think of all kinds of uses, great for holding long top heavy things to store since the crate will keep the jar from tipping. Flowers and ? Maybe fondue forks?

  13. Love that look Angie. Glad you are feeling better and feel like doing some projects. I have not done much for the past two years and will be so hard to get started back to blogging and doing projects. Mr. Z. is feeling some better and I am finding a little free time now. Keeping you in my prayers.
    Hugs, Audrey Z.

    So glad your healing is progressing, Angie.

    I think the box could be used for plants or for candles, as well as the flowers. At Holiday time you could fill it with greens and bottle brush trees and those tiny, battery-operated lights. Or with pine cones. A versatile little box with all kinds of possibilities. Pumpkins at Halloween, too!

    I love wood boxes! And even more with daisies and other flowers!
    I caught a snippet one other post about you having a stroke. Im terribly sorry and pray crafting and diy-ing helps your recovery. How long ago was your stroke? I feel like I’m living in a cave not to have realized you weren’t posting.
