Welcome Planting Season with Garden Inspired Crafts and DIY Projects

Join us in welcoming spring with gardening and planting projects

A mason jar bird feeder can be made in minutes with twine and bird seed.

It’s official! Spring has finally sprung. We’re pretty thrilled to say the least, and can’t wait to get started with gardening and planting projects. Join us in welcoming spring with some DIY projects and crafts using flowers, herbs and more.

The Prudent Garden

First is one of our favorite Ball® jar lid upcycle garden projects: the plant label! This project is great for avid canners looking for ways to repurpose their used lids. You can design your own labels or use one of the templates from The Prudent Garden. These are adorable for the garden and only take a handful of materials to make.

Domestically Speaking

We think fresh herbs can make all the difference in a nice home-cooked meal. If you’re tight on space for growing herbs at home, this DIY project is the perfect fix. These herb mason jars are hung on hooks on the side of kitchen cabinets – not taking up any counter space and perfectly placed where sun can reach them through the kitchen sink window. Use Ball® Blue Collection Elite jars for an extra pop of color.

Home Road

You can get really creative with this project for DIY spring topiary trees. Grab a greenery ball from your local craft store and then add your choice of moss, sticks and more to fill out the space above the Styrofoam. You can also paint and/or distress your jar any way you like!

Little House Living

This one might not be placed directly in your garden, but it’s still an adorable backyard idea. A mason jar bird feeder can be made in minutes with twine and bird seed. Place on your favorite tree where you can view from your window!

Shanty 2 Chic

Finally, this mason jar planter box will look great whether indoors or out! All you need is a few small pieces of wood, glue, three Ball® jars and a couple of handles. We love the distressed look bloggers Whitney and Ashley gave their planter. The project is so versatile and can be reused over and over as you choose to rotate with different flowers.
