Begin by adding some aquarium rocks to the bottom of your mason jars. Fill the bottom 1/4 of each jar with your rocks.
Hot glue the end of some jute twine to one side of the threaded area at the top of the jar.
Begin wrapping the twine around the jar 3-4 times.
Once you’ve wrapped the twine a few times, secure the end with another drop of hot glue.
Tie a knot to cover the drop of the hot glue.
Then, move up about 3-4 inches and tie another triple knot.
Thread on three wood beads.
Tie another triple knot on the other side of the beads to hold them into place.
Then, move down another 3-4 inches and tie a final knot. Use some hot glue to secure this knot into place on the opposite side of the jar. You’re going to use this piece of twine to hang your mason jar, so make sure each end is glued to opposite sides of the jar.
Continue wrapping more twine around the threads until the knots are covered.
Secure the final end of the twine with some additional hot glue.
Simply place your air plant into the jar and hang it anywhere in the house where you want to see it!
