Creating A Mason Jar Centerpiece From Old Barn Wood Or Pallets

With the garden all planted and growing, and a little bit of extra time before the heavy picking and canning season begins - we thought today would be a great time to focus on an easy DIY project using old barn or pallet wood.
Mary had been wanting a centerpiece for our barn table at the farm - and with the table measuring 12' long - the hardest part was to come up with something that could fill the space and still look like it belonged. The answer came in the form of some left over barn wood and a few mason jars.
The best part about this project is that you can create it in less than an hour using some simple scraps of barn wood or pallets. We built ours to be 48" long and with 5 mason jars evenly spaced to fit the long table - but you can adjust the final length to accommodate whatever size you need.
Now we have an easy to use centerpiece carrying on our barn theme that can hold fresh-cut flowers, candles - or whatever is in season.
Here is what we used to make it:
