1. Mark out the locations for your glass jars. Space them equally along the length of the board.

2. Use a 2mm drill bit to drill a small hole at the marked locations. Also drill a small pilot hole at the back of each clamp.

3. Line up the drilled hole in the clamp with the pilot hole in the board and secure the clamps onto the board.

4. Insert the recycled glass food jars into the clamps and tighten. Make sure to allow a space at the top if you are wanting to add lids to the containers.

GOOD TO KNOW: Use Rust-Oleum 2X or Metallic spray paint to dress up the lids for the glass jars.
