1.  Brush the wood off with a wire brush to uproot any dust and soil.  With a mallet and a metal punch (or a screwdriver, on the off chance that you don’t have a punch), punch an opening in the metal clip to make it less harder for the screw to go through (you will be boring it in step 3).  Make beyond any doubt you put a bit of wood underneath the metal, and punch the opening on the inverse side of where the cinch tightens. This will be the spot where the clip is screwed into the wood.
2. Measure and imprint where you might like the baby food containers to be put on the wood. Place a clip on your marking spot, with the part that you punched touching the wood. Drill the screw into the opening. Repeat with the greater part of the jugs.3. Place the containers inside each one cinch, and tighten again so the jugs are nice and cozy.

4. To hang the decoration, you will need to check where you need the two snares to go on the highest point of the wood. Drill an opening on each one side that is profound enough for the snare to experience. Twist each one guide into the opening until it is tight. String a bit of jute, twine, and so on through the snares, hitch each one end, and hang with a nail wherever you might like.We hung our own outside to spruce up an old shed. This might likewise look incredible on a yard, or inside the house.
