A lot of people have viewed mason jars as just a glass container for canning purposes at home. To be honest, there was a time when I too am guilty of believing mason jars are limited for this function.
Now I think that’s just unfair because these things have a multitude of use in the crafting world. Everything about a mason jar is appealing from its shape to its different colors, and it can be used in almost all parts of our beloved home.
This time, we’ll use mason jars in a unique and elegant project that takes it out of the glass container category into one of the most beautiful chandelier ideas in crafting. What do you think about a DIY chandelier made of mason jars?
Mark and drill the mason jar lid where you will insert the light socket.
Pry out the middle and bend the sharp edges. Do this the rest of the mason jar lid.
Paint all visible parts of the mason jar lid.
Don’t Want To Make It? You Could BUY ONE HERE… But isn’t DIY more fun!?
Sand and stain afterward.
Drill holes that are the same size as the wire for the lights.
Assemble the mason jar with its wire and set the light to your desired length.
Glue the wires to keep them in place.
Use a wire connector to connect the wires in every light.
Plug in to check if all wirings are working. (NOTE: you can use lamp wiring instead of Ikea wire)
Measure the distance from the light to where you will be putting the chandelier.
Mark the wood and drill the holes. Use a drill bit to connect the wooden panel on the ceiling.
And there you have it! A gorgeous homemade Mason Jar Chandelier!
