Happy Wednesday, Hunnis!
It wasn’t too long ago that we did our reno’s. In fact, it was only this past January and February when we freshened up the shop. Over the months, we’ve received many compliments on our new layout and we couldn’t be happier with the result.
One of the features of our reno’s is our light fixture that hangs above our main counter. Countless people have snapped pictures of this DIY project and asked us time and time again where did we get it and they are always so surprised and in awe when we tell them that the owners made it themselves! So, we thought we’d share with our Hunni’s just how we managed to make this great feature out of nearly nothing! Read on to see how you can replicate this great Mason Jar Light Fixture DIY!
To make your own Mason Jar Light Fixture, all it takes a few simple supplies and a little elbow grease!
What you’ll need:
- Mason Jar(s) with lids
- The socket you want to put the jar on (it’s okay if it’s on your wall or ceiling)
- A plastic or metal ring that fits your socket (to secure your jar lid to the socket)
- A nail or wood screw
- A pen, pencil, or marker
- A hammer
- A flat-tipped screwdriver
- Tin snips
1. You start by tracing the circumference of your socket on the jar lid. Center it as best as possible.
2. Place the lid on top of the metal ring and tap a hole in the outlined circle with a hammer and nail.
3. Use your tin snips to cut out the outlined circle.
4. Once you’ve cut out the hole, place the ring around the top.
5. Fit your socket through the lid. (If your socket doesn’t fit – use the pliers to bend back any metal that is in the way).
6. Attach your socket ring (this is to hold your socket in place)
7. Add your light bulb and add to jar.
Your finished project may look something like this:

Remember! There are many different ways and interpretations of this project. From chandeliers to pendant lights, you can use mason jars in any way you please! Also, if you like our light fixture with the different bulbs, you can purchase the small circular globe lights at Target!
