How to Make Mason Jar Lights
Yes, just three simple supplies. And a super simple tutorial as well. In fact, you can see just how to make a mason jar light in the video below.
So simple right? You literally just screw in the bulb and screw on your mason jar. CAUTION: I used a very low wattage bulb to prevent the jar from getting too hot. You can also get open bottom mason jars that help let the heat escape. You can even try cutting the bottoms off of the jar yourself.
I hung my mason jar light in my craft room. I just used a hook on the ceiling to hang the pendant light.
