Steps to make a mason jar light kit
It’s so simple! You literally just screw in the bulb and screw on your mason jar.
First, attach the light bulb to the pendant light kit. Then, attach the light kit to your mason jar and you are done!
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.
If you want to add more color to a room, try colored mason jars for a different effect.
I hung my mason jar light in my craft room. I just used a hook on the ceiling to hang the pendant light.
