Mason jar chandelier

I wanted a mason jar chandelier, but did not like the prices so my husband made me one for around $30. we went to a local flea market and found the actual light fixture

for $20. We had to make sure that the metal plates under the candles were big enough to hold the jars. purchased the large mouth mason jars at wal mart for $10. we then painted the light fixture, epoxied the metal rings for the jars in the plates under the candles. all toghether less than $32

    Dee make sure to plates under the candles are big enough to hold the size jar you want to use.

    angela s. we only used the metal twist on part of the lid, not the solid metal insert.
