Mason jar chandelier

11.13.14
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

    No worse than Mason jar wineglassess...Mason jars glued to candlesticks to make what they call "Redneck wineglasses".

    I made one too! Got the fixture for $12 at the ReStore(Habitat for Humanity) Painted it black. Bought Mason Jars for $12. I epoxied the lids down, but they still didn't seem sturdy enough. My fixture had lacy like metal sides that came up around

    How do you disperse the heat buildup from the bulbs?

    the bulbs are only 40 watt. I have yet to have a problem with heat building up.

    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.

    patricia w thanks for the comments. just wanted to add that we also used a drill bit designed to drill glass to let any heat build up escape.

    I have wondered about using the spiral fluorescent bulbs. Do they put off less heat? Sheri S
