Industrial Mason Jar Light

16,786 Views
I created an industrial Mason jar light fixture for above my kitchen sink. I got these Mason jars from my husband's grandmother about 25 years ago and have used them in my kitchen ever since. I thought this was a fun way to use them. http://froufrugal.blogspot.com/2011/11/mason-jar-light.html

    Creative brave. I don't think I would do this kind of wiring myself, but it looks like you knew what you were doing.

    I think I would have some kind of vent for the HOT air created by the lights ... either in the lid of the Mason jars or slots in the glass , done with an abrasive wheel on a drill. But, they DO look very nice.

    Douglas, I had planned to put vents in, but I wanted to see how hot they got first. Even after being on for several hours, there is no real discernible heat to the touch of the glass. I have low wattage bulbs in, so if I had higher wattage, a couple of vents would be a good idea.

    I love these! May steal this idea. It seems to me that the light would appear brighter because of the glass surrounding it. just an observation. thanks for showing us your masterpiece :)
