DIY Mason Jar Light!

720K Views
When I finished our Screen Porch Makeover I thought I had plenty of light with the outdoor chandelier but I was wrong! I like to have my quiet time on the porch before the sun comes up and there just wasn't enough light to read. So I came up with the absolute easiest light in the world using everyone's favorite thing, Mason Jars! Adding some tiny white lights, twine wire, burlap ribbon and a great wall hook and in just minutes my comfy chair had the perfect light to read before daybreak!

Using grapevine twine wire, I made hangers for the widemouth jars (full tutorial on my blog).

I added back the twist tops without the lids to keep the wire in place.

I found this rustic swinging set of hooks from Hobby Lobby--they were perfect for hanging the light!

Adding a bit of burlap ribbon to a couple of the jars helped lengthen them, creating a cluster shape. The burlap also softens the look.

The Husband attached an adapter to our existing porch light, making the lights controllable from a switch--but you could easily use an extension cord. This makes a perfect light for my early morning quiet time reading.

    I love the look. I'm going to make this project and add them at the top of our swing so it will give us a soft light but not as bright as a porch light. I think I'm going to make a set for my parents on their wrap around porch. They would be

      You could just use an extension cord, camouflage the cords with cheap chain or faux vines (such as grape), and hang them from cup hooks even.

    Thank you for the ideas. I'm looking forward to making some for our patio\deck out back . These would look cute in red,blue or green for the holidays and hand them on the front door.
