DIY Mason Jar Light!

725,988 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!
I needed just a little more light on the screen porch and thought I'd try to do one with everyone's favorite thing: the Mason Jar!
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.
