$4 Mason Jar Light Fixture Update

DIY 03.12.15
I'm in the middle of a bathroom makeover with a mere $100 budget. I spent just $3.87 to update my light fixture by swapping out the dated glass globes with mason jars. The easy 15 minute tutorial is on my blog at Two It Yourself.

    I think this idea would also work when remodeling a kitchen into a country kitchen. If you have a bar with overhead lights, they would look good over the bar.

    Would you put holes in the mason jar due to the heat? How would you do this without breaking the mason jars?

    To avoid the heat problems use those energy saving bulbs that stay cool.
