Are you sick of looking at your plain, boring bathroom light fixture? I know I definitely was, especially when one of the glass shades broke and we didn’t get around to fixing it for months! I just couldn’t bring myself to spend money to replace something I didn’t even like. Finally I came across some gorgeous mason jar lights for sale but they were well over $100! I started thinking they couldn’t be that hard to make, and enlisted the help of my husband to turn them into a DIY project. This project can be a bit tricky with the wiring, please be careful and exercise caution.

To start the project you need to remove the light fixture from the wall. Then you are going to tape around the areas you don't want getting painted. Next you can spray paint your light fixture the colour of your choosing.

You will then draw a circle on the mason jar lid, using the ring from the current light fixture. Following this you will use a hammer and nail, or drill to cut out the circle.

Finally you will put the mason jar lids onto the existing light fixture socket, and put it back up on the wall. Then just screw in light bulbs and mason jars and you're done! You now have a beautiful new light fixture that you created!
