{31 days} mason jar pendant light

This is actually an update to one of my most popular posts of all time as well as one of my most pinned posts on Pinterest.

We had existing pendant lights in our kitchen, and I was getting tired of the shades so I cut some holes in mason jar lids and used the mason jars as “shades”.

After posting a photo of my kitchen on Instagram, I decided to write my first ever tutorial for a mason jar pendant light!

{I find my light kits at IKEA, but you can find something similar in the lighting section at Lowes or Home Depot}

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: After noticing that air needed to be vented from the jar somehow, I added some vent holes to the top by tapping extra holes in the lid with a hammer and nail.

{diy} mason jar pendant light

Yesterday I took a photo of our clean kitchen and posted it on Instagram.

I was just happy to have it clean, but I had some questions about the mason jar pendants hanging above our counter.

So, here I am with my first {diy} post…I guess you could call it a tutorial, right?!

home is…personalizing your space.

UPDATE: I recently cleaned our mason jars and added some vent holes to the top by tapping extra holes in the lid with a hammer and nail.
