Make a DIY Pendant Light from a Mason Jar
Got an old mason jar hanging around? Turn it into a pretty DIY pendant light with this video tutorial.
The ever-awesome Sorry Girls show you how to transform an old mason jar into a cute DIY lighting solution in this four-minute video. They use a light kid from IKEA, but if you don’t have an IKEA near you, you can find light kits on Amazon for under $10.
My favorite part of the tute below is their neat trick for punching a hole in the mason jar lid, so that you can fit the light kit through. No drill required! Check it out:
Are you reading this at work, where you can’t really watch the video? Don’t worry! We won’t tell. What we’ll do instead is provide the materials list, so you can hit the store on the way home and make this simpe DIY pendant light this afternoon!
