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.
