Mason Jar Lamp

I am lucky enough to have a collection of aqua blue mason jars from our wedding that we used for the centerpieces. I love finding crafty projects that inspire me to find new uses for things I already have :)

{great book I borrowed from the library}

{their version}

{my version filled with seashells}

Here are the instructions from the book :

you'll need:
push-thru side out socket
25 watt or lower lightbulb
1"of threaded rod
check ring with 3/8"diameter
1"diameter rubber washer
mason jar
clip on lamp shade
drill and 3/8" diameter drill bit

1. Drill a hole into the center of the jar's lid.
2. Put your threaded rod through the hole. However high you want the bulb to be from the lamp's base is how much threaded rod you should leave above the lid.
3. From the top side of the lid, screw your push-thru side out socket onto the threaded rod.
4. Place your rubber washer on the threaded rod on the underside of the lid, then screw on your check ring. Make sure to tighten the ring to keep everything in place.
5. Fill the jar
6. Screw on the lid. You should be left with the socket pointing upward.
7. Place in your lightbulb and clip on your lampshade.

My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no back up.
