Mason Jar Lamp Tutorial

Happy Wednesday Friends… we’re half-way to the weekend! 

Today I’ve got a great tutorial on how to make this cute mason jar lamp.  I actually made this years before I started blogging, but since I’m updating the lamp I thought I’d share.

Supplies needed:

Mason Jar

Drill with a large drill bit

Lamp lighting kit

You can purchase a lamp lighting kit at your hardware store or online.

Drill a hole in your mason jar lid that is large enough to slide the base of the light socket through it.

Slip the mason jar ring and the decorative base over the end of the socket.

Slip the mason jar lid on and follow with the washer and nut.

Attach the mason jar lid to the jar and twist on your mason jar ring.

This lamp is in my oldest daughter’s bedroom.  I updated the base with seashells to fit in her beachy bedroom.
