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:

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.

      I have a lot of small lamps you use the lightbulb after you place the shade on you screw the lightbulb in it holds the shade in place if you don’t have a small lamp you can get the small lampshade at a dollar general or any type of store similar pick one up for 5$ or less hope this helps

    I love this idea. I am going to make this for my kitchen and use either whole coffee beans or wine corks in place of the shells. Thank you.

    Hello, thank you for sharing your tutorial. I love the idea. I found a box full of mason jars last weekend at a yard sale and I was looking for some ideas to use them for crafts. And I stumbled upon your blog. I have included a link to your page from mine. I do hope that is ok. If not please let me know I will have it removed. Thank you again for the great post!
    Kind regards,
