There are so many pretty light ideas on pinterest and I have posted several ideas on this blog too, but one of the things that has been missing is a truly step by step guide to making them. The first thing you will need to do before you can do anything else is to choose a suitable jar. As well as just using jars to create individual lights in a room, they can also be used with different types of bulbs. With all of the recent talk of the government regulating the sale of incandescent bulbs, we got to thinking, why not make our own light bulbs. MAKE offers a kit for making your own bulb that is more like a science project and teaches the basics of how a light bulb works. A fun science kit designed to excite and engage experimenters of all ages as they recreate the experiments that lead to the development of the first real light bulb.

Who would've thought an old pallet, some mason jars and a little bit of extension cord could turn into a one-of-a-kind light fixture and a work of art - AND cost less than $50 to create? Once you put the ends on the box, you are ready to start drilling holes where you want the cords to come out.
Then the fun part comes when you get to drill holes in the lids of the mason jars, thread the power cords through and attach the light socket.
Now, because my husband I are not electricians, we decided not to hard-wire this bad boy into the ceiling, because we weren't in the mood to burn our house down.
Next, attach all the bulbs and make sure everything works, before you anchor this into the ceiling. These easy Marimo moss ball DIY light bulb aquariums make a great home for tiny Japanese Marimo moss balls and are super cute as homemade Christmas gifts! To make your DIY light bulb aquarium begin by adding rocks or beads to the glass light bulb shaped bottle.
To care for your moss ball simply empty the water from the aquarium and replace with fresh water every 1-2 weeks and keep out of direct sunlight.

We wanted to create one of these chandeliers after seeing so many inspiring chandelier mason jar lights on Pinterest! We also didn’t give any information on the wiring or electrical aspect of this light fixture.
2) On two pieces of your wood, measure out five points with equal distance between them for your masons jar lights to hang and mark them off.
3) Drill holes down through the two pieces of wood on the marked points big enough to fit your wire through.


6) Cut your curtain rod extensions (You can use a hack saw or a soft metal cutter) to various sizes of your choice. 8) Take your mason jar lids and drill a hole in the center big enough for the nipples to fit through. 11) Pull the wires tight enough through the top of the wood so that the mason jar lids are flush with the bottom of your cut rods, and your rods are secure inside of your counter sink holes. 13) Pick where you want your chandelier to hang on the ceiling and find a secure stud to secure it to.

I am going to e-mail this to my husband to put in my request for one of these- so gorgeous! Brandi your home is really just gorgeous and I’m jealous of all of your DIY projects that turn out so well. I’m definitely saving this one – it looks like just the thing for our kitchen remodel!
I believe the Ball jars are quart sized, but I’m sure you could use different sizes if you wished to do so! I have had zero issues with my light, however, if we used higher wattage bulbs they would probably get hot and could become an issue. We have a VERY dim farmhouse, & we find with the amount of bulbs required it lights up the space perfectly. The weight of the light is held by the wood because the curtain rod is attached to the wood and the opposite end is threaded to the threaded coupler. Created by Katarina Britse at Beckman’s College of Design, this chandelier made from inflated surgical gloves looks wonderful. This will need to be big enough to accommodate the light bulb, make sure that this is the case before proceeding, otherwise you will end up wasting a lot of time. Use a pen or a soft pencil to trace around the light fitting so that you can see where it will be positioned. Try to get the holes as close together as possible since this will make it easier to remove the middle.
To stop anything overheating it’s important to punch some extra holes into the lid of the jar.
It’s possible to string a series of jar lamps together to create unique looking Christmas lighting. A friend of ours makes it sound like it’s not too difficult but to really make a functioning bulb that works in your home would be asking a lot. Build your own working light bulb using the included safety vacuum chamber and a number of different filament materials including carbon and tungsten.
I’m thinking that you could use a vacuum sealer connected to a mason jar with a modified lid that has the two wire leads entering through and sealed with epoxy. If all that wasn't enough, it's also super easy and will only take a single afternoon (about 2 hours) to complete.
I bought the ice cream shaped resin cabochons I used in these aquariums from DelishBeads on etsy. For more information on how to care for as well as revive ailing Marimo moss balls visit Aquaradise blog. You can also find me on G+, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or follow me on Blog Lovin’ and Tumblr. For moss balls, I usually just keep the water relatively clean and squeeze the ball out once a week.


The hardest part to source was definitely the curtain rod extensions, but you may be able to find another type of rod to substitute this. If you decide you want to make this light or a variation of it, I would love it if you would link back to this post and let me know! This will be the part attached to the ceiling and will determine how long your chandelier will be. Drill about four or five small holes around this to allow for circulation and prevent over heating. Be sure to watch them to make sure your jars don’t get hot to the touch, if they do you may want to use a lower wattage or smaller bulb, or even drill more holes in the lid. You did an amazing job (and I LOVE your ceiling, too!) SO pinning this and thanks for sharing your how-to. So thrilled to see how you did this, since I’ve been oogling it with interest since you posted the photos! Whenever you get around to it, be sure to send me a photo on my Facebook page – I would love to see how it turns out! I have two questions, what finish did you use on the wood and what size are the Mason jars ?
I would be thrilled if you had the chance to hop over to grab your button and bring some new projects to share:) Have a fabulous day! I am making one of these for our families cabin and someone told me that the old blue mason jars were flammable.
What’s more you probably already have almost all of the equipment and materials required to complete the project.
When the right types of bulb are used they are suitable for outdoor use, and don’t always require the ventilation holes. You know most fathers don't have that time with their kid, time for play, time for adventure and time for discovery. Also be sure to disconnect the power completely to the room you are installing or working on your light in! Then feed the wire through your cut curtain rod extensions pushing the curtain rod extensions into the sinkholes. I saw Amazon has a set of half gallon mason jars and s was wondering if you used that size. I don’t know if this is true or not, but apparently a chemical used to dye the jars blue is flammable. Alternate between your short and long rods per hole, and use opposite sizes on either side of the two pieces of wood. Don’t attach the jars to your lid, or the bulbs, until your light is secure on the ceiling to avoid breakage. I really love the blue and would prefer to use them and the new style blue jars are just not the same.
I’m gonna try it one more time with your tutorial and see if I get enough confidence to finally go for it!
However, all you need to do is gently squeeze the water out of the moss ball, cut in half then in half again, then gently roll into a ball in your hand.
