Today’s project is one of those great quick-and-easy ones that you can personalize in any way you like. Crafting with mason jars isn’t a new idea – but you may not know just how many things you can make with canning jars. Today, I’m going to show you how easy it is to turn a mason jar into a lamp!
- Canning Jar (I used a 32-oz wide-mouth jar because that’s what size I have on my craft shelf right now, but a different size will yield a different look.)
- Canning Jar Lamp Adapter (they are also available in a small mouth size)
- Small Lamp Shade (and a bulb, of course)
- Filling of Your Choice – (I used a bag of whole coffee beans, but the sky is the limit for filling your jar!)
But this project can accommodate any theme: seashells and sand could be added for a beachy or nautical look, fill it with floral pebbles, marbles, buttons, or craft supplies for your craft room, add colorful candies, leave it empty, dye it, wrap it with twine – or you could even make your own terrarium or humidity garden in there! You can also change the contents to match the season, if you enjoy seasonal home decor!
