Mason jar lamp

 

 

 

Hey everyone 🙂

I had a long and relaxing weekend, after five days of intense work requiring mind grease. And as Monday flashed on my calender, a lot of craft ideas came rushing into my head, clouding it to the extent of, blocking everything else out. I wandered in the labyrinth of creativity for almost two days, until I could take no more. And last night, I made this lamp out of an unused mason jar. It took me about an hour to finish the project. Its pretty easy, despite its contradictory appearance :).

Here is a step by step guide.

Step 1

Take a plastic bottle cap and wind jewellry wire around it,twisting the ends and securing them.

Take two equal lengths of wire and straighten them. Make loops at both ends. Engage one end with the wire around the bottle cap and secure.

Step3

Join the free ends of the vertical pieces of wire, with a horizontal wire having loops at its ends.

Now start painting the mason jar.

Step 4

Let the paints dry. Paint multiple coats, if required. Then place a small candle on the bottle cap and insert it into the mason jar.
