Doesn’t that light look awesome?!!! Last night after we put the kids to bed Jason helped me create this beautiful Ball jar light. for our basement hallway. It was so simple to do and QUICK (only took about 10 minutes)! Ha! It took more time deciding which Ball jar I wanted to use than making the light :). All you need is a Ball jar, a lid, a basic sconce light, and a tool to cut the lid (we used Jason’s handy-dandy rotozip…similar to a Dremel).
Here is the wall sconce we bought at Lowes a few months ago to replace the light that was here previously. At $18.98 it definitely is a good deal:). Click here for the link.
Here is what we did to add the Ball jar to the wall sconce:
First using a butter knife, Jason pull out the milk glass insulator at the top of our old zinc lid. Any Ball jar lid would work. If you didn’t have an old lid use a new one:)….it would probably be easier to cut!
Jason then traced the threaded piece that holds the lamp shaped in to the light.
He then cut the opened with his Rotozip drill while I held down the jar.
The we put it on the sconce and screwed on the threaded shade holder.
Add your light bulb (I definitely want to add an Edison bulb soon). Make sure the bulb will fit inside your jar! This was our first Ball jar choice we later decided the vintage blue looked better:). This pic was taken at about 10:30 last night… I was determined to get this done! Ha!
Figure out what Ball jar looks best (I chose a vintage blue one and screw it on!) Done!
