{diy} mason jar pendant light

Yesterday I took a photo of our clean kitchen and posted it on Instagram.

I was just happy to have it clean, but I had some questions about the mason jar pendants hanging above our counter.

So, here I am with my first {diy} post…I guess you could call it a tutorial, right?!

{I use the IKEA Hemma light kit, but you can find something similar in the lighting section at Lowes or Home Depot}

home is…personalizing your space.

UPDATE: I recently cleaned our mason jars and added some vent holes to the top by tapping extra holes in the lid with a hammer and nail.

    Steph, very cool! I have a whole box of old (vintage) mason jars that I’ve been waiting for a use for. I might have to try this one.

    How did you actually hang the pendant light from the ceiling? Did you cut the plug off and hardwire to box? Thanks.

  3. Dana says:

    I have been looking online and I cannot find the “light kit” like in your photo. Can you tell me where I can find these?

    How did you wire the lamp kits into the ceiling eletrical? Because the lamp kits come with plugs for eletrical outlets not the equipment to make a chandelier thing. Thank you.

    do you mind posting a picture (or e-mailing me a pic) of what the top looks like (where it’s connected to ceiling). We are wanting to do something similar in our kitchen, but can’t figure out the look we want on the top. Thanks!

    My mason jars keep getting REALLY hot and I’m afraid they are going to bust…..is that why you went back and tapped in vent holes?

    Hi, it looks like you have downrods on your pendants? It looks like you do and I am looking for some for some pendants I am making so the cords are covered. If so, where did you buy them?
