Pinterest Challenge: Mason Jar Lamp

For those of you who like to read blogs, especially those about home decorating, etc., you may have heard about the Pinterest Challenge. It was initiated by Young House Love and a few other bloggers. It's not sponsored by Pinterest- but it's meant to get people actually doing the things they've been pinning on Pinterest!

So, we decided to participate in this fall's edition of the Pinterest Challenge! We actually have a couple of projects that we'll share in three different posts.

The first one is this DIY lamp we found on Pinterest. We immediately thought it would look great in our kitchen! The picture below is from someone else who originally made the lamp (their blog is here).

My mom had an old mason jar and lid, and we found a lamp shade similar to this one (might be the same one) at Target. We bought a light kit at Lowe's and Jonathan put it together! It actually seems to be pretty easy to make a lamp! So, here are some pictures of the process (excuse the poor iPhone quality of these pictures!):

Jonathan started with the Mason Jar and lid...

He drilled a hole in the Mason Jar lid

The light kit comes with "stoppers" (a few different sizes) that fit down in the hole. (You can use old bottles, etc. to make lamps with a kit like this one.)

Then, he put the light kit together and put the shade on!

The lamp looks great in our kitchen!


  1. So cute! Makes a nice cozy feeling, even being next to the microwave ;)

  2. Ooh, I have a bunch of antique blue mason jars that would look fabulous like this!

  3. What size mason jar?

  4. What kind of shade did you use? How does it stay on?

  5. Probably a clip-on shade (one that fastens over the bulb itself).

  6. Winner of a European Design award, this is the cordless table lamp




    Winner of a European Design award, this is the cordless table lamp sought by resorts in Dubai and Monte Carlo for the 66 hours of light it yields from just a 1 1/2-hour charge of its NiMH battery. Designed and handcrafted in Stuttgart, Germany, the lamp’s sleek, minimalist design parallels a table’s form while LED arrays installed into the underside of its “shade” cast light downward to provide ambient illumination. An infrared remote changes the LEDs to 16 different colors. 2 3/4" diameter (base) x 7 3/4" H (pedestal) x 4 1/4" diameter (top). (2 1/4 lbs.)
