DIY mason jar vase or sconce, the choice is yours...


Today I had exactly one hour to make this project, take photos and post.  I mentioned I had the materials ready and it was just a matter of finding time....


So, here they are.  Such an easy way to add a
little whimsy to an empty wall or garden gate.


I had bought these plaques at the 'Dollar Store'
(which cost $2.00 each)

I removed the chain and the eye hooks...

...painted it and then added a pipe clamp.


I also added a hanging hook to the back


Placed two of my many,
many jars; added a little light...

The hardest part of the project was trying to place the tea light inside the jar, as my BBQ lighter ran out of fluid and I couldn't get the tea light to sit straight....but you get the idea.





So here is the run down...

plaque = $2.00 each
pipe clamps = $0.98 each
jars = free
total cost of project = under $6.00 for both
total time for project = 30 minutes (incl. drying time)

Yay for cheap and easy!

I will be going away to our family cottage this weekend, hoping to spend some technology free time  hardly gonna happen   and while I'm gone, I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing weekend.

Can't wait to come back and see what you've been up to.

much love,
Lucy

  5. Lucy- What a clever girl you are! Those are just darling and I kind of like that the candles aren't burning perfectly straight..of course it would make a wax mess if left to burn, I suppose..but it is cute all the same! Love the seashells in them- xo Diana

  21. Very cute, I love the color blending of the light blue! The best part is that you can change the theme of what you want to place in the jars. Where can I find the pipe clamps?
