Mason jars are extremely useful in the kitchen, even cooks like "hacking" them. But we've noticed they've become popular material for not only preserving food , but also homemade lighting solutions (a trend our friends over at Re-Nest also noted). From creating your own Sun Jar to hacking a chandelier together, here are some creative reuses of Mason jars as lighting solutions using solar and LED tech to light up our lives.
3. Mason Jar Chandelier: Using a ceiling mounted utensil rack (IKEA Kroken) and the IKEA Hemma cord set, you can hack yourself a beautiful chandelier. The Hemmas need to be screwed into the lids of the Mason jars. Then, they just need to be fastened to the utensil rack with zip ties. (via Re-Nest)
