I have gone all-in on my patio decor this summer. I have made a little oasis from our once bleak patio, by doing all kinds of interesting DIY projects. I recently found a video tutorial by Gino Vee on YouTube, that described how to make DIY rustic mason jar lights. These lights are wall-mounted and made from old pallet boards. They looked so adorable, I knew I had to make them the minute I saw them. I managed to find an old pallet from my local health food market and I got some battery operated mini-fairy lights from Hobby Lobby. I just love the idea of using mini fairy lights because they are so much safer than candles. When I use the fairy lights in my projects, it gives me greater peace of mind. If I am going in and out of the house working on a project, I don’t have the fear of an accidental fire hanging over my head. The battery-operated fairy lights also provide a nice warm light that makes my patio look very homey.
Materials For Rustic Mason Jar Lights:
- Recycled pallet boards
- 2 coat hooks
- Some rope
- 2 mason jars (with lids)
- A drill (with a large drill bit)
- 2 strands of battery-operated fairy lights
In this video tutorial by Gino Vee on YouTube, you will learn how to make these wonderful rustic lights. You begin by, cutting 2 sections of wood out your pallet and sanding them a bit and attaching them together according to instructions in the tutorial.
Then, you just assemble your project according to directions in the tutorial.
This pair of lights are absolutely stunning, they are going to look so fabulous on my patio.
