Mason Jar Chandelier

The idea for a chandelier came together after
I found this huge wooden turned piece on the side of the road...



It decorated the deck while I thought about what to do with it... 


This piece was just too cool not to use it for something...

And then it hit me!

Mason jars!... 

I have a ton of the antique ones with the wire!


I painted the "giant pepper mill" as my daughter calls it,

with green and white stripes to match 
a coffee table I painted for the deck...


The turned wood is hung on 2 chains from the canopy frame. 

Eye hooks and cup hooks suspend the mason jars from 
metal springs and hooks.


Each mason jar is filled with a tea light.


The chandelier is also visible from my kitchen...



This is going to look gorgeous at night!



Oh Yes it does!
