How to Make a Hanging Mason Jar Candle Holder

      Another repurposed lamp project, this time with a 
Mason jar twist.

As you may have already seen, I found a big pile of vintage lamp parts and repurposed them by first taking every piece apart.

You can read about the pedestal planter I made last week for my patio and the swing arm candle holder I made using other pieces from this pile.

The one piece that looked the most interesting to me was this base plate. If you look closely you will notice a face at the top. 

I attached one of the broken pieces to the center of this base then used a metal file to file down the sharp pieces.

I put a cap on the end of the hook to create a finished look on the broken tip. I used Krylon Color Master Spray Paint in Ivy Leaf, to paint the whole piece green.

I spray painted the cap of a Mason Jar to match the hook then hung a mason jar with a wire hanger from the hook.

I'm hanging this beauty inside the back door and it can easily be transferred to a nail in the wall on the deck when needed. 

The Mason Jar is filled with a citronella candle for outdoor use. The jar is removable for cleaning and refilling.

It's an interesting look in a great color for indoors or out and I'm happy that I repurposed a few pieces that were headed for the trash.
