I’ve seen these rustic chandeliers hanging from rafters in old barns, from trees at outdoor venues and in various high-ceiling homes and event centers. I fell in love with them at first site and dreamed of having one in front of my fireplace. I was shocked, however, when I saw the price tag on one I found for sale. At that point, I realized I absolutely had to learn how to make these DIY lights. With a little creativity, these chandeliers can be tailored to fit your home decor or to match the ambiance at any event no matter what your taste! So whether you’re a swooning romantic, a country girl or guy at heart, or you prefer the subtleties of modern design, this is a DIY project anyone can get behind. I love them for wedding decoration ideas, alluring backyard lighting ideas, and adding rustic outdoor charm to pretty much any environment.
This project does not require a whole lot of complicated parts. Mason jars or bottles, a wooden wheel and some basic DIY skills. Amazing how when you combine mason jar lights with the country qualities of a wagon wheel, you’ll get a jaw-dropping DIY chandelier to die for. By the way, if you’re over mason jars (it will hurt my heart a little but I understand we’re all different ) you can make this awesome DIY light fixture from Jack Daniels bottles, tin cans with holes punched in them, or just screw some Edison bulbs on the ends and let them hang freely. The creative possibilities are endless!
