If you’re looking to give your home a rustic touch, these mason jar candle sconces are the perfect fall project.
DIY Rustic Candle Sconces for Your Room
What You’ll Need
- 2 pieces of reclaimed wood
- Half gallon (64 oz.) mason jar
- 1 roll of natural twine
- 1 ½ cups brown short grain rice, dry
- Votive candle
- 1 glass votive candle holder
- 2 screw hooks
- 2 hanging chains (22-inch each)
- Electrical tape
- Dry rice
Step 1: Tape it Up
Tape each end of one chain to your mason jar. Leave about 4 inches of chain hanging from each side.
Step 2: Wrap the Lip of the Jar
Use your twine to wrap the surrounds of the jar’s lip. Continue until the tape is completely covered.
Tip: Wind it as tightly as possible so the chain stays secure!
Step 3: Cut the Excess Twine
Cut the excess twine, then tuck at the end that is sticking out.
Step 4: Pull on the Chain
Carefully pull on the chain to make sure it’s completely secure.
Step 5: Lay Down One Wood
Lay down one piece of wood on a flat surface. We used a piece of deck wood (cut into two pieces), but any reclaimed wood will work!
Step 6: Screw the Hooks
Screw one of your hooks into the wood, about 1-2 inches from the edge.
Step 7: Pour Dry Rice
Pour dry rice into the mason jar, then add your votive holder and candle.
Step 8: Attach to the Wall
Attach your wood to the wall, then hang the jar on the hook.
Step 9: Do the Second Wall Sconce
Simply repeat steps 1-8 with your other supplies to make your second wall sconce.
Step 10: Light it Up!
Light the candles and enjoy your brand new rustic wall sconces! Candle sconces are a fantastic way to add light to a room, and they also add a unique visual touch.
Isn’t this rustic wall decor super easy and beautiful? Sconces are great projects to illuminate the house. We never get tired of beautiful rustic decor – not only is it cozy and charming, but it’s also totally timeless.
You can position it anywhere setting the mood. If you’re feeling a bit adventurous, replace the brown short-grain rice with some pebbles or stones. Make a couple and begin your fall decorating.
