Step 3. Box.
Cut wood to your desired length where you will hide wires and to support the light.
Sand and stain afterwards.
Step 4. Drill.
Drill holes that are the same size as the wire for the lights.
Assemble the mason jar with its wire and set the light to your desired length.
Step 5. Wiring.
Glue the wires to keep them in place.
Use a wire connector to connect the wires in every light.
Plug in to check if all wirings are working. (NOTE: you can use lamp wiring instead of Ikea wire)
Step 6. Mount.
Measure the distance from the light to where you will be putting the chandelier.
Mark the wood and drill the holes. Use a drill bit to connect the wooden panel on the ceiling.
And there you have it! A gorgeous homemade Mason Jar Chandelier!
