Canning Jar Lights

We did this years ago in our family room downstairs. fashioned after Hoss's Restaurants. Pie pans tin punched around the edges, the wide mouth caning jar rings were riveted onto the pans around a hole. I am not sure how my husband fastened it to the ceiling, but I do know you just need to unscrew the jar to change the light bulb. You do need to know about electrical work to do this project or hire someone who does!
