I forgot to show you how I wired the jars.

There was some trial and error but I finally figured out the easiest way.


How to Wire a Mason Jar

* 22 gauge wire (found mine in jewelry section of Michael’s)
* pliers/wire cutter (mine is two in one tool – from jewelry section)

1) Bend a small, open loop with pliers in the end of 22 gauge wire

2) Wrap wire around the bottom lip of the mason jar tightly (tight is key or the wire will come loose)

3) Hook straight end of wire through the open loop and squeeze loop closed with small pliers

  1. Oh thank you! I advertised your giveaway on my blue mason jar giveaway post and I thought about how cool yours looked every time I saw the link. I have a window much like yours and I believe I’m going to give it a go with my new jars!!

  2. Thank you for sharing this. Perfect timing! I’ve been doing a lot of trial and error, ok…….error, and hadn’t come up with an easy way to wire them yet. I so wanted to “copy” or as they say, imitate your look. : ) This looks much easier than anything I’ve been trying to do.

    Can’t wait to see what treasures you were able to find in Brimfield! It sounded like you were able to make it. I’m glad you got feeling better to go if so. Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

  3. Great tutorial. I was going to ask you how the thrifting went but I read above that you couldn’t go, I hope you feel better!


  4. I am going to do the same thing with mason jars that you did….put them in my kitchen window. I love it! I would love to find some blue one too!!!

  5. Great tip. One of those things I would go to try to do, then get all frustrated because it took me hours to figure it out!

  6. What a great idea. What I really noticed was the shower curtain tension rod used to hang the mason jars! I am SO doing this in my kitchen. I love mason jars and have many, now I know exactly what I can do with them. Thanks!

  7. I seriously want to do the blue mason jars in my kitchen window when I come home. I’m hoping to get a cottage in Michigan and think this would be perfect. Thank you for the wire lessons. Sounds simple but you should see me with wire and pliers.. look out!


  8. Your ideas are always great and I love your posts, but I must be honest…when I look at your windows all I see is the huge water sprayer hose. i think it detracts from the entire area.

  9. Love this. I noticed the rod. It looks like a tension rod. I tried to use a tension rod in my window and couldn’t get it to stay. Any suggestions?

      1. Thanks! I’m going to get it out and try it again. If I still have
        trouble, I’m going to bring it to the Curtainshop where I purchased it and
        have them show me what I’m doing wrong.
