Mason jar hangers are versatile décor items to rejuvenate your living space in style. While there are options aplenty to transform them into useful stuff like chandeliers, votive candle holders, lanterns, hanging candle lights, etc., the great experience of recycling the old, worn out jars is unique and priceless.
How to Hang Mason Jars
- Needle nose pliers
- Roll of wire (I prefer 18 gauge since I like the look of thicker wire)
- Wire cutters
Steps for Hanging a Mason Jar
- Pull out about 8-10” of the wire. Leave a small part hanging and loop the remaining part a few times around the pencil.
- Remove the pencil and twist the wire to keep the loops in place.
- Wind the free ends around the neck of the jar before making them meet at the other side.
- Twist the ends together to secure.
- The small tag end can now be neatly cut and tucked in. However, if you have enough length of wire, you can double the turn around the neck to make the hanger strong.
- Now take out around 6” of the longer end of the wire that is still attached to the roll.
- Turn this in a U-shape to make the handle. You can take the help of the pliers.
- Pass the end through the set of loops formed in step 1.
- Twist to secure and cut off any excess.
And you are done. Hang it on the wall or the window, sit back and admire!
