I just love glimmer and glow, so when my creative daddy suggested we give the mantle in our living room a makeover involving mason jars and rope light, I was all for it!
It was so super-simple and easy, it's not even funny. But the effect is dazzling!
Here's the before picture...
|Nice, if simple. We liked it but were ready for something different.|
|And..... BOOM. Just like that, our fireplace and mantle became the focal point of our living room. That shiny light on the woodburning stove is actually one of our freestanding mason jar lamps from this tutorial!|
All you need is...
- A six-foot length of rope light (We found ours at the Home Depot for $7.48)
- Mason Jars in whatever colors, sizes, and styles you like!
We tacked the rope light to the wooden mantle with little nails and a hammer, to keep it straight and even, because when it came out of the package it wanted to curl. :)
Let us know if you try this EASY, simple, DIY mantle makeover, we would love to see your variations!
