I love mason jars – and finding new uses for them. When updating my kitchen to a farmhouse look, I was debating what to do about my ugly dated ceiling fans. We need ceiling fans here in the south in the summer, so I had no choice but to make them tie in with my new decor. Thankfully since I’m going light and white in the kitchen, the white still works. I painted the blades the light blue from the walls. Looking better, but I hated the ugly tulip globes.
It looked like mason jar lids would fit perfect – and they did. A google search didn’t find any tutorials for making your own mason jar ceiling fan – only a few store-bought ones and a kit for $250!
So, I played around for a week trying to find a glue strong enough to hold the lids on – with the weight of the jars. I just knew my beloved E-6000 glue would work – but it didn’t. Finally, I discovered that Gorilla super glue gel worked perfect. I just put a bead around each opening and pressed the jar ring on for 60 seconds. I then let them cure for 24 hours before screwing on the jars. I used candelabra bulbs inside, which cast a gorgeous glow.
