Step One

Unscrew mason jars from chandelier (make sure fixture is off and has cooled or use gloves). Set jars aside.

Step Two

Remove remaining light fixture from the celling. Don't forget to cover up the hole with a blanket. Choose a colorful pattern to brighten up the now dark room.

Step Three

Undo light fixture post from jar lid. If lids not included in chandelier, try rummaging at thrift stores or yard sales for loose lids.

Step Four

Screw lids on to mason jars.

If there is still a hole in the lid, cover with duct tape or recycled chewing gum for a pop of color.

Step Five

Store your favorite items.

Now you have handy storage containers without creating a carbon footprint.
