‘Jam Jar Lamp Kit’  

The easiest way to turn a jam jar into a lamp, if you use a standard mouth preserve jar you don’t 

even need to drill any holes, just remove the centre out of the jar lid and fix the lamp holder with the rings provided.

A Jam Jar lamp kit with step by step instructions download included.

It's a super easy-to-use kit of lamp parts that have been tried, tested and specially sourced for you - so you can concentrate on making beautiful lamps safe in the knowledge that the Salvage Sister has done all the leg work to find you British Safety standard parts that all work perfectly together. If you've ever tried making a lamp before you will know how incredibly frustrating it is to find that half your parts don't work with the other parts, or you have muddled up 2 and 3 core wires, or the threads don't match!

So here it is - the answer you've been waiting for at a really decent price.
You can use this kit in two ways to harness your lamp fittings in your jam jar dependant on what size/type of jar you are using, check out the images to see some of the lamps made with this kit and samples from the instructions.

The easiest way to use this kit is with a standard mouth preserve jar that the centre lifts out of - this means you don't even need to drill a hole for your wire! You will use the two lamp holder rings provided to clamp to either side of the preserve jar lid (with the centre lifted out - see images for example). Full instructions are provided with detailed imagery of the step by step process to guide you seamlessly through this exciting build - download the instructions on purchase, the lamp kit will be with you a few days.

(please note jar not included the photos give you an idea of what jars can be used.)
