Hand Cut Open Bottom Mason Jar for Lighting Shade or Crafts


These Mason jars with the bottom cut off make striking lighting shades, and are also perfect for many other crafts!

These are real Ball or Kerr jars that we hand cut and polish in our Colorado glass studio.

1 cut jar per order. Our lids attach to a 1 5/8″ fitter opening light fixture. Check the second photo to see how they attach. We sell the lids without jars here and full pendant lighting kids here.


These allow you to use a higher wattage bulb, preventing over-heating.

We sand both inside and outside edges so they are not sharp to the touch.

Also perfect for a variety of crafts. Make a candle holder, wind chime, Mason jar cloche, or a candle chimney!

Beautiful light fixture covers and were easy to install.

Awesome Company

I absolutely love the 2 hand cut bottom mason jars for the barn pulley lights I have above my farmhouse sink. Mason Jar Lifestyle is a wonderful company and they provide pretty cool items. I’m glad I found that they offer cut bottoms as the original full mason jars I had on this light fixture had no way of airing out the heat so I had to replace them. They look great! The cut jars was done very professionally with no sharp edges. Look forward to purchasing more items from this company.

Extremely satisfied

Love the mason jar shades! They look perfect on the light over my kitchen table. They arrived sooner than expected and were packaged better than any other item I’ve ever ordered.
