After the string of lights is threaded through, place them into the mason jar. Then lay the mason jar down on the wood slab where you want it to be. Then grab some twine and tie the mason jar onto the wood slab and knot it well. This twine is more for decorative purposes than it is for security purposes of holding on the jar, so don’t be worried that the jar isn’t 100% in place with just this twine.
To securely attach the mason jar to the wood slab, use a generous amount Liquid Fusion glue to hold it on. Just squeeze it all over the wood slab where the jar will be touching. Be sure that there is enough surface area between the glass and the wood touching for the glue to adhere. If too much moss is in between the two, the jar won’t stick to the slab.
Let that dry over night before moving your sconce around or hanging it! The Liquid Fusion really is liquid fusion, but it needs enough time to dry and set for it to work.
Then you can use more twine to create a loop for hanging purposes. I wrapped the twine around the top a few times and tied off a loop with a knot. I also added some hot glue to this for extra support since this is holding all of the weight of the sconce.
I love the natural and rustic look this sconce has! I’m in the middle of turning the decor theme of my basement family room into a cabin/Adorindack feel. I have these hanging on our wooden support beams around our couch. I love using craft supplies that come from nature and truly love how this turned out!
