Instructions
1. Remove the band from the mason jar and wrap it with twine, using hot glue to secure it. Trim off any excess twine.
2. Cut a length of twine long enough to hang the sconce. Tie it into a loop on the band of the jar and screw the band back onto the jar.
3. Place the coat hook onto the piece of wood and make pencil marks where the screws will need to go. Drill holes into each of the marks, and screw the hook onto the board.
4. Tie a knot into the twine loop attached to the band of the jar and slip the loop over the hook.
5. Add filler material to the jar.
