How to decorate with a Glass Jar Lamp

In case you missed it yesterday, we shared our navy blue and gold master bedroom makeover and today, I wanted to show you how to decorate with a glass jar lamp. Jar lamps have been around forever but many times, you couldn’t get the top off to fill the inside. Now, many companies have made the top removable so you can fill with anything you want. I received many emails yesterday after we shared our makeover asking, “where did you get that lamp?” The jar lamps are from HomeGoods and they were only $29.99!
I purchased vase filler and filled the jar. This is such an easy way to decorate a night stand or any table top for that matter. The vase filler adds so much texture and it took all of 5 seconds to do.
You can fill your glass jar lamp with just about anything.
The walls are a deep navy blue so I felt like a variety of neutral colors would be perfect and Target had just the right colors.
I picked up a cute round wooden glass tray by Nate Berkus and the jar lamp fit nicely inside.
The glass jar lamp looked great on the night stand but it needed something……you know, it looked naked to me. That is where the round wooden tray came in. I love layering items and once the tray was added, the night stand looked completely dressed. Does that make sense?
When I saw these lamps in HomeGoods I blurted out, “those are perfect!” The woman beside me just kind of looked at my out of the corner of her eye and kept walking. I can’t help it, when I see something I love, I get excited!
Do you have any glass jar lamps? I would love to hear your ideas of what you fill them with. I cannot wait to fill this one with faux snow and cute little Christmas trees. Decorating with glass jar lamps is a great way to spruce up any table top and it doesn’t take much effort. To see the rest of the bedroom makeover, click here.

Yes, I have one and I love it! Right now it’s filled with plastic gourds and fake pumpkins and fallish stuff. Last fall it was filled with leaves. Last Christmas I filled it with blue and silver glittery balls that I bought at the $ store. Plastic colorful eggs are great for spring and hearts are great for Valentine’s day.
The rest of the time I have the wicker-type balls in it that you have. Once I put plastic apples in there. I may try something fun for July 4!
