When do you start decorating for Christmas? Before I started blogging, it was never before December. But now, I get an early start on my holiday crafting and decor! Today, I’m excited to share my first Christmas post of the season: DIY Mason Jar Lid Christmas Ornaments.
I’ve joined eight of my blogging friends for the Let’s Get Festive Christmas Blog Hop, graciously hosted by Rachelle from My Hubbard Home. If you’re stopping by after visiting Rachelle’s blog, welcome! We’ve all got some creative Christmas ornament ideas to share! The links to all of the participants are at the end of this post.
How to Make Mason Jar Lid Ornaments
I love everything about mason jars, even the lids! These festive ornaments are easy and inexpensive to make. I’m going to share three different styles of mason jar lid ornaments you can make to decorate your tree or to give as gifts.
- 3 mason jar lids
- jute twine
- fabric of your choice (I used green toile)
- Scrabble tiles (always buy Scrabble games at tag sales for crafts!)
- thin ribbon of your choice
- small buttons
- tiny deer and bottle brush tree
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
Trace a circle onto the fabric with a sharpie. It should be at least an inch larger than the sealing ring. I used the ribbon roll as a template.
Cut out the fabric circle with scissors.
Place the sealing ring metal side down onto the wrong side of the fabric.
Apply hot glue along the perimeter of the ring, then pull the fabric up and secure in place.
Apply hot glue to the inside rim of the mason jar lid. Then secure the sealing ring inside the lid right side down.
Apply hot glue to the Scrabble tiles and glue onto the fabric. If you don’t have Scrabble tiles, you can use a Cricut vinyl design or leave it as is.
Tie your chosen ribbon into a small bow and attach to the top of the ornament.
Make a loop hanger out of jute twine and hot glue to the inside top of the mason jar lid.
Done! Now, let’s make the other two ornaments 🙂
Cut off a generous piece of jute twine from the roll (but not too long). Attach an end to the inside of a mason jar lid with hot glue.
Begin wrapping the jute twine tightly around the lid. About every six wraps, add a dab of glue to hold the jute twine in place.
Keep wrapping until you reach the end. You’ll run out of twine at least once and will need to glue the end in place and start again with more twine.
Place the buttons where you want them to form a wreath ornament. Leave room at the bottom for a bow.
Hot glue the buttons onto the rim of the mason jar lid.
Hot glue a bow to the bottom and add a jute loop hanger.
Done! Let’s take a look at one more…
Using the same technique as the wreath ornament, wrap a mason jar lid with jute twine. Then, hot glue a mini bottle brush tree and a mini plastic deer figurine onto the bottom of the lid. Finish with a bow and a jute loop hanger.
And there you have it…three mason jar lid ornaments to make this Christmas.
