For the 7th DIY of Christmas, I created DIY Mason Jar Lid Christmas Ornaments!
Here’s what you will need (affiliate links included for your convenience):
- fabric – I used leftover fabric from my Plaid Flannel Ornaments and you won’t need much. 1/8 or 1/4 or a yard would make plenty!
- mason jar lids and rings
- jute or twine to hang ornaments
- wood embellishments – I picked up these 2 packs of wood embellishments/stickers at the Target Dollar Spot
- hot glue
Lay out your lids on the fabric and cut a square big enough to wrap around the back.
Add some hot glue around th edges and wrap the fabric around and secure. This back part won’t be pretty but it won’t be seen
Tie jute or twine or ribbon around the ring and make sure knot is in the back by the edge.
Put a few dots of glue in the back of the ring on the edge and insert the lid. And this is how it looks!
I love how the frame creates a nice clean “frame” for the fabric. Depending on your color scheme you could totally spray paint the lids beforehand if you wanted – maybe white for a neutral/wintery theme?
Then my wood embellishments were stickers so I just peeled off the back and stuck them on.
I was only going to do 6 of them but I was having so much fun and loved them so much I made a bunch If you cut the squares of fabric all at once, you can just speed through these and have a dozen of them done in 20-30 minutes.
And here’s how they look on the tree!
I just love both of these fabrics! And love how the different stickers look different on the different fabrics.
Buffalo check on buffalo check – be still my buffalo check loving heart!
I think these would be fun to do with older kids – just supervise and use low temp hot glue.
What color scheme would you do if you made mason jar lid ornaments? What would you embellish them with?
