Today we're making super cute DIY Christmas ornaments made from mason jar lids! We'll even show you step by step how to make your own in the DIY tutorial!
Christmas time is creeping up! We love DIY Christmas Ornaments.
We also happen to love Mason Jars and these would make a fantastic mason jar gift idea!
So we have plenty stashed around the house. Unfortunately, a few of our glass jars have broken over time, leaving us with extra mason jar lids.
Since we were already in the spirit of making ornaments, we decided to make Christmas ornaments out of the mason jar lids!
Being that they are a ring shape, wreaths naturally came to mind. So we found a few spools of string, some buttons and a few other supplies and got to work.
We'll even show you step by step how you can make these cute little wreaths.
Supplies Needed for Mason Jar Lid
- Mason jar lid rings
- Jute twine
- Glue gun
How to Make DIY Mason Jar Lid Christmas Ornaments
Start by grabbing your jute twine and your mason jar lid rings.
Carefully wrap the twine tightly around the mason jar lid ring until the entire thing is totally covered by the jute.
Using the hot glue, secure the end of the jute string to the back of the lid ring.
Now create a loop with a smaller piece of jute, creating an area to hang your ornament from.
Glue both ends of the loop to the back of the lid toward the top.
Now comes the fun part! Decorating your jute wreath with the buttons and ribbon.
You can get as creative as you want and customize your wreaths to fit your tastes.
I suggest using color coordinating ribbons and buttons so that you can make several that look different, but still feel like they are part of a set.
We decorated some of our DIY Christmas wreath ornaments with a big pretty bow and a button in the center.
You can leave the rest plain or add additional buttons to decorate the rest of the wreath if you like.
We wrapped one wreath with a bit of red and white plaid ribbon and added a big pretty green bow to top it off.
For our others, we glued random green and red buttons and added an accent bow toward the side of the wreath.
Aren't they cute! Not bad for some string and mason jar lids!
