Mason Jar Lid Wreath Ornaments

Mason Jar Lid Wreath Ornaments

When the Ball Company reissued their Spring Green mason jars earlier this year, I bought a pack of six to use as drinking glasses. That, of course, meant that the six lids were fair game for crafts!

Ready to be repurposed…

I had seen this idea on Chipping with Charm and just loved it. It was perfect for my spare lids!

So I gathered my base materials (jute twine, cotton twine, and braided silk cord)- some from the hardware store, some from craft stores- and got to work.

Wrapping supplies

This is so simple! I tied a knot around the mason jar lid to keep the rope in place, and then wound my rope tightly around the lid.

Let the wreath-wrapping begin…

When I was finished, I tied another knot and added some hot glue to keep everything in place.

Now for the embellishments!

And then I embellished my little mason jar lid “wreathes”!! I used whatever crafting ribbon I had on hand- first adding a loop to hang the ornament on the tree, and then a cute little bow. And the bow plays an important role by hiding the lump caused by the knot in the rope.

Aww, how cute!

Within a couple of hours, I had made several ornaments! It’s the perfect project to do with a group, with kids, or if you think you just aren’t crafty.

For this one, I used narrow lace to wind around the lid, and then added narrow rick-rack on top to give it a candy cane look.

A candy cane wreath!

I also used my braided silk cord (which has a nice shimmer) and green ribbon.

Look very, very closely at those “berries”…

And you’ll NEVER guess what I used for the dainty red berries…

Yet another weird thrifting find…

Crazy, right? I found these never-used nose studs at a thrift shop in Savannah, Georgia. I knew someday they’d come in handy!

And for my fourth ornament, I used natural jute twine, extra lace from the candy cane wreath, and little holly embellishment. I just love the rustic look of the jute!

Ooh, I love this one, too!

I still have two mason jar lid rings left and the possibilities are endless- I have thicker jute to try out, but I also think eyelash or nubby yarn would be awesome, too!

All done!

Cute, right? And wonderfully simple to do. So, moral of the story, always keep lids you don’t use!

    Thanks for joining Cooking and Crafting with J & J!

  21. I have been doing something similar for years using the plastic lips of individual yogurt cups. I take two, put them together and wind string, yarn, etc. around them. I also wind strips of cloth or even paper! Love recycling and repurposing things.

    • sarahwpb@yahoo.com says:

      Awesome!! My entire blog is dedicated to recycling and repurposing ideas, so we are two peas in a pod! 🙂

  22. I love this project. I just saw it being shared in it’s entirety on my local news channel. I’m not sure what your sharing policy is – but you you can check out the segment here. http://www.khq.com/clip/12957522/pinland-empire-mason-jar-lid-wreath-ornaments

    • sarahwpb@yahoo.com says:

      Thanks for looking out for me, Gina! KHQ had reached out to me ahead of time, and I coordinated with them on the photos they used. But I really appreciate you letting me know- a lot of times, my photos/etc. are shared without my permission! Hugs!!

      • I’m glad they contacted you first. They have a really bad habit of sharing ideas & giving away so much that it gives little reason to visit the site. I have gone rounds with them over it. But I feel so much better knowing that you already knew about it.

  23. Hi, I LOVE these! I think I’m going to do this at the kid’s craft table at Thanksgiving this year!

    One little note – as someone who puts up food (tomatoes, jams, salsa, vegetables, etc.) For my family each year, I always cringe a little when I see mason jar products being used as crafts because it has driven up the price of our materials. I would encourage you, and everyone, to only use canning products that would otherwise be discarded for crafts – like a mason jar with a chip out of the time for a candle holder, instead of a new one; old pickle or honey jars with the labels removed for crafting; etc. I used to toss all my rings into the recycling bin when they got rusty, but now I save those ones for crafts, so I can repurpose them, while saving the new ones for actual canning. You could ask a canning friend tonsave them for you!

    I’m not trying to shame anyone, I just wanted to bring up that perspective. I can’t wait to try it with the kiddos! 🙂

    • Sadie Seasongoods says:

      Thanks (I think), Kelli- although, it does feel a little odd to be quasi-shamed by someone who has been inspired to recreate the project from the post they shamed me by. If you read the second sentence of my tutorial, you’d see that I purchased a set of new jars to use as drinking glasses- which is no different cost-wise from purchasing the jars for canning purposes. And instead of tossing the lids/bands, I repurposed them into these ornaments. My entire blog is based on repurposing and upcycling secondhand materials or materials that would otherwise be tossed. I understand where you are coming from, but a little background homework would have prevented you from needing to type out that second paragraph of yours. Best wishes.

      • I really was not meaning to shame you, just trying to share my perspective. I did read the whole blog and I did see where your rings came from. My point is that you used perfectly good rings for a craft that could have been used for canning, whereas I would suggest using spent rings for crafts, instead. (Lots of homesteader blogs have discussed the issue of canning supplies spiking in price because of crafting.) Yes, I would rather you turn them into adorable wreath ornaments than throw them in the recycling bin, just wanted to offer an alternative for next time. New rings can be purchased separately, however people are getting rid of canning supplies all the time on Craigslist and one could score all kinds of virtually free rims for crafts that way, as well.

        • Sadie Seasongoods says:

          If I knew people who canned, then perhaps I would have given them the lids- but the fact is, I don’t. Different perspectives are fine, but there is a bigger story. You probably don’t follow my blog on Facebook, but if you did, you would have seen this post from October: https://www.facebook.com/sadieseasongoods/posts/1240420982770035 . I appreciate that your intent was to share your perspective and not attack, but it truly felt like that latter. I wish you well.
