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 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.
