As “the most wonderful time of year” approaches, I start thinking about easy and fun activities and crafts the kids can do during Christmas break, at a seasonal playdate with friends or as adorable teacher or grandparent gifts. I love this Christmas DIY Mason Jar Lid Wreath Ornament because it’s ideal for all of those activities! Check out the supplies and instructions below and you’ll have plenty of inspiration for your own lovely DIY Christmas Ornament!
Talk about a simple and inexpensive Christmas Craft! In fact, if you craft at all, it’s highly likely you already have everything you need lying around the house for this fun holiday project!
Essentially, all you need are mason jar lid rings, jute twine, and some festive ribbons and buttons. As you’re rummaging through your craft drawers, you may even spot some other small Christmas decor items that would be the perfect embellishments. Grab whatever speaks to you – along with your hot glue gun – and set it up at your workstation.
If you’re doing this project with kids (because this is the perfect holiday playdate craft), let them help gather up baubles, ribbons and anything else they find beautiful to add to their creations. It’s part of the fun!
Here are the more detailed instructions and supply list… put on your favorite Christmas music, pour a cup of hot cocoa and get lost in the joy of crafting!
DIY Christmas Mason Jar Lid Wreath Ornaments
Time to Make: 15 minutes
1. Begin by gathering all of your supplies, clearing a work space and plugging in your hot glue gun to warm.
2. Secure the end of the jute twine to the inside of a mason jar lid ring. Wrap the twine around the ring until the entire ring is completely covered. Secure the end to the back of the lid ring.
3. Create a loop with a smaller piece of twine. Glue each end to the back of the lid ring to create a hanger for the ornament.
4. Decorate the twine wreath by gluing buttons and bows to the top or wrapping ribbon around the ring. Let your creativity run wild! Here are a few ideas to spark your imagination…
