Mason Jar Lid Christmas Ornaments
I purchased all my supplies at Dollar Tree except for the mason jar lids I already had on hand. Sometimes my mason jar lids get a little rusty and can no longer be used for canning. I don’t like to throw them away, so using them for crafts is the perfect way to upcycle them.
How to Make Mason Jar Lid Ornaments
I chose several different frosted floral greenery stems. To use them on the mason jars, remove the greenery from the stems. They should all just pull off.
I trimmed the ends where the greenery was attached to the stems before hot gluing.
You can tie on the twine hanger either before or after you glue on your greenery. You could also use a pretty Christmas ribbon as a hanger, as well.
Use hot glue to attach the greenery around the edge of the mason jar lid.
I purchased some finger guards from Dollar Tree and they really help to keep your fingers from getting burned when using hot glue.

You can use floral wire to help secure the greenery to the mason jar. I used this on the longer greenery pieces so they wrapped around in a circle more easily.
For the greenery that was a little bit thinner, I also glued some of it around the outside edge of the lid as well as onto the front. This provided a little more coverage.
I started by adding stems to the top, then the sides, and then additional stems to the top until I had the coverage I liked.
To add a little color to the ornaments you can add red berries. Dollar Tree usually has both solid red berries and ones that look like they are covered in frost or snow.
Snip the berries off the stems and use hot glue to adhere them to the ornament.
Enjoy your ornaments on the tree!
I think these would make great gifts as well. Simply place it in a cellophane bag and tie a ribbon on the top to gift.
