WHAT KIND OF MASON JAR LID IS NEEDED?
There are lots of different sizes of mason jar lids for sale.
First off….I wouldn't advise you to buy new lids for this project. Use old ones you already have…or ask around and see if anyone you know has some old lids. The lid will be covered and painted and there is no need to spend the extra money on new lids.
I used a wide mouth mason jar lid for this project…but you could really use any size you have on hand. Just make sure the stickers you use to embellish the ornament will fit on the flat part of the lid.
SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR A MASON JAR LID ORNAMENT
I love easy crafts and this DIY mason jar lid ornament falls into that category.
You will need some basic crafting supplies like scissors, acrylic paint, and a paintbrush.
This DIY Christmas ornament works well with a wide-mouth mason jar lid.
There is a small amount of fabric used in this craft project and it is a great time to head for your fabric stash to use up some small pieces.
Ribbon will be used to hang this ornament so grab a pretty piece of ribbon from the basket.
The front of the ornament is adorned with snowflakes. These are just snowflake stickers from the scrapbooking area of any craft store.
HOW TO MAKE A DIY MASON JAR LID ORNAMENT
These easy mason jar lid ornaments can be made in no time. If you want to give these as gifts it will be a breeze to make multiple ornaments in one sitting.
STEP ONE: PAINT LID
The first step is to paint the lid rim white using acrylic paint.
Once the lid rim is painted, sit it aside to dry.
STEP TWO: ADD FABRIC TO LID
The next step is to glue some fabric on the flat lid.
Add some clear school glue or craft glue to the flat lid. Place the fabric on the lid and pull it so it is taut and smooth.
Allow this to dry.
STEP THREE: GLUE TOGETHER
Take about 6 inches of ribbon and put it through the lid rim for the ornament hanger.
Add glue to the inside of the lid rim and then insert the flat lid into the rim and let the glue dry to hold it in place.
Once the ornament is dry, cut off the excess fabric from the back of the ornament.
STEP FOUR: EMBELLISH ORNAMENT
Now it is time to add some snowflake embellishments to the flat front side of the ornament.
I used a blue and white theme of snowflakes for this ornament, but you can do it however you want! The options are endless for colors and sticker embellishments.
You may want to put a little bit of clear craft glue on the back of the stickers to make sure they adhere well to the fabric.
