We are under a winter storm warning until tomorrow here in Virginia. I can hardly believe it! Usually we don’t start getting these warnings until January! We are supposed to be getting a little bit of snow but mostly ice. Yuck. I hope it melts fast! I don’t have time for ice.

I decided to go ahead and start working on some Christmas ornaments since it looks and feels like Christmas everywhere already. At a craft show a while back I saw some cute little ornaments made out of mason jar lids. I thought, “Well, I can do that!” (And it’s a lot cheaper!) So I decided to drag my mason jar lids out and use some crafts I already had on hand.

What you need:

Mason jar lid with band

What you do:

Step 1

I have this fabric left over from curtains I made to go under my kitchen sink. Lay the mason jar lid down on the fabric and cut out a square shape big enough to go around the lid.

place the mason jar lid on the fabric and cut out a square
Cover the mason jar lid with the fabric

Step 2

Take the fabric covered lid and pop it back through the band. You will have some excess fabric on the back so just trim it down and hot glue it to the back of the mason jar lid.

Pop the mason jar lids back together

Step 3

Add your foam shapes to the inside of the mason jar lid.

Add foam pieces

Step 4

Using hot glue, glue the jute string the the top of the mason jar lid ornament for hanging.

Add foam pieces

I made one with a foam snowman and some glitter for snow.

Add glitter

That’s it! These mason jar lid ornaments are super simple to make. I’m going to make some more soon, but I want them to be more rustic. I have to order some pieces for that.
