I’m back today with more DIY Christmas tree ornaments! I love making my own ornaments and putting a personal touch to my home decor. It means more to me when I know that I made it myself instead of spending a lot of money on it. These mason jar lid ornaments are definitely not expensive to make.

Check out my other mason jar lid ornaments.

I went to a huge craft fair at the beginning of Autumn and there was a lady who made these cute little ornaments out of mason jar lids, but she had them priced rather expensively. I decided I would make them myself. So I did!

I found these cute little reindeer ornaments at Wal-Mart in the mini-tree ornament section. There were four deer on one piece of cardboard for a little less than $2.00. I already had the fabric and the mason jar lids and the ribbon.

What you need:

What you do:

Fail: I tried to use wrapping paper instead of fabric, but it did not work very well. So I found some fabric that I bought last year to make wreathes with. 

fabric I used for the mason jar lid ornament

Step 1

I popped the mason jar lid out of the ring and laid the lid on the fabric. I cut the fabric into a small square a tad bigger than the lid.

This picture shows it using the wrapping paper that turned into a hot mess. 

step 1 - cut the fabric

Step 2

I tucked the fabric around the lid and glued it down with hot glue. You can also cover this with a piece of foam board from Dollar Tree or a piece of cardboard.

step2 - fold the fabric over the mason jar lid and glue

Step 3

After that dried I glued a reindeer ornament to the front. (I took the gold ribbon off of the reindeer.) I glued a red ribbon to the top for hanging.

These mason jar lid ornaments are so easy to make and inexpensive, too! They are just a little over $1 each to make and look so good on my Christmas tree. I can’t wait to make more!
