DIY Wreath Ornament (with mason jar lids!)

DIY Wreath Banner (with mason jar lids)

I use a lot of mason jars for EVERYTHING. And somehow I always end up with extra lids or even rusty lids. I always feel guilty about throwing them out so I go to thinking, "What else can I do with these?"..."Christmas is coming around the corner... what can I make?"

And that is when I came up with these cuties: DIY Wreath Ornaments (with Mason Jar Lids)!

You might have everything already around the house, but in case you don't,
THIS IS WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

  • Small Mason Jar Top (I use either THESE or THESE)
  • Approx. 4 yards of Twine per an ornament (depending on how thick or thin your twine is)
  • Approx. 10" of decorative ribbon (1/8"-1/4" wide)
  • Miniature Christmas Decorations (I found these at Hobby Lobby or get something like THIS or THIS)
  • Glue Gun and Glue Gun Sticks
  • Scissors
