This Mason Jar Ring Christmas Ornament is a simple and fun way to use up extra craft items I have laying around the house and make a cute new ornament for the tree.
If you’ve seen my past projects you know I have lots of buttons and extra jar lids hanging around the house by now. So I thought this was the perfect way to use them up, besides this ornament is so cute. I think they’ll love it! So here it is…
Mason Jar Ring Wreath Christmas Ornament
Simple and rustic ornaments can dress up a country Christmas tree or add whimsy to a slightly more formal one. What is more rustic than mason jar lids, twine, and buttons? Add a pretty wired ribbon bow to match your decor. Don’t just stop at the tree add one of these to a gift wrapped in brown paper with a twine ribbon to make it rival the prettiest of department store wrapped packages.
Mason jar rings
hot glue gun/glue
Glue one end of twine to backside of mason jar ring, hold down until completely cool and hardened ( I use a craft stick to keep my fingers off of it).
Wrap twine around ring, and continue wrapping until it is covered, every so often push twine together to make sure it is tight and all metal is covered.
Cut off the end and tuck it under, secure with hot glue.
Tie on a twine loop for a hanger.
Loop a 6” piece of wired ribbon into a bow, glue at the top of your “wreath” covering hanger. Use fray stop on the ends to keep them from unraveling or a very light singe with a lighter will work as well.
Glue on buttons for “berries” to your wreath for a final finishing touch.
Simple enough wasn’t it? Have you ever made a handmade ornament before? I have a neighbor who makes a new one for her whole family every year. Would be fun to do an ornament swap with crafty people! What do you think?
