Mason Jar Lid Ornaments
Transform those spare canning lids cluttering your cabinets into tree décor (you can also buy spare lids in the canning section of your local hardware store). Though any fabric scraps will do, plaid will make your ornaments extra seasonal.
Here’s a snowman that even kids in the warmest areas can build. To make the craft extra kid-friendly, paint the jars white and the lids black, and then set the rest of the supplies out for them to decorate each snowman as they please.
You’d never guess this beautiful ornament was crafted from an aluminum canning ring. Start by covering the ring with natural twine, and then use wire to attach a glittery bauble—like a star. A shimmery ribbon provides the finishing touch.
For the do-it-yourselfer who’d rather not pick up a paintbrush or get glitter all over the counter, this super simple craft fits the bill. Simply fill a mason jar with water, cranberries, and evergreen sprigs, then add a tea light. Voila—a Christmas candle.
Why celebrate just one day? This clever craft provides an opportunity for the whole family to participate in 12 days of Christmas fun. Mason jar lids are decorated and then arranged in the shape of a tree. Each day, you can lift the lid to reveal a fun holiday activity.
