There are thousands of mason jar crafts on Pinterest, but what about mason jar lid crafts? We’ve already put all of our extra mason jars to good use…now it’s time to repurpose the rings! Here’s how to make your own mason jar ornaments made from lids.
Mason Jar Ornaments
Fabric and Twine
Take a mason jar lid and line the part with the seal in buffalo check plaid fabric. Next, loop twine around the ring to create a hanger of sorts. Glue the fabric to the ring and cut off any excess.
Instead of using fabric scraps (like the previous DIY project)) use pieces of scrapbook paper around the lid seal instead. This is a great craft project if you don’t happen to have much fabric hanging around!
Another spin off from the idea above, cover the lid seal in black card stock. Loop a hanger through the ring lid and glue the seal with the card stock to the ring. Use chalk paint pens to write fun messages on your ornaments.
Mason Jar Lid Christmas Tree Ornaments: Ideas
Christmas Tree Ornaments
This is not exactly an ornament for your tree…but an ornament for your wall instead! Spray paint mason jar rings and hot glue ornaments into the mason jar rings. After the glue has dried, arrange the rings and ornaments balls into a tree shape and tie it off with ribbon or twine.
This is the easiest project on the list! Wrap string, twine, or ribbon through a mason jar ring, taking care to hot glue the ends so it doesn’t come unwound. Add a little embellishment and then hang in the center spot of your Christmas tree!
Frosty The Snowman
Use a mason jar ring, a white background, and some cut out construction paper to create your very own Frosty The Snowman ornament. Use fabric ribbon to tie it off!
Stick a strip of holiday Washi Tape on the outside edge of a mason jar lid. Tie them off with a bright ribbon for an added accent and DIY hanger. Easy enough, right?

Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer
These are super easy to make! Cover a mason jar seal and the ring in a coat of brown paint. Wait for them to fully dry and then glue on a red pom pom (Rudolph’s nose) and a pair of googly eyes. Use two clothespins as the antlers and a length of bakers twine as the hanger.
Mini Holiday Scene
Nothing says Christmas like a tiny Christmas scene hanging from a well-lit tree. Regardless of which figures you decide to display, a snowy backdrop will make it instantly holiday-esque. Sugar Bee Crafts has the full tutorial to make your own snowy ornament.
And there you have it, your very own mason jar ornaments!
