Burlap Wrapped Mason Jar Lid Ornaments

These Mason Jar lid ornaments are a great way to use up any extra mason jar accessories you may have lying around. Every once in a while I’ll go on a mason jar purchasing spree and buy several sizes and styles. I tend to re-use pasta sauce jars and pickle jars in the name of an eco-friendly, zero-waste kitchen so when it comes to mason jars, I prefer to use them more decoratively.

Too Many Mason Jar Lids? Make These Ornaments!

Often the mason jars I purchase wind up being used as a flower vase or penny jar rather than food storage. Because of this, I tend to have several extra mason jar lids and collars lying around in a drawer. What better way to make use of these extras than by creating this charming mason jar lid for your holiday decorating.

Mason Jar Lid Ornament

I love that they’re basic enough to use for winter decorating or to put on a tree. The versatility of the design also works well as a custom gift tag to add on to a present that doubles as an ornament. I often have extra burlap lying around, so these are the perfect way to use that up as well. I’ve made burlap-wrapped wreaths and wall hangings, but never mason jar lid ornaments; this was my first time trying this out!

Materials

  • Mason jar lid with rings, regular mouth
  • Jute twine
  • Metal snowflakes or another flat ornament (not wider than the lid)
  • Burlap or jute decorative trim
  • Laminated burlap sheets
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Hot glue

Tools

Instructions

Remove the hanger from each ornament. Set aside.

Place a mason jar lid on the laminated burlap sheet and trace with a pencil to create the number of circles needed for the ornaments. Cut apart the circles with scissors.



Using hot glue, attach the burlap circles to the top (outward facing) side of the mason jar lid. Then, use hot glue to attach the ornament in the middle of the burlap circle.


Run a strand of hot glue around the inside edge of the mason jar ring and insert the lid, pressing into place.

Cover the metal ring with the burlap ribbon using hot glue, working from the front to the edge. Cut the ribbon at the end.

Cut a piece of jute twine about 5 inches long. Fold the jute twine in half and knot the loose end about 1 inch from the end. Hot glue the loose ends of the jute twine on the inside rim of the mason jar ring. Bend the jute twine around the edge and place a small dot of hot glue on the top to attach the knot.

Re-using items lying around the house is a great way to ensure your home is as eco-friendly and waste-free as possible. Creating decorative items for your home or using them for gift-giving is just an added bonus. These mason jar lid ornaments may be just the quick craft to help clean and declutter your kitchen space. 

15 Easy Vegan Christmas Cookie Recipes

If you’re looking for Vegan Christmas Cookie recipes for your holiday dessert table, your wish has been granted. 

Vegan Christmas Cookies Everyone Will Love 

When my daughter became vegan a few years ago, I learned quickly how to make many of our family favorites vegan. Whether by swapping out regular butter for a vegan version like Earth Balance or using almond milk in place of dairy milk, it was an easy transition.

When it comes to baking, however, getting the proportions correct is an exact science so it takes a bit of trial and error when developing vegan recipes yourself. Whether you are looking for a festive vegan cookie for a holiday party, or just something to satisfy your sweet tooth, you can’t go wrong with any of these cookie recipes!

These cookies are all vegan-friendly and some are even gluten-free.
