Creating a Mason Jar Lid Wreath is a beautiful way to make a Christmas wreath or decoration of any size or shape to display on your door. This mason jar craft tutorial will help you turn your mason jar lids into a fun holiday display that can handle the weather!
Mason Jar Lid Wreath Instructions
I love holiday wreaths for all occasions as you can tell by my fun Halloween Wreath, Turkey Wreath and even New Years Wreath tutorials. They are so fun to display not only on your front door but also inside your home on bathrooms and bedroom doors.
In fact, one of my favorite indoor wreaths is this candy cane wreath that would also make a great mix for your decor (and the kids don’t mind cleaning it up after Christmas).
This mason jar lid wreath tutorial is so super easy that even a child can help (of course not the hot glue, that is for adults!).
So gather the supplies below and let’s get started on making this awesome mason jar lid Christmas tree wreath!
Materials Needed For a Mason Jar Lid Christmas Wreath:
- 11 mason jar bands
- 11 green plastic ornament bulbs
- 1 gold plastic ornament bulb
- 4 small red plastic ornament bulbs
- hot glue
Tips for Making Mason Jar Lid Wreaths
Before you get started, make sure you have plenty of Mason Jar Lid Bands.
- You do not have to purchase mason jars to get these bands. You can buy them separately, often at the grocery store in the kitchen utensils area.
- Be careful that you do not just purchase mason jar “lids” as oftentimes the lids are one piece with a center or just the top lid and not the band. Here are a few we found that are the correct bands you need.
While this craft is a small tree wreath, feel free to make yours larger or any shape you’d like! Online they are called Canning Bands or Mason Jar Bands.

How to Make a Mason Jar Lid Christmas Wreath
To get started on your wreath, first trim any strings off of the ornaments. You do not want pieces hanging off your tree that will look unsightly or get in the way and get snagged. Not all ornaments have strings on them.
My green ornaments had strings but not my gold ones!
Discard the excess string.
Now place canning jar bands on a flat surface in a tree shape.
Cut yarn and wrap it twice around 2 jar rings to hold them together.
Secure with a double knot on the back of the ring, and trim the ends.
Continue wrapping yarn around mason jar lid rings and secure them together until you have a tree shape.
Once your rings are all together, flip your tree over so it’s right-side up on the table.
Place your green bulbs into the rings as desired.
Repeat until all jar rings have a green bulb.
Finally, add the gold bulb as the tree stem.
Add small red bulbs to the tree to look like ornaments.
Secure with hot glue.
Hang as desired.
Because the lids have a natural indentation, you can use a command strip to put on the lids OR if you prefer, add an extra string for hanging.

I was thinking if I made this I’d hide the tops of the ornaments underneath (especially if they didn’t match the rings). And just a thought, if you didn’t want to use smaller ornaments for decorations, this could be cute with the larger outdoor christmas light bulbs glued in for a splash of color.
That would be a really cute idea too!
