Mason Jar Lid Wreath
I love holiday wreaths as evident by past crafts like this Halloween Wreath, Turkey Wreath and even New Years Wreath. 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 and that one would also make a great mix for your decor. Of course this wreath tutorial is no exception and is so super easy that even a child can assist with (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 wreath craft!
Materials to create your canning lid 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 YOUR CRAFT
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. Be careful that you do not just purchase “lids” as often times they lids are one piece with a center or just the top lid and not the band. Here are few we found that are the correct bands you need. While this craft is a small tree wreath, feel free to make yours larger! 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.
