Easy DIY Mason Jar Christmas Ornaments For Your Tree

Click to Share!

Whether you are looking for easy ornaments you can make with your children, sell at Christmas Markets, or make homemade gifts to friends and family, this Mason Jar Christmas ornament is perfect.

One of the things I love about Christmas is setting up our Christmas tree.

Yes, it’s pretty with the twinkling lights, but what I love most are the ornaments. Each ornament holds a special meaning.

We have ornaments that were handmade by friends, ornaments from places we have visited, and ones who were given to us by friends from across the country. Each ornament holds a special place in our hearts.

This is the perfect medium to create an ornament that represents the person you are making it for. Much like our First Christmas Ornament, this canning jar ornament can be like a scrapbook gift.

Now go find the bag of lids or drawer filled with mason jar lids without cans and let’s start crafting!

I can’t wait to see your finished product!

2. Cut the circle out neatly along the line.

3. Put double-stick tape it to the inner part of a mason jar lid (tape it to the side that has the rubber ring).


4. Apply an even line of hot glue to the inner rim of the outside pice of the mason jar lid, and place the inner portion of the lid (paper facing out)on the glued area.


5. Pull the cotton ball apart to make it look like snow.


6. Put in small characters and snow, without glue, to see where you want them to be.


7. Once your items are positioned where you want them, hot glue the snow and mini in place; let the glue set for 1 minute.
8. Cut an 8” piece of twine, fold in half; tie the loose ends together in a small knot.
9. Hot glue the knot and the string ends generously to the center of the backside of the ornament.

Ta-da! Wasn’t that easy? The perfect ornaments for children to make to give as gifts, to sell at Christmas markets to make money for the holidays, to fill your tree. There are so many options.
