These DIY Fabric Mason Jar Lid Ornaments are a perfect way to repurpose jar lids and fabric scraps. They’re also really easy to make so you can whip up enough for all your friends while you watch your favorite Christmas special.
Like my Easy Curled Ribbon Ornaments and Washi Tape Ornaments, these are easy to customize by choosing fabric in different colors and patterns. Small changes in embellishments and the hanging loop can make a big difference in the overall look.
How to Make a Fabric Mason Jar Lid Ornament
This ornament is just as fast and easy as the mason jar lid snowman ornament. You just need some basic supplies and about 15 minutes.
- 1/8 yard of cotton fabric
- 2 mason jar lid rings
- Scissors or rotary cutter
- Glue Gun or floral pins
- Ribbon or twine
- Decorative embellishments (optional)
First, we need to cut our fabric into strips that are roughly the same size and shape. You can use scissors, but if you have a rotary cutter I recommend that since it’s faster and easier.
I cut mine so they were one inch wide and seven inches long.
Feel free to use a variety of fabric scraps to create a more colorful and interesting ornament. Overall, you’re going to need 1/8 yard of fabric for every two rings (about 24 1″x7′” strips per ring).
Next, take each piece of fabric and pass one end through the center of the jar lid. Hold the ends so that they are even lengths (with the jar lid hanging in between) and tie a knot.
Keep adding strips and tie each one in a knot, until the ring is covered completely.
Now we just need to add a loop of ribbon or twine to the ornament so we can hang it on the tree. If you want, you can add a small bow or other embellishment (Christmas craft buttons and charms work great!) for extra flair.
Your ornament is ready to hang on the tree or attach to a gift as a festive decoration!
