How to Make a Mason Jar Lid Snowman Ornament
If you have 15 minutes and a moderately stocked craft bin, you can make these right now.
- Two small mason jar lid rings
- Two large mason jar lid rings
- Jute twine
- Plaid ribbon
- Hot glue gun
First, we need to cover the mason jar lids with jute twine. Glue one end of the jute twine to the inside of each mason jar lid.
Wrap the twin around the wring until the entire ring is covered. Do this one each lid.
Next, we’re going to create the loops we’ll use to hang the ornaments on the tree. Make a loop with the twine and glue it to the back of each of the small lid rings.
Now it’s time to stack our rings to create our snowmen! Glue the small ring to the top of the large ring.
To finish off our snowmen, we just need to add the scarf. Cut a piece of ribbon and tie it around the snowman where the rings meet.
Finish the knot and glue the top flap down to the bottom one with a dot of glue so the ribbon retains the look of a scarf.
Your snowman ornament is ready to hang on the tree or attach to a gift as an added embellishment!
