Hey friends! Are you all ready for Christmas? I’m still working to get the last of my Christmas projects for the blog done and put together some sort of Christmas home tour for this year. It’s going to be a short and sweet home tour; that’s for sure! 🙂
I’ve had this ornament project on the back burner for a while now. I was thinking about holding off on it until next year, but I wanted to get it out to you
before some other blogger did it first so you could make some for this year! 🙂
They are really simple to make the “base” ornament, and there are endless possibilities of how you can decorate them from there! I decorated mine three different ways, and I’ll give you some ideas on what else you can use to make them fit your own personal style!
Mason Jar Lid & Chicken Wire Christmas Ornaments
- Mason jar lids
- Chicken wire (any chicken wire will work, but I used Darice Galvanized Chicken Wire Net for Craftwork because the “holes” are smaller and it is easier to work with than regular chicken wire)
- Jute twine
- Small pair of wire cutters
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Ink Pen
- Decorating materials (baker’s twine, small pine cones, pine leaves, small ornaments, buttons, etc.)
Tie some jute twine in a loop and glue on the top of the mason jar lid. You can also use ribbon, baker’s twine, pearls, yarn, etc. I glued a button on top of where I glued the twine on the lid to give it a more finished look.
Decorate them in whatever ways strike your fancy! Some ideas besides the one shown are: use cutouts of family photos or Christmas cards and pin them in with a mini clothes pin; glue in memorabilia of this year’s Christmas (concert tickets, photos, keepsakes, etc.). The possibilities are really limitless so let your creativity run wild! 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this ornament project! What ideas did you come up with to decorate them? Let me know in the comment section below!
