Mason Canning Jar Lid Christmas Wreath Ornament Instructions:
Cut fabric into 20-30 strips. (amount will depend on size of mason jar lid and how full you want it.) They don’t have to be exact. Approximately ½ inch wide X 8 inches long is good. This gives enough room to tie without being too short. You will trim length once complete.
Tie each strip to the mason jar lid.
It is best to double tie each one to ensure fabric strips do not loosen and fall off.
Add more strips until the ring is covered. You can push the tied strips together tightly to get a more full look. You will just add more fabric strips.
When all the strips are done being tied, cut around with scissors to shorten to desired size.
Tie with a long piece of fabric or ribbon to use to hang your wreath on the Christmas tree – or anywhere else around your home that your would like to add some Christmas cheer!
I hope that you enjoyed this fun DIY Christmas ornament craft and that you have a very Merry Christmas!
