Primitive Wreath Ornament

3 Materials
15 Minutes

Primitive wreath ornaments are so much fun to make! And so easy, too! You only need a mason jar lid ring and some fabric scraps.

Tip: Before you start your ornaments, rip a bunch of fabric strips at one time. Then gather all your materials, head to the couch, turn on the Hallmark Christmas channel, and make a bunch of ornaments!

Materials Needed

To make primitive wreath ornaments, all you need is:

  • mason jar lid rings
  • jute cord
  • fabric
Step 1

First, you need to cut your fabric into strips. I cut 21 strips about 8″ long and about 1″ wide.

To get the primitive look, cut a little slit on one side of the fabric, then rip it all the way across. This leaves the little scraggly pieces. Or if you prefer a cleaner look, just cut the fabric instead of ripping.

Step 2

Fold the fabric in half

then place it under the edge of the mason jar ring.

Next, put the ends of the fabric strip up through the loop and pull tight to make a knot.

Continue adding fabric strips all around the ring. Push them tight together as you go to make your wreath full.

Step 3

Add jute twine or ribbon to hang the primitive wreath ornament.

I attached jute twine to mine the same way I attached the fabric strips.

Step 4

Finally, fan out the pieces of fabric all the way around the primitive wreath ornament. Just grab the fabric scrap ends and pull them apart to make the wreath appear fuller.

Now hang your primitive wreath ornament from your Christmas tree or anywhere you wish!

    This is so clever, adorable and just simple-sweet because you used green cloth ~ more like a "real" wreath. Cute, cute, cute! And your instructions are very clear and helpful ... my kind of project.

    Thank you very much for sharing!
