Twine Wreath Ornaments...Mason jar lids repurposed...

I have done lots of decorating with jars...and now I have a BIG stash of leftover lids and rims. This is a simple idea I came up to repurpose some of those "lonely rims" into cute little ornaments for your tree...

I just love the contrast of the rustic twine with the sparkly ornament and ribbon and delicate button.

I started by tying a knot inside the rim of the lid.

And then you just wrap, and wrap and wrap...LOTS of wrapping :)

At the end I just tied it off and tucked the knot into the back of the rim. Easy...a little time consuming but not difficult.

    How do you make the actual wreath shape? Do you put the twine lids over a metal or foam form?
  • Rosa Rosa on Nov 05, 2016
    What thickness is the twine? Depends on how large the ring is right? THE thicker the twine the faster I'll finish the project? Waikiki is a calling

    Can you give an approximate length of the twine for a ring?

    so nice.. ( these are canning RINGS not lids.. lids are the round flat bits )

      It's still part of the lid. and if you cut the lids into sixths, you can use that for a decoration to repurpose the WHOLE lid.

    I love the idea and having a use for some of my partially rusted lids. These would also be great if you add a photograph inside the rim and the rim would be the frame. You could also add cute pictures that you cut out of xmas cards on the other side so you can see an image no matter how it is hanging or spinning!
