Mason Jar Lid Flannel Tree Ornaments

These simple but sweet Mason jar lids turn into charming Christmas tree ornaments to give your tree that country chic look you're going to love. Easy to make, you can add embellishments to make each one unique! Perfect holiday craft.

I’m a sucker for a good DIY Christmas tree ornament, and these adorable Mason jar lid ornaments could not be easier to make. They require very few supplies, are simple enough for even children to make, and they can be made from scraps you have laying around or even old shirts!

I love the country chic look, and nothing screams that more than the combination of mason jars and flannel, amirite? These look so cute on the tree, and you can make a whole bunch at once so they balance each other out as you decorate.

My friend even thought it could be cool to try monogramming some of them with our families initials or even doing some embroidered Christmas symbols. I thought that was such a great idea, but my embroidery skills are seriously lacking, so I’ll save that for another year.

I love the very simple look of these, but there are a million ways you could choose to embellish them. Use some twine wrapped around the lid for a more rustic look. You could paint the Mason jar lid if you wanted to. Add buttons or bells, tie on some ribbon bows, or throw on some sequins or glitter. You might even consider using some greenery around the outside. The only limit is your imagination.

Hopefully these inspire you as a basis for your own unique creation. I’ve got so many ideas that it’ll be easy to think of ways to make each one different. Feel free to share yours with me! I’d love to see what you come up with!

Materials

  • Mason Jar Lids
  • Scrap flannel fabric
  • Twine

Tools

  • hot glue gun
  • glue
  • scissors
  • pencil

Instructions

  1. Place your Mason jar lids onto your scrap fabric and trace around it. This will act as your guide for cutting out your circles.
  2. Cut out your circles from your fabrics.
  3. Add glue to the inner part of your Mason jar lid, and then press your fabric into the lid, pressing firmly all around so it fits securely. Fabric should not be loose or wrinkled.
  4. If you have the flat inner part of your Mason jar lid, you can glue it inside behind the fabric for extra security, but this is not necessary. You can save it for another craft project!
  5. Snip a loop of twine and glue it to the back of your Mason jar lid to act as your ornament hanger.
  6. Once your glue has dried, your ornament is finished. Hang as is, or add embellishments if you like.

Notes

Flannel material can be found in the form of old shirts that are stained, ripped or no longer fit, or you can buy it from a fabric shop. Thrift shops also are great places to find them.

You can embellish these ornaments with twine, greenery, bells, buttons or other fun items.

This is a great kids craft because it teaches them about reusing old items and lets them be creative. It also is great for gift giving - they can each make a homemade ornament for a grandparent or loved one.

I think they turned out really cute, and I can’t wait to hang them on our tree this year. They aren’t fancy at all, but then neither are we. They totally go with our vibe, and I know my kiddos love having a chance to help make our holiday decor. They are so proud of themselves when they get to be part of our holiday traditions. Every year they argue over which of them made which decoration. It’s adorable and annoying in equal parts.

At the end of the day, crafts don’t have to be difficult or showy. They can be simple and lovely just because they were handmade with love. Don’t drive yourself crazy this Christmas. Be present with love and intention. That’s what holidays are all about.
