Winter weather often puts us in the mood for crafting. Something about creating pretty things lifts us from the doldrums and allows us to feel happy in a way that the lack of sunshine doesn’t. We want that warm and cozy feeling that gives us a vibe of peace and tranquility. These mason jar lids turned flannel wreath ornaments are simple and comforting. They’re the perfect craft for a cold and snowy weekend morning, and you can probably find everything you need hanging around your house.
These make very cute Christmas tree ornaments, but they are also great to just hang around the house all winter long!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- mason jar lid/ring
- flannel fabric scrap (an old flannel shirt works great!)
- hot glue, glue gun
- ribbon or twine for hanging
Begin by cutting the flannel fabric into long strips. It is ideal to have strips that are at least 6 inches in length each.
Add a dab of glue to the end of the strip and press it to the inside of the ring. Allow it to dry.
Begin wrapping the fabric strip around the mason jar lid. Pull gently as you do so the fabric is nice and tight. Continue wrapping around the mason jar lid. If you run out of fabric, secure the end of the previous strip with glue and begun a new one. Continue wrapping until the entire mason jar lid is covered. Secure the final end of fabric with glue and allow to dry.
Snip out small berries and leaves from some scraps of flannel or wool. Add some glue to the backs of each and press to the corner of your wreath.
Finally, add a segment of twine for hanging.
Your flannel wreath ornament is now ready to be displayed.
