Mason Jar Lid Snowman Ornaments

Hi sweet Friends! Today I’m sharing easy and fun snowman ornaments made from mason jar lids! This is a project I created for a blog I contributed to last year.

I had bought two cases of mason jars to hold tea lights for our Halloween Display on Halloween night last year, and I just couldn’t bring myself to throw away the lids. I saved them in a bag just in case an idea for them struck and whadya know? One did!

Here’s a cute idea using them for ornaments:

I made the faces from scraps of a vintage chenille bedspread that I used to make this Christmas Tree Pillow  for my Secret Santa last year. (It was ripped already.)

Making them was simple. Here’s what you’ll need:

I spray painted the rings white to start. For fun, I added some buffalo snow to one of the rings immediately after spray painting:

My favorite fake snow...buffalo snow flurries

I left the others plain, but sanded one. I think I like that one the best!

Perfect use for Mason Jar lids!

There’s really no big instruction needed here, but here’s a step-by-step in photos just in case:

I used a stylus to paint in the details on the faces. I used a Pigma Micron Pen (affiliate link) to draw in the smiles on two of them. These pens are perfect for writing on fabric because they don’t bleed. I actually love to write with them as well.

To hang them, I added ribbon to one with hot glue, and strung clear glass beads on fine fishing line for the other two. I also attached those with hot glue.

Tiny glass beads strung on fishing line make a dainty and pretty ornament hanger.

Coordinating black ribbon tied in a bow finishes them off.

I used a micron pen from Michaels to draw in the smiles on two of them. These pens are perfect for writing on fabric because they don't bleed.

I think the chenille bedspread fabric gives them a nostalgic feel, but you could use any type of fabric.

Here’s another fun Christmas project I made last year that would fit this month’s theme, a very inexpensive project for Christmas…DIY Sweater Stockings:

I made these from sweaters I rescued from my Goodwill donation bag!

And here’s what I made from those scraps:
