Make a pretty, and easy ornament that can be created in many variations by simply changing the fabric and embellishments.
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:
- Jar rings with lids
- Fiskars 9 in. Pinking Shears
- Sierra Pacific Crafts Decor Christmas Trees Natural 12 pc
- Sierra Pacific Crafts Wood Filler Snowflakes .75 in. Box 36 pc Brown
- Christmas buttons
- Thin ribbon (I used 1/2-inch)
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
To begin, lay the lid onto the fabric, and cut out a circle 1/4-inch bigger than the lid. Hot glue the lid to the fabric so the side with the rubber seal is against the fabric, and the nice looking side is facing up.
Cut a piece of ribbon about 8-inches long, and fold it in half. Glue the ends together so the good sides are facing up.
Put the end the ribbon under the ring, face down.
Fold the end of the ribbon up around the jar ring, and glue the ends to the back of the loop to form the hanger. Lay the jar ring face down on the table, and run a bead of hot glue around the inside lip of the ring. Press the fabric covered lid, fabric side down, firmly into the ring and onto the glue.
The fabric covered lid should fit snugly into the ring, and be pressed right up against the front lip of the ring.
Now hot glue embellishments onto the front of the fabric covered lid to complete your ornament.
Try varying the fabrics you use on your ornaments to theme them to your tree–try florals to create shabby chic ornaments, or plaids for a woodland theme, etc..
Attach buttons, stickers, wooden cut-outs, fake flowers, and various other embellishments to decorate your ornaments.
