3 – Mason jar lid ornament Christmas tree wreath

Mason jar lid ornament Christmas tree for a front door on FunkyJunkInteriors.net
Upon approaching your neighbour’s front door this season, you may expect to see a beautiful, festive wreath greeting you.

But then there’s my house. 🙂

You know me well enough to expect a little quirk, yes? Awesome! Let’s proceed with this mason jar lid ornament Christmas tree wreath. (whew…)

This little brainstorm derived out of desiring something on my front door that wouldn’t die. After a few trial and errors, this little gem happened.

What you’ll need:

Mason jar canning lids
Twine
Ornaments
Garnish of choice (I used evergreen and pinecones)
Hot glue

How I did it:

1. Tie two mason jar lids together with twine and trim.

2. Keep adding until it forms a Christmas tree of your desired size.

3. While laying flat, hot glue the ornament stem to a canning jar lid rim. Allow to cool.

Tip: these ornaments were plastic so they were non breakable should they fall off.

4. Continue until your pool cue thing (haha – tree) is done! 

I left the twine long because I liked the scrappy look. You could also try pretty ribbon instead if you’d like to glam it up.

5. Wire on some pinecones…

6. … and just add a sprig of greens. Hang up and you’re done!

Tip: I might suggest to hot glue a small paint stick or ? along the back of the wreath along the bottom. It tended to want to ‘buckle forward’ a little due to the shape of the rings.

Who else feels a sudden urge to play a glam game of pool? 🙂

Fun, and quirky! I like it! What do you think?

  1. That is just too cute! And how easy to make. Perfect for those rusty rings you can use for canning any more. Here’s a thought. Putting black and white pictures in them and doing a family tree. OK off to make mine! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Ok, that has to seriously be the best junk Christmas tree yet! I love it! And I’m going to pin it and make one. I can just see this in my kitchen! Thank you!!

    PS
    I love your blog. I love your story…so inspiring!

  3. when you gave the sneak peek i guessed tire rims how far off i was lmao, this is awesomeness again love it xx

  4. I have a whole bag of rusty, crusty lid rings who are just waiting to be something cool! I was going to just string them onto a round (like you did a few years ago) for my husband’s shop door, but I am SO making a couple of these instead. I do still like the other idea, though. I’m going to put one on my classroom door at school! Thanks ever so much!

  5. D. You are killing me here. This is fabulous.

    I have to tell you. You sparked a little creative fire in me the past few days. I actually went to my favorite antique shop and found this great wooden wheel / pulley. I even dug out some of my old wood treasures to incorporate back into my space. It’s looking fabulous!!

    I can’t thank you enough for relighting my “junk” lovin’ heart!
