1. Tie mason jar lid rim together with twine in the shape of a Christmas tree. Trim ties as desired.

2. While laying flat, hot glue each ornament stem to a mason jar lid rim. Allow to cool.

I left the twine long because I liked the scrappy look.

You could also try Christmas ribbon instead if you’d like to glam it up!

  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!
