Directions to make the homemade Christmas ornament
Before you get started, gather up your supplies for your mason jar lid wreath ornament. Despite the little supplies required, it’s easier when you have everything in front of you.
To get started, cut 20-30 strips from your fabric that are about 1/2-inch wide and 8-inches long. Try not to worry about the exact size as you will be trimming them down later and variation gives some character to your homemade Christmas ornament. Depending on the size of your mason jar lid, you may want more or less pieces of fabric; adjust as needed.
Next, tie each strip of fabric onto the mason jar lid – be sure to tie them tightly and double knot so they stay secure.
Continue adding strips around the lid until it is full of tied fabric pieces. You can have them as tight or as loose as you’d like – just adjust until you’re happy with the result.
Once you’re finished adding fabric strips, trim around the mason jar lid with scissors to shorten them to your desired length.
Then, tie off a long piece of fabric, ribbon, or twine to turn it into an an ornament to hang on the tree!
This also makes a great gift for family and friends. Try playing around with different fabrics to see what different fun homemade Christmas ornaments you end up with.

I wish there was a print link for each activity like there is for online recipes. Going to try the mason jar activities Monday with third graders. Wish me luck!
I’m so sorry! A lot of my newer crafts do have the print option (like a recipe card), but I really need to update older posts and add that!!
