I have an adorable holiday craft idea to share today! These mason jar ring wreath ornaments are so cute and easy to make; they’re perfect for holiday decorating and gifting. I made these ornaments for a fun holiday ornament exchange & blog hop. So if you’re looking for handmade ornament ideas, you’ve come to the right place! Keep scrolling to see my tutorial along with 21 other ornament ideas.
Welcome to the 2016 Ornament Exchange & Blog Hop! This year, there are 11 pairs of partners or 22 talented ladies participating in the exchange. The rules of the challenge were simple – create a handmade ornament for under $15 to exchange with a partner and create a tutorial to share on the blog hop! Thank you to Erlene from My Pinterventures for coordinating our second Ornament Exchange!
I was paired with Debra from Shoppe No. 5. We are both big fans of anything Christmas and handmade, so I knew I’d love anything she created for me. She sent me the most darling Christmas car ornament! Be sure to check out her tutorial here.

How to make a Mason Jar Ring Wreath Ornament
- Mason jar lid rings
- I used lids from regular pint size jars, but if you’d like a larger ornament, try the wide mouth style.
- I used Charisma by Loops & Threads because I liked how thick it is.
- Sheets of felt
- Assorted holiday floral picks
- Jute twine
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
1.) Knot yarn around the mason jar ring and secure with a dot of hot glue. Wrap the whole ring with yarn, keeping it somewhat taut so the metal ring doesn’t show through.
2.) Before tying off the end, thread a strand of twine or string through one or two loops of yarn for hanging your ornament.
3.) Cut a few pieces from the holiday picks. I chose small gold berries for my mason jar ring wreath ornaments. Use hot glue to secure a few of the “branches” to the wreath, then add a small felt flower. If you need a tutorial for making felt flowers, check out this one from my friend Lauren.
You could also use buttons, ribbon, bows or bells to embellish your wreath ornaments.

I love this little ornament so much! It would look great on my tree. I like to decorate my wrapped presents with a homemade ornament and this would be perfect.
Thanks Sherry! I was also thinking that these would make cute ornament toppers 😉
So simple, yet so elegant. I think I may have some mason jar lids and white yarn. Will definitely have to try making one of these for our tree this year 🙂

Very cute! And so many different ways you could decorate it! I am participating in the Ornament Exchange also and just stopped by for a visit!
Thank you Pam! Yes, I love how easy these are to customize to your own style 😉 I’ll be stopping by soon to see your ornament – can’t wait!
Emily, this is so pretty! I have so many lids & I can’t wait to create some of these!

Thanks Michelle! I find plenty of uses for mason jars, but then the lids just pile up; it’s nice to have a way to put some of them to use 😉
Oh, Emily, I love this ornament and can not wait to get it. I love its elegance and simplicity. Plus red is my favorite color so you knew the way to my heart. Thank you so much. It is beautiful.

I’m so glad you love it, Debra!! And I had no idea red is your favorite color – how perfect! 🙂
This is just beautiful! I think I need to make some for my tree too!

What a cute idea!! People post lots of mason lid ideas, but the rings?? Brilliant!
Thanks Megan! I have a pile of spare lids and rings because I usually wind up using the jars without them; these are a great solution 😉
This is so pretty Emily! I have so many extra lids lying around, and this is a great way to repurpose them.
Amanda @ The Kolb Corner recently posted…Merry Monday Link Party #130
Thanks Amanda! I have a bunch of lids, too, and it’s nice to find another use for them!
