Jar Lid Ornament

It’s finally December which means it’s the month of holiday fun! I actually made this craft last year for a white elephant gift exchange, so I don’t have process pictures. Hopefully my explanations make sense without the pictures!

I used:
The lid from a glass jar (I think this was from a pasta sauce jar)
Acrylic paint (white, black, and orange)
Hot glue gun
Paint brush

To start off, I made sure my lid was clean and dry. I painted the whole thing white – this took a couple of layers to consistently cover the lid. While this was drying, I finger crocheted some yarn to hang my ornament with. I believe this was about 4” long once it was crocheted.

Once my yarn hanger was made and the paint was dry, I use the orange paint to make a cute little nose in the center of my lid. Then I used the black paint to make eyes and a mouth. You can play around with the facial features, or even make a different holiday ornament like a Santa, a nutcracker, or a gingerbread!

After the face dried, I hot glued the yarn to the back of my ornament so I could hang it on a tree. I thought it looked super cute, especially in the colorful lights of my tree. There are so many options with this ornament and it was super cheap to make with things already in my craft room. I can’t wait to see your ornaments!!
