Hello Melrose Family Readers! With the holidays fast approaching, I wanted to share this easy and fun snowman ornaments made from mason jar lids! I bought two cases of mason jars to hold tea lights for our Halloween Display on Halloween night, and I just couldn’t bring myself to throw away the lids. I saved them in a bag and have been trying to think of a use for them ever since!
Mason Jar Lid Snowman Ornaments
The faces are from scraps of a vintage chenille bedspread that I used to make a Christmas Tree Pillow for my Secret Santa.
Making them was simple. Here’s what you’ll need:
- White Spray Paint
- White Chenille Fabric
- Black & Orange Acrylic Paint
- Mason Jar Lid Rings
- Black Ribbon
- Hot Glue Gun & Hot Glue Sticks
I spray painted the rings white to start. For fun, I added some buffalo snow to one of the rings immediately after spray painting:
I left the others plain, but sanded one. I think I like that one the best!
There’s really no big instruction needed here, but here’s a pictorial just in case:
I used a stylus to paint in the details on the faces. I used a micron pen from Michaels to draw in the smiles on two of them. These pens are perfect for writing on fabric because they don’t bleed.
Coordinating black ribbon tied in a bow finishes them off.
I think the chenille bedspread fabric gives them a nostalgic feel, but you could use any type of fabric.
