Hello Melrose Family Readers! Christy here again from Confessions of a Serial Do-it-Yourselfer sharing 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:
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.
Here’s another fun and very inexpensive project for Christmas…DIY Sweater Stockings:
I made these from sweaters I rescued from my Goodwill donation bag!
And here’s what I made from those scraps:
I hope your Holiday season is off to a great start! I’d love to have you visit me any time!!
