DIY Mason Jar Rustic Ornament

We are SO excited to be joining in on this 12 day hop and today is all about ornaments.

If you’re new around here, we have a standard M.O. = the easier and cheaper, the better 🙂

Today’s DIY is no exception.

We bring you the mason jar rustic ornament, made from… you guessed it, a mason jar top!

DIY rustic mason jar ornament

You’ll need fabric strips, cut about one inch wide and six inches long; twine; scissors; and a mason jar top. Not too bad, right?

The main step? Tie the fabric strip in a double knot around the mason jar top.

Then, pick another pattern or color and repeat. Your knot tying skills are going to be on fire after you’re finished with this DIY.

Work your way around the top until the entire circle is covered.

Once you’re done tying, the excess fabric will most likely be all over the place; like your morning hair before you’ve had a chance to run a hairbrush through it.

Tame all the craziness by using your fingers as a length guide and cut off the excess.

Please, for the love of God, do NOT cut your finger. We had a few touch-and-go moments during this process but managed to finish unscathed.

After your ornament is all trimmed up, tie a loop of twine around it and ta-da!

All our best,

Be sure to visit our fellow 12 Days of Christmas Bloggers below for even more creative ideas this holiday season!



  1. Lauren

    Super cute and I love that you could really create an ornament for any style just by changing the type of fabric or ribbon or whatever you tie around it. Also, therapeutic haha — you could sit for hours and do these!

  2. Trisha LeBaron

    I love these cute wreaths. I think my grandma had these on her tree! Cute vintage design

  3. Amanda @ Domestically Creative

    Oh my gosh I am in love with these!! I love anything rustic and these are definitely just that. The fabrics you chose are perfect!

  4. Dru

    So cute! They add a warmth to your Christmas tree.

  5. Erlene

    Love this! One of my favorite ornaments on this hop. Pinned.

  6. Megan

    The final result looks so impressive, you’d never assume it was a mason jar lid!

  7. Debrashoppeno5

    These are so cute. I love the idea because you can use up all of the scrap pieces of fabric.
