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!
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!
Ready to add some rustic charm to your tree 🙂
All our best,
