Mason Jar Lid Wreath Instructions

I love holiday wreaths for all occasions as you can tell by my fun Halloween Wreath, Turkey Wreath and even New Years Wreath tutorials. They are so fun to display not only on your front door but also inside your home on bathrooms and bedroom doors.

In fact, one of my favorite indoor wreaths is this candy cane wreath that would also make a great mix for your decor (and the kids don’t mind cleaning it up after Christmas).

This mason jar lid wreath tutorial is so super easy that even a child can help (of course not the hot glue, that is for adults!).

So gather the supplies below and let’s get started on making this awesome mason jar lid Christmas tree wreath!

The supplies needed for a mason jar lid Christmas tree wreath are really cheap and easy to get from Amazon or any big box store. We always use plastic ball ornaments so they won’t break, but feel free to use glass ones if you’d like.

Tips for Making Mason Jar Lid Wreaths

Before you get started, make sure you have plenty of Mason Jar Lid Bands

.

  • You do not have to purchase mason jars to get these bands. You can buy them separately, often at the grocery store in the kitchen utensils area.
  • Be careful that you do not just purchase mason jar “lids” as oftentimes the lids are one piece with a center or just the top lid and not the band. Here are a few we found that are the correct bands you need.

While this craft is a small tree wreath, feel free to make yours larger or any shape you’d like! Online they are called Canning Bands or Mason Jar Bands.

How to Make a Mason Jar Lid Christmas Wreath

To get started on your wreath, first trim any strings off of the ornaments. You do not want pieces hanging off your tree that will look unsightly or get in the way and get snagged. Not all ornaments have strings on them.

My green ornaments had strings but not my gold ones!

Discard the excess string.

Now place canning jar bands on a flat surface in a tree shape.

Cut yarn and wrap it twice around 2 jar rings to hold them together.

Secure with a double knot on the back of the ring, and trim the ends.

You can make your wreath any shape you like, but the bands are less likely to move if you can tie them in triangles, like this. This makes the tree shape one of the easiest Mason jar lid crafts.

Continue wrapping yarn around mason jar lid rings and secure them together until you have a tree shape.

You can see that it’s easy to make your mason jar lid Christmas tree wreath bigger or smaller as needed by increasing or decreasing the number of mason jar lid rings that you tie together.

Your tree may begin to “bubble up” and not lay flat on the table as the jar rings have a lip on them, preventing the rings from laying flat. Do not worry if they do!

The tree will come together with this “bubble” and hang fine.

This tree is made with 11 mason jar lid rings which is the perfect size if you just want to buy a dozen rings for your mason jar lid wreath.

Once your rings are all together, flip your tree over so it’s right-side up on the table.

Place your green bulbs into the rings as desired.

Lift each bulb out of the jar ring and add hot glue to the yarn then press the bulbs into the ring.

 

Repeat until all jar rings have a green bulb.

Finally, add the gold bulb as the tree stem.

Add small red bulbs to the tree to look like ornaments.

Secure with hot glue.

Hang as desired.

Because the lids have a natural indentation, you can use a command strip to put on the lids OR if you prefer, add an extra string for hanging.
