Upcycled Jar Lid Ornaments

When canning, it’s best to replace the old lids with new ones to ensure you get a good seal. And since we do a lot of canning in our house; things like canned peaches and pickles and homemade salsa we have a good amount of jar lids each year.

Similar to these scrap fabric Christmas ornaments, we used pieces of leftover fabric to decoupage these mason jar lids. Additionally, you could use pretty Christmas colored papers or even fun napkins like we did with these wood slice ornaments. I love a craft with options!
