Materials you’ll need:
- Mason Jars – These jars have silver lids. It’s pretty hard to find jars with gold lids online. Try your local Wal-Mart if you really want gold lids.
- Bells (20mm) – This set lets you choose between gold, silver or both.
- Cardstock – This is the exact paper I used however you can look around and find what you like. It may be more cost friendly to buy this at your local craft store.
- Hot Glue Gun
- Hot Glue Sticks
- Christmas Pick – I didn’t link to this because these really need to be picked out in person so you can see how many little trinkets they have and exactly how big they are.
How to make DIY Farmhouse Christmas Ornaments
Use the center part of the Mason Jar lid to trace out circles onto your patterned paper. Cut out as many as you’d like to make in as many patterns as you’d like.
Use a small amount of hot glue around the inner rim of the Mason Jar lid and then place your paper circle into the lid printed side down (so it’s visible when you turn your ornament over)
Decide if you want your twine hanger to be on the front or back of your ornament and hot glue it down where you want it. To make the hanger simply cut twine, create a loop and hot glue the ends together.
Pick your decorations and hot glue them down. You can use greenery from the pick, leaves, flowers, berries, bells, pinecones or anything else you have on hand that goes with the theme of your ornaments.
Each farmhouse Christmas ornament will be slightly different as you will be using different decorations for each one. You don’t really want them to be exactly the same since these are meant to be rustic farmhouse ornaments. When you’ve run out of Mason Jar lids use the larger parts of your pick (such as large leaves or flowers) to create more ornaments. The video below shows you how to make 2 different styles of ornaments using the Mason Jar lids and some using the larger leaves from the pick.
