Materials List

  • Canning jar lids or rings
  • Mesh bag from the grocery market (often found holding oranges and onions)
  • 26 gauge wire
  • Sprigs of greenery
  • A small ornament (I used miniature pine cones I found in the woods)
  • A meaningful word written on a wooden craft piece or a plastic lid ("Joy", "Peace", "Merry Christmas", "Love")

How to Make Canning Jar Lid Wreaths


  1. Drill two holes close together on the side of the canning jar lid.  You will use these holes for the hanger made from the wire. The same wire will also be used to attach the meaningful word.

  2. Drill two more holes close together at about 5 o'clock from the hanger holes, but this time on the top of the lid. These holes will be used to attach the bow you make from the mesh bag, greenery, and small ornament.

My mom made these with photos each year for unique Christmas gifts for people that we loved. She would put a photo on the back and use cotton balls to place around the frame for a festive look. Sometimes, we added glitter to the cotton balls to make them sparkle. You can add any color ribbon to make them hang from the tree or fit into any color scheme. With digital printers and simple photo paper, you can make a ton of these for family and friends.

Always looking for cool things to do for Christmas and also reuse the stuff I already have around the house! It would be really cute to put the persons name on the ornament instead of just the words and use them as gift tags!

Love this project.

Very nice and easy project.
