We’ve covered Mason jars. Really. We’ve got chandeliers, vases, planters and more. What we have not covered is the covers themselves. These poor neglected Mason jar lids have a lot to give, too. I was blown away by the craft ideas people have come up with, so I picked my top five faves to share with you. Happy reading, MacGyvers!
Maybe it’s because I’m so excited that fall is finally here, but this Mason jar lid pumpkin is the most delightful craft I’ve seen in a while. Just look at that cute cinnamon stick stem! And Kristin at Yellow Bliss Road says it took less than two minutes to complete, so I envision covering the whole house with these cuties.
Though this sweet “Be Mine” Mason jar lid garland was created for Valentine’s Day, the look would be great year round. Maybe a “Trick or Treat” garland for Halloween? I think yes. Visit Ginger at Ginger Snap Crafts for her simple instructions.
It should be no surprise by now that I’m crazy for wreaths, the easier the better. And this Mason jar lid wreath is right up my alley. A mix of paint and washi tape give it its fun, colorful look. Check out eighteen 25 for the full scoop on this design.
Almost every magnet on my fridge was homemade, and I think these Mason jar lid magnets would be the perfect addition to my DIY collection. Don’t you? Head on over to Barks Blog to learn how to make them for yourself.
Following the easy craft theme we’ve got going on, these pretty holiday ornaments are a snap. And again, even though these babies were designed for Christmas, what’s stopping you from making them into charming autumn ornaments for the mantel or porch? Visit Erin from DIY on the Cheap for great directions and insightful tips.
