MASON JAR LID WREATH DIY Craft Tutorial

MASON JAR LID WREATH

Want a cute way to use up all of those extra Mason Jar lid rings you got laying around? I recently saw a  few posts on Pinterest about these and I couldn't wait to give it a try.
I have quite a few...
  And this is how I did it.

Super easy.  Seriously.  Just take some sort of heavy wire,  or in my case, I used a wire clothes hanger.  I used wire cutters and clipped one end open so I can string the rings on them.
 
Then I just bent it to the shape I needed and started sliding them on.
 
 
The number of lids basically depend on how big you want your wreath to be.  Oh, and these ones I was using are Regular mouth, standard lids. So just play with it.  But I'd recommend at least having 30 to 50 rings on hand. More for a larger one or so on. 
 
You could also experiment with "fillers" in between each ring to save on using so many. But for my first one here, I'm just gonna keep it as simple as I can.

And seriously, that is it.  After you have strung enough, just twist up your wire together and if you can, leave the hook for easy hanging. Otherwise you can tie on some sort of fabric hanger if you have to.

You probably will have to go back, once it is hanging and straighten out the rings. They tend to move and shift while working with the wire a lot.
See how they shift. But it's easy to straighten them up. And after it's done, they stay even with the door opening and closing.

Super easy and cheap craft that definitely screams country any where you place it.



I'm already thinking of making another one.
But for it, I am thinking of experimenting with those foam floater sticks for swimming. I bet they would hold good, as long as they will fit inside the rings. And I bet with those, I'll definitely have to use some sort of filler to hide the foam rings. 

See ya'll next time,
