Twine Wreath Ornament...left over jar lid rims repurposed...

This is a "busy project"...how do you feel about those?  Something that doesn't take much "crafty-ness"...just a plan and some time :)

Recently I made some centerpieces for a women's event at church...

...and I ended up with a couple dozen jar lids.  So I grabbed the rims and some twine...

...tied a knot...

...and started wrapping...

...finished it off with another knot, and tucked it in.

A little ribbon adds some extra detail...and covers the the knots.

A sweet little button, a "sparkly" little star and some skinny twine to hang it...and you've got yourself a sweet little ornament.

Sharing this at...


I bet many of you are busy, busy preparing their hearts and homes for Thanksgiving on Thursday.  I hope to stop back and show you a little Thanksgiving project we've been working on here...but it's not done yet.  We shall see...if I get it done I'll show you, other wise we'll have a head start for next year ;)

Chat soon,


  1. So CUTE...thanks for showing us how you made them. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  15. What a cute ornament! Makes me go "why didn't I think of that?". Love it!

  16. These are fantastic! Very meditative to work on too. :) I feel like bursting out the doors and running to the store to buy a bunch of lids! Oh, wait, I think I have a few here somewhere...

  17. Love, love, love this. . .and the jar centerpieces as well! Love your blog and most of all, that you're seeking to honor the Lord with the talents He has given you (which are many!) Blessings!

  18. These are so cute and what I really love is you've used supplies you already had on hand to create these. I'm all about that this year and will be trying this as I have a whole bag of these lids in my work room :)

  19. Love the twine covered jar rings! I think I may try some with sea shells instead of the star. Thanks for the idea!!
