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.

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

What a fun idea! I love the whole jar lid repurposing thing! You are brilliant!

I love burlap and/or jute projects. Cute.ReplyDelete
Now that's just too cute! I love the natural look to it, and the daintiness(?).ReplyDelete
Love it Laurel! So pretty. I have jute and jar rings.... hmmm....ReplyDelete
BTW, the fall sale - was fabulous! I will be posting soon what I end up doing with the baby buggy I bought. Happy Thanksgiving!
Very cute, Laurel...and it is wonderful rustic, coastal, or cabin decor!ReplyDelete

What a cute ornament! Makes me go "why didn't I think of that?". Love it!ReplyDelete
That is a very cute ornament!ReplyDelete
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...ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
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 :)ReplyDelete
Love the twine covered jar rings! I think I may try some with sea shells instead of the star. Thanks for the idea!!ReplyDelete
How do you hang the ornament?ReplyDelete
I used a little bit of skinny twine. You can see it in the last 2 pictures :)Delete
HOW have I missed your blog all these years!!!! I have spent a little while now snooping around and I am so glad to say I am your newest follower! Thank goodness for this post somehow ending up in my newsfeed on facebook! :) I have a little blog too that I haven't had much time for lately...but if you are curious, it is www.tootsietime.comReplyDelete
I want to make these for Christmas this year how long of a piece of twine do you need for each ornament. I have looked at several different posts and nobody tells you how long to cut the stringReplyDelete
