Happy Wednesday lovelies! I don’t know what it is about the Christmas season but I always really enjoy crafting this time of year! If you read my 20 Christmas Traditions to Start this Year post, you’ll know that one of the yearly traditions I’ve started with my family is creating a new Christmas ornament every year. I’ve really been loving the look of all the scrabble tile crafts floating around the internet, so that’s what inspired this super cute and easy craft.
DIY Scrabble Mason Jar Lid Christmas Ornament
The supplies you’ll need include a quarter sheet in the fabric of your choosing, mason jar canning lids, string or yarn, scissors, a hot glue gun, and of course scrabble tiles.
First, you’ll want to tie an ornament loop on your canning lid so you can hang your ornament on the tree. I did this by double knotting a piece of yarn on the lid, then leaving a large enough space to hang, I double knotted the top part and cut off any excess.
Next, using the flat piece of the lid, hot glue the fabric on, overlapping as necessary. Don’t worry about it looking perfect at this point, it will end up perfect once placed inside the rim.
Next carefully line the inner rim of the lid with glue and place the fabric piece inside, pressing down firmly. Be careful on this step, the metal can get a bit warm. Once it is secure, it’s time to hot glue on your letters!
All in all, I ended up creating three different ones, including “Joy”, “Love”, and then for the third one I did mine and my husband’s initials. I used the blank tile in the batch and simply added on a heart with a black sharpie.
I think they look so pretty and they are the perfect addition to our Christmas tree this year!
I just love how they turned out and think I might even create a few more! Do you make ornaments every year or buy them? I’d love to know what you think of this craft, and please share if you love it!
I’m officially on Christmas break starting tomorrow so I’ll be taking some time off from the blog until January 2nd to spend with family and to do some behind the scenes work on upcoming blogging projects for 2017! Don’t worry, I’ll be back and at it full force in the New Year and hope you’ll continue to follow along with me! 🙂
I wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas and hope you enjoy all of the beauty and joy that this season brings!
