Recycled jar lids {diy Christmas ornaments}

While my Mom and sis were here I thought it would be fun if we did a craft together.

 recycled crafts are all the rage  I see these days.

So why not make our own recycled jar lid ornaments.

I also saw these cutie pies on BHG

Mom was all for it…


not so much. Not that she does not like to recycle…she just is not a big fan of these sorts of crafts.

I insisted we do a recycled Christmas craft together.

Mom looks deep into thought here as to what exact piece of scrap paper she will use.

After all, this is going on her daughters famous blog…..

So what did I do…

cleaned out my fridge first of course.

Lots of moldy salsa and

one pickle always left in the jar.

why is that?

Sorry for the dark pictures…we did this in the evening.

So first, I spray painted the lids.

then we took our scrap paper

and cut the circle to size.

We then mod podged the paper inside the lid.

Hot glued a gingham checked ribbon…

Our tree this year is mostly home made items….and vintage post cards

As you can see I spray painted the clothes pin and added a cute little acorn hate on it.

Time is flying and I still have so much more to do.

Stilling loving my stenciled ceiling medallion.

    Hi Debbie Dear! Oh, this is such a cute craft and it’s nice to see your mommy and sister playing along.
    I’ve been so troubled by the recent tragedy, I’ve had my blog quiet. But it’s time to get back to doing.
    You’re the bestest and I love your little picture with your cute hair!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

    cute cute.. I am getting so many good ideas for the neighbor kids to have fun with. I can see these done for lots of holidays.

    glad you had a fun time with family.

    Those are darling! I’ve been soooo non-crafty lately, I think after moving here from So Cal, being at my dad’s for 5 months and then moving again, I need to recoup! I always know where to come for inspiration though:)

    Hi Debbie,
    This is so sweet and great you could do it with your mom and sister. Love these kinds of things to do together and have the memories forever in the ornament. Merry Christmas dear blog friend.

    So glad you had fun doing crafts with your mom and sis. :)

    This is right up my alley. I love to make something out of what we would discard or recycle, I have a LOT of moldy old stuff in the refrigerator on a regular basis, and best of all it involves decoupage.

    Win… Win… Win.

    Tell your mom and the other more reluctant elf that they get two thumb up!
