Holiday Mason Jar DIYs

Mason jar crafts are one of the easiest and cost friendly ways to decorate for any holiday. Last year I shared a winter snow scenes tutorial (see my post here), and this year I’m going to show you how to make snowflake tea light holders and ornaments using mason jars. We had our first annual family craft night last week and I took the lead and we made some easy holiday crafts using mason jars. We also made holiday shadow boxes. I’m going to try to get that tutorial posted soon!


Snowflake Tea Light Holders


Mason jars

Epsom salt (pour a generous amount in a large bowl)

Mod Podge

Mod Podge Spray sealer


Holiday greenery or ornament

Sponge brush

Step 1:

Remove the mason jar lid. You will use it for the second craft.

Brush a thick layer of mod podge over the jar.

Step 2:

Immediately roll the jar in the epsom salt until thoroughly coated.

Step 3:

Let dry a few minutes then spray with sealer (spray outside or in a well ventilated area)

Step 4:

Decorate with holiday greenery and twine. Add a tea light and enjoy!

Holiday Ornaments Made from Mason Jar Lids


Mason jar lids

Holiday themed craft paper

Holiday themed embellishments

Twine or raffia



Double sided tape

Glue gun

Step 1:

Pick out paper, trace around the mason jar lid and cut out.

Step 2:

Tape or glue the paper onto the jar lid.

Step 3:

Tie twine or raffia around the jar lid band and tie off on top so you can hang it.

Step 4:

Apply some glue inside the lid band, insert the circle and let dry.

Step 5:

Glue a holiday embellishment to the front of the ornament.

That’s it! So easy to make!

Hang your ornament on your tree and enjoy the sense of accomplishment on making it yourself!

Here’s some of the ornaments that my family made!
