Make Painted Christmas Mason Jars
I love Mason jars or any jars for that matter and I love Christmas so I decided to combine the two. In this post I will show you had I made these terrific painted Christmas jars that can be used for your holiday decor. Instead of standard mason jars, I used Dollar Tree canning jars for this project but you can use mason jars as well. I added some Christmas greenery and twine to add to that Christmas feel. This is a super simple craft project that will really add wow to your home this year.
Anyone can create this project with some paint, twine and greenery. It doesn’t really take very long to complete either. This is a kid friendly project as well so feel free to get them involved.

What you Will Need: Make Painted Christmas Mason Jars
- Dollar Tree canning jars or Mason Jars
- Decoart Chalky Finish paint in Lace color or your choice of acrylic paint
- Pine Wreath Picks
- Faux Poinsettias
- Paint brush
- Hot glue
Step 1: Paint your Jars
Using your chalky paint, paint your jars using the Lace colored paint. You will paint three coats making sure to let each coat dry before painting the next.
Step 2: Wrap the Rim
Cut a piece of twine that measures 90″. Wrap the rim with twine. I used a jute twine that I had on hand. I folded the twine in half and started winding the twine in the center and cris-crossing the ends so that I would be able to tie the ends. Tie the ends in a nice bow.
Step 3: Insert the picks
Insert the pick through the twine so that it is hanging upside down. Secure with a dollop of hot glue.
Step 4: Add the POINSETTIAS
I purchased these faux poinsettias from Dollar Tree. The stems were a little long for my purpose so I cut off the bottom and simply placed the remainder into the finished jar. You have finished your painted Christmas jars. Remember that you cannot put this in the dishwasher. The paint will come off so if you have to clean them take care and do it by hand.

I had three left over lids from jars I used for this craft. Not wanting anything going to waste I decided to make some Christmas tree ornaments from the lids. These were easy to make as well and took just a few minutes to complete. I made wreath ornaments out of the lids by wrapping them with macrame cord and embellishing them. I got this idea from Sadie Season Goods and thought it was a terrific solution to these extra items.
What you will Need: Wreath Christmas Ornaments
- Canning or Mason Jar lids
- 3mm Macrame cord
- Red Ribbon
- Small red balls
- Hot glue
Step 1: Wrap the lids
Cut a length of macrame cord and wrap the lids so that they look like a wreath. Glue the ends on the wrong side of the lid using hot glue or e6000.
Step 2: Embellish the lids
Embellish the lids any way you like. I used ribbon and little red balls to embellish my lids. I first wrapped one lid with some red ribbon and glued it to the underside of the lid. The next lid I embellished with a bow and the third lid I glued on some small red balls that I had left over from another project.
Step 3: Add the Hanger
Take a piece of ribbon and tie it around the top of the lid to act as a hanger and you have finished your Mason jar lid wreath Christmas Ornaments.
