These mini mason jar Christmas ornaments will bring a touch of farmhouse style to your Christmas tree this year. These can be made in minutes and will add a ton of personality to your Christmas decor!
Kennedy and I saw these tiny mason jars in the craft store a few months ago and I knew I needed to find a way to use them. The simple painted mason jars that I shared a few months ago are something that I’ve really enjoyed and they’ve actually been pretty popular with my readers too, so I put the two ideas together and these mini mason jar Christmas ornaments were born. I think they might be just about the cutest way to do farmhouse style that I’ve ever seen. 🙂
Supplies Needed for the Mini Mason Jar Christmas Ornaments
- Mini mason jars – I found mine in the jar section of Michaels, but I think something like these mason jar shot glasses would be a great stand-in.
- Chalk paint in your choice of colour
- Hot glue
I painted these jars white because I thought that was a classic farmhousey look and also because the two different types of red chalk paint that I had both looked a little too pinkish for this for me. If someone decides to make some of these in a nice deep red, please tag me on Instagram (@Creeklinehouse) so I can see how they look on your tree! That would make my day. 🙂
How to Make the Mini Mason Jar Christmas Ornaments
Start out by cleaning your jars well and removing any stickers, as well as the lid.
Paint your jars using two coats of the chalk paint. Don’t forget to paint the bottom as well!
Clever crafter tip: Since we’ll be distressing these a bit anyway, don’t worry too much about getting your paint exactly perfect. Good enough is good enough.
Once the paint is fully dry, distress lightly with your sandpaper, focussing on the lettering on the front of the jar as well as the top and bottom edges of the main part of the jar.
Attach your ribbon for hanging to the inside lip of your jar using the hot glue and replace the lid.
Hang the mini mason jars on your tree and admire how they make your tree instantly just a little more charming.
I had to tie my ribbon up a bit because I made it a little too long, so be sure to pay a little more attention to that than I did! Chuckers was not impressed with me. 🙂
