Jar Lid Decorations

What you’ll need:

  • Jam jar lids
  • Wrapping paper
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Foam pads
  • Glue stick
  • Glitter
  • Fake snow
  • Double sided tape
  • Ribbon
  • Small baubles


Step 1:

Arrange a lid upside down and draw around it onto some wrapping paper. Cut it out and stick the paper onto the lid.


Step 2:

Using glue or foam pads fix some wintry shapes and decorations. You can use old designs from cards or wrapping paper for inspiration. Stick the shapes to foam to place inside the lids. Finish with glitter and/or fake snow


Step 3:

Place some double sided sticky tape to the back of the lid and stick the lid to a piece of ribbon for hanging. You can attach other decorations to the ribbon to maximise the effect. Tie the ribbon onto a door handle or picture hook for display.
