Do you love canning or simply collecting mason jars? Then you’ll love learning how to make this adorable DIY mason jar Christmas tree ornament to spread joy over the holidays!
I love mason jars. From the moment I discovered them, I’ve been collecting them. There are so many things you can do with mason jars.
I pressure can homemade goods in them. I store dry spices and homemade beauty and cleaning products in them. The entire family drinks out of them. Leftovers get kept in them. And I even make air fresheners in them.
They have certainly become a staple in our home. I can’t imagine what we’d do without them!
Since it brings me joy every time I discover a new use for them, I decided it would be fun to make a mason jar Christmas ornament to hang on our tree this year. And what better fitting word than Joy (which is also my younger daughter Kaylee’s middle name!).
It’s an easy Christmas Craft that only requires a few simple supplies and about 15 minutes of your time. They look lovely on Christmas trees and they make a wonderful handmade Christmas gifts too.

How to Make a Mason Jar Christmas Tree Ornament
- Begin by applying two coats of blue craft paint (light blue looks best) to the inside of the mason jar. Staying inside the lines of the jar will keep it looking more realistic. Allow the paint to dry well.
- Cut a length of twine and add a line of glue to the mouth of the jar. Press the twine to the glue and hold in place until secure.
- Once the paint is dry, you can write the word of your choice on the mason jar. We chose the word JOY but you can pick any word that will fit. To write your word you can use chalk, but a chalk marker or pen like we used writes nice and smooth and makes for bold lettering.
- Finish the mason jar ornament by creating a loop from either ribbon or pipe cleaner. Add a dab of glue and press it to the back of the mason jar. When it is dry and secure, your mason jar ornament is ready for hanging.
