15 Mason Jar Lid Crafts

We craft with mason jars all the time, but what about those lonely lids? Use them up with these fun mason jar lid crafts!

The whole idea behind mason jar crafts is reusing instead of throwing away, so I’ve been feeling guilty about my stash of mason jar lids that no longer have jars to go with them. Seriously, like my wine cork stash, it was getting a little bit out of hand. And I am betting that I’m not the only crafter with a bagful of lids and guilt tucked away in the pantry. Try some of these mason jar lid crafts to bust that stash and assuage your mason jar crafting guilt!

1. Mason Jar Lid Price Tags – Do you sell your crafts? Turn those leftover mason jar lids into cute, reusable price tags for your goods.

10. Shabby Chic Wind Chimes – Spruce up your outdoor decor with a rustic wind chime made from old lids.

11. Canning Lid Monsters – These cheerful little monsters are a great craft for kids! Get your little ones excited about upcycling, and I bet they’ll love playing with the toys that they helped make.

12. Candle Holder – Got a little bit of lace and five minutes? Make a canning jar lid candle holder!

13. Pincushion – Mason jar pin cushions are cool, but they can be bulky when you’re working on a big project and moving around the craft room. This lid-only pincushion is small, so it won’t get in your way.

14. Miniature Jar Lid Collages – This is another mason jar lid craft that your kids can get in on. Have fun creating keepsake collages together!

15. Rhinestone Ornament – Right, I know. Another Christmas ornament. I just couldn’t resist this level of bling, even in the middle of August.
