Canning Lid Wreath

Posted by on Jun 23, 2013 in backyard, crafts, wreaths | 23 comments

What are you up to this afternoon?

I am trying to recover from 10 days of camp.

When 5 people in your family go to camp for 10 days there is a bit of laundry to be done when you get home.

Not to mention, all of the attendees are exhausted :)

But, I had to stop and make this quick wreath

and, show you how it was done.

How to Make a Canning Lid Wreath

I first saw this wreath over at Funky Junk Interiors.

I, who forget most things,

somehow never forgot this wreath.

It was so simple,

yet so cute.

Every time I went to Goodwill I was on the lookout for canning lids.

And, Goodwill just pulled through for me!

Supplies:

wire

canning lids (I used 38)

hot glue

ribbon

I had some wire on hand.

It came in a bag already cut.

I used 2 pieces and looped them together.

I strung on 38 lids,

and twisted the ends of the wire together.

I turned the wreath over,

and ran a bead of hot glue around the middle.

This kept all of the lids in place.

I added a gingham ribbon.

And, it was complete.

The whole project took 5 minutes.

I wish it would have taken a bit longer. . .

Now I have to go back and finish unpacking.

Unless, you wanted to come over and share a Coke with me

while I showed you how to make a wreath?

That could be fun.

It would be rude to do laundry with company over.

I wonder if anyone would trade a wreath for some laundry?

I am much better at being crafty

than at handling standard household chores.

Oh, well. . .

Life to the full!

  1. Hey! I’ll come help with the laundry for a canning lid wreath. I don’t mind folding! LC

  2. Adorable……….bet the hardest part was rounding up the lids, and I can
    see you did a great job on that………..
    Very cute, and a nice distraction from all that laundry, hey, it’s Sunday,
    leave it for tomorrow……………it’s your day of rest…..so that should
    get you off the hook now………lol

    Blessings hon,
    Hope everyone had a fun time at camp.
    Nellie

  3. so fun and what a great use of all those lids you can’t reuse so easily!

  4. Love the wreath! Welcome back. I’d be happy to sit on your deck and fold laundry. Take care!

  5. Sure I’d love to have a coke (diet that is) I’d even bring my own and we could make wreaths.
    I keep forgetting to look for the lids.
    Last year some time I saw a whole string of the zinc lids at our local thrift store and didn’t buy them, would you like to kick me now. What was I not thinking? Aaaarrrrggggh.
    Love your wreath, the brass and alum give it extra shine and vibrancy. I remember seeing that wreath also. Very cute with the red/white bow.
    I got some red/white check burlap ribbon a few weeks ago at HL on 1/2 off of course, dear hl, so I’ll have to use that. I’m going to buy a box of lids so I’ll have them. It seems somebody’s gotten smart and no matter where I go (thrift stores) there are no lids on jars anymore, dadgum it anyhoo.
    No wonder I haven’t gotten a post from you, you were absentia, good for you. Hope you all enjoyed yourself tremendously.
    Going away is lots of fun but not so much the coming home when you’re the laundry person. Going camping was great but the laundry piles of extra towels, etc. were not one bit of fun, unpacking to take all in house.
    I’d willingly do that laundry tho if we could go camping. Hubs has said we’re too old to go. I told him to speak for his own durned self, I really want to go camping in our little trailer we haven’t used in 3 yrs. now. Total bummer. Hubs wants to sell the trailer.
    Where are you going to use your adorable wreath? Or sell it? How long did it take you to collect 38 lids? Happy Summer

  6. Holy canning lids girl, this is fabulous! I love your wreath so much :)

    I love hanging out the clothes. It is my only time of solitude…ever since my kids were little (now, my grandkids follow me out there to help!)
