Today’s ornament is an upcycled ornament. I used Mason jar rings as the base for this chandelier ornament. This was requested by 2 people. I loved making this as I added lots of sparkle and beautiful trims from One Little Dreamer. Here is a product list if you’d like to make your own. Mason jar ring, variety of beads & bead caps, strong thread, beading needle, 20 gauge wire, chain, misc. trims. Tools needed, hot glue gun (adhesive) round nose pliers, wire cutters, and beading needle.
Here is my selection of beads and bead caps.
Punch holes in your lid every half inch to create “dangles” I used my cropodile but you can use a nail and hammer if you don’t have one. I made 2 patterns with the beads, one is longer. I alternated them around the lid.
Here are my finished dangles. Make sure you put 4 holes in the top of your lid evenly spaces to connect chains for your hanger.
Here is a beautiful trim I added using hot glue from One Little Dreamer. This trim had pearls and I removed them to add another layer of trim.
I finished off the ring with this beautiful rhinestone pearl trim from One Little Dreamer. This is my most favorite trim! It was the perfect touch.
Add your jump rings to the 4 holes on top of the lid and add your chains, connect all four chains with another jump ring at the top. The add your ornament hook and you’re finished!
Thank you for stopping by! To see a video of this ornament see below!

Do sell the things u make?? It all so beautiful
You are very creative and make beautiful ornaments. What about those of us out there who are looking for simple crafts though?? Can you make something that doesn’t require so much different pieces. It seems kind of expensive. I would also love it if you could tell us how long it took to make and how much it cost when you do your videos. Thank you
Where do you get the crystals and mesh for your ornaments? Joanns does not have anything I need.
Joanns has it, but it’s in the floral dept.
Wow! So intricate and gorgeous! What an amazing way to upcycle. I love it! Thanks so much for sharing your awesome ideas. TFS Hugs Kristina
