Re-purpose Ball Jar Lids into Wall Art

Here is an easy way to create wall art from Ball Jar Lids. They look really cool if you make 4 + of them and collage them onto your wall.


Lets Begin:

What You Will Need:
Ball or Mason Jar Lid
Glue (White glue or Hot Glue)
Paper (I used watercolor paper because it is thick)
Scissors
Pen
Something to decorate it with: Paint, Pens, and/or Magazines
(I used Mod Podge and Magazines to decorate mine, but you can paint it, color it, or draw a picture on it!)



 Start by laying your lid on the piece of paper and tracing a circle:


Cut out the Circle:


Fit your Circle into the lid. You may have to cut more off to make it fit:


Decorate your circle!!
I used Mod Podge and Magazines


Glue around the inside rim of the lid:


Push your decorated circle into the lid:


Add glue to the paper to glue the other piece of the lid on:
(This is optional. You do not have to glue the back on)


Push down to secure the lid to the paper:


YOU'RE FINISHED!!!


They hang on the walls very easily. Make a bunch of them to create a wall collage!!

ENJOY!
