CIY Staff Tips:

  • When painting the lid of the mason jar, add an additional coat for more opaque coverage.
  • If you’d like to commemorate the year, write it at the bottom of the ornament.


Step 1

Use acrylic paint to cover the top of mason jar lid. Dry 1-2 hours.

Step 2

Use paint brush to coat fingers in white washable paint.

Step 3

Press fingers onto lid to create snowmen. Fill in any gaps with washable paint, if needed. Dry 1–2 hours.

Step 4

Add faces, hats, and more with markers.

Step 5

Turn lid over so the bottom is facing upward.

Step 6

Cut a small piece of string with scissors and loop it to create the ornament hanger.

Step 7

Tape string to back of the lid.

Step 8

Hang on your tree or around the house!
