How to Make Mason Jar Flower Lids

  1. Turn your jars into flower vases! You can find Mason Jars at thrift stores, craft stores, grocery stores, and online. Try to get jars with the rings and if possible, the lids. {the lids aren’t necessary, but helpful} If your jars do not have rings, you’ll need to purchase them separately. They can usually be found in the canning section at your grocery store.
  2. Supplies needed: 1/2″ square Galvanized Hardware Cloth Mesh {I found this in the garden section by the fencing at my local hardware store for $10 for 10 feet or you can find it on Amazon}, jar rings, wire cutters, marker, super glue {I used E6000}, jar lids {optional}
  3. Place a jar lid on top of the Galvanized Mesh and with a marker, put dots on each wire around the lid. If you do not have a lid, you can use a jar ring, you’ll just need to trim it a little bit in the next step.flower lids
  4. Using your wire cutters, carefully snip each wire along each dot. It might be a good idea to use leather gloves when doing this to protect yourself from the sharp wire edges. {i found it worked best to almost cut off the dots on the wire. That gave almost a perfect fit inside the lid each time.}
  5. This is your wire “circle” for your jar lid. Check to make sure it fits inside the lid. If it does not, use your wire cutters and trim it down as needed.
  6. Place your wire circle inside your jar lid and run a line of super glue all the way around the ring on top of the wire. Allow to dry. {depending on your glue and climate, it can take several hours}
