Mason Jar Christmas Tree Ornaments + 2 Giveaways! {Silhouette December Challenge}

Hey everyone! Last week I shared my heat transfer vinyl Deer Ornaments and this week... I have another vinyl ornament craft to share with you- Mason Jar Christmas Tree Ornaments! My Silhouette Challenge buddies and I are all sharing projects related to this theme of Holiday on our blogs today, so peruse the projects below for a wealth of inspiration!

We are also doing TWO GIVEAWAYS (so keep on reading!)! Yay! 

Every quarter I have been participating in the Silhouette Challenge and this month the theme is holiday. I have been in LOVE with bottle brush trees this season and I thought it'd be fun to make an ornament craft with them. I have seen them in little jars and I thought it'd be fun to do a couple of different sizes AND to add some vinyl to the front of the jar to change it up a bit from the norm! I just LOOOOOVE how these jars turned out!

Now I'm going to share with you how I created these adorable little jars. And, don't worry... if you don't have a Silhouette, you can always make these ornaments without the vinyl on the front and I PROMISE you that they'll still be adorable!

How to Make a Mason Jar Christmas Tree Ornament
If you're planning to add vinyl to your jars, you'll want mason jars that don't have any raised words/design on them. I picked up two sizes of jars at Hobby Lobby. You'll also want some bottle brush trees (mine are from Oriental Trading), craft snow, twine and vinyl.

Glue your tree to the bottom of the jar with some hot glue.

Add a capful or two of the craft snow.

Then add some twine around the base and another piece to connect from top to bottom to make a hanger.

Making Vinyl Art for the Ornament

First, you'll need to find some artwork in your library (or purchase new) and size it to the correct dimensions. Then, go into Cut Settings and select Vinyl, set your blade to the correct number and select Cut Around Edge.

After your design is cut with the Silhouette, pull away the excess vinyl.

Take your backing paper and apply the sticky side down on top of your design. Peel it away so that the design is now on the sticky backing paper.

Apply it to your jar and peel away. You now have the design on your jar!
