I punched a hole in the middle side of the three lids with a larger nail and a hammer. Just look at the great zinc patina of these vintage lids.
I purchased a package of wooden snowflakes from Ben Franklin and spray painted them white.
After the spray paint was dry, I rubbed tacky glue on the tops with my finger, and dusted them with Darice white glitter. I cut string and made hangers for the lids, knotting them just below the hole.
I used E6000 to attach the glittered snowflake to the top of the lid. These lids had an indentation in the center so only the outer tips of the snowflakes touched the lid. You need only glue the tips.
Since I don't have a Christmas tree up in my house yet, I took the lids outside to try on an evergreen tree.
Easy and cheap Christmas tree ornaments made with zinc lids and wooden snowflakes, painted and dusted with glitter.
I have more lids. Do you have any ideas?
