Recycle.. Upcycle Canning Lids and Rings..Door Bells.

Do you have a few to a ton of lids or ring from canning?? A friend of mine and i sure do. We don't really wanna just toss them in the trash and waste them.. so we started looking for ideas to reuse or recycle the rings and lids.. did not see many at all. so we had to be creative..  Want to know what we cam up with??? I can't wait to show you.. Its super easy..
all you need is ... (Drum Roll Please) Fabric, rings, Lids, Glue gun, Glue sticks, yarn or ribbon, bells(Jingle Bells), Old Christmas Cards.. Pictures.. Anything will work.. And patience..

                                        Here we have Canning lids and rings.. along with fabric..
                                                         Then cut the fabric
                                                Here we have a Hot Glue gun and Glue sticks
                                           Place the lids where you want them.. in the center of the
                                                        fabric.. and get ready to glue...
                                      Gather the fabric one piece at a time and fold it towards
                                        the middle and glue it to the lid until you get the fabric
                                                       Glued all the way around the lid..

                                   Here i used a Christmas Card and used the lid as a Template.
                                        I Put the lid where i wanted it and Traced around the lid..
                                                            Then i cut the Circles out..

                                   Glue the Circles to the side of the lid where the fabric gathers..

                                           I popped the lid into the ring after i tied the Yarn to it..                                                                        
                                          Then i have the main ring..( that goes over the door knob)
                                             Then i repeated the process to the other two rings.

Can not forget the bells
                                             Here we have the Main ring for the Door Knob
                                                     and the Other Rings getting finished
Here is them laying on the floor all done..

                                                         Here they are hanging on the door..

 Ok.. So here is the end product.. Next time.. i'll try ribbon instead of yarn.. Maybe even put yarn around the rings.. I had fun doing this.. gonna see about making more.. Its fun and easy.. My kids will be doing some with me next.. lol
