Hi everyone!  I really wanted to make some cross stitch ornaments for my partners in the HP Holiday swap.  So I started in making my little guys, Ron and Dumbledore.  I originally didn't know how I was going to frame the little cross stitches when I was done, but then I remembered seeing some canning jar lids and rings as frames and ornaments online somewhere.  I loved the idea!  So, here we are!  I found the most rusted of the rings in my canning stash (since you really aren't suppose to use the rusted one for canning and because I love the antiqued look).  I added some Christmas trim around the outside of the ring, and some string to make it an ornament.  I'm definitely going to be making more canning lid ornaments in the future!





Thanks for looking!

I love Rons Santa hat!  Clever way to use the lids.  I recently made an ornament with a lid like this but never thought to used something stitched rather than paper...

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
