Handmade Christmas: Salt Shakers into Tree Ornaments

This is a simple way to turn your way-cool vintage salt and pepper shakers into hanging ornaments. 

Here's how to make them:

Cut ribbon (1/8" wide) into 14" lengths. Slide a silver bell to the center of the ribbon. Position the bell inside the jar and hold the ribbon in place on each side of the shaker as you screw on the lid. Tie the ribbon ends together so the jar hangs straight. That's it! You have an instant (and adorable) little ornament. You could embellish them more with greenery or a bow around the neck.
