Easy Ribbon Jar Ring Ornaments

In keeping with trying to not spend a lot for decorations this year, I took a cue from Laurel over at Chipping With Charm and her Twine Wreath Ornaments.  Hers are so cute and rustic . . .
  Believe it or not, I didn't have much twine but I did have a lot of ribbon, including some vintage seam tape so I used those to wrap the rims.  I like how the flat ribbon created this 'indentation' on the wreath.
 I also have a bag of these tiny, tiny "pine cones".  I'm not sure what they really are but they grow on small trees around here and I collected a bunch in the fall.
 After wrapping a few with different ribbons, I added some of these pinecones and pearls on one . . .

 To another, I just added a 'spray' of the pinecones . . .
 and a book page banner and vintage key to another
 I like how these turned out and will probably be making more to use up more scraps of ribbon, etc.
Linking to these parties this week . . .
