Can you buy just mason jar lids anywhere ? I don’t want to buy a ton of jars just to get the lids !

I think I would put the burlap string right on the metal park of the clothes pin, just to hid it or even hot glue some type of ribbon over it ! Maybe even paint the clothespins to match decor in which ever room you put it in !
