Have you seen these new Ball® Wide Mouth Contemporary Styled Glass Preserving Jars?
I love this little Half Pint size, especially if you turn it into a pincushion. I realize this is not a new idea and there are lots of instructions available for converting a jar lid into a pincushion, but I think maybe I should give you my version!
Here’s the finished product:
Line the band with a small bead of glue and insert the pincushion into it, pressing firmly. Add the lid to the jar and YOU HAVE A NEW PINCUSHION!
Other ideas (please add yours in the comments): Monogram the top and use it as a “treasure jar”. Add ribbon, paint, and other embellishments to the band to give it even more personality.
