Canning Jar Pincushion Tutorial
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!

Using the lid of the jar, cut out a circle of the same size from the card stock
Using the lid of the jar, trace around it on the wrong side of your fabric.
Increase that circle’s radius about 1” and cut out the larger circle.
Layer the fabric, cotton balls,
and lid then place the “sandwich” inside the band.
Press the lid down so that the cotton balls and fabric form the pincushion on the opposite side of the band. Check to see if you need to move the fabric to avoid creases.
Make any necessary adjustments and then fold in the fabric and hot glue it to the underside of the lid.
Trim away any excess fabric and hot glue the cardstock over the fabric edges.
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.
