About this project
Please bare with me, this is my first real tutorial.
I added ribbon to the lid with some hot glue. Super easy to make.
The best place to find these jars on the cheap side is thrift stores. Buying these in bulk and brand new can be costly.
But I think you can never have too many jars for crafting items. They make excellent gifts.
Please let me know if something doesn't make sense. :)
Trace the flat inner circle of the lid on a thick piece of paper.
Cut a 1/4 inch away from the inside of the circle (make it smaller) so it doesn't touch the sides.
(I had to eyeball it because I haven't had a compass since high school)
Then glue that paper to the bottom side of the flat lid.
I used the paper so the fabric would stay adhered. Hot glue doesn't really stay stuck the the metal.
Place the cotton fill in between the top part of the flat circle and the wrong side of the fabric. Have the fabric facing wrong side up, then the fill with the bottom side up lid on top (like a sandwich, a very dry and tough sandwich).
(This is the tricky part, but not too difficult) Start to hot glue one notch while holding the cotton fill sandwich steady. Glue one notch at a time, starting with one then the opposite notch to help keep the fill in.
Hot glue is well…HOT! Please be careful.
Pull snug but not too tight. Remember to have a tall enough mount on the top.
Continue to glue down the rest of the notches.
