Place flat part of Mason jar lid inside this fabric pocket and tighten the fabric by continuing to pull thread. When fabric is tight enough and desired look of “dome” is achieved, tie a sturdy knot in thread and cut. Glue down edges of fabric to the flat center lid piece with Aleene’s® Fabric Fusion.

    Super idea !!!

  • Cudownunder55

    You bet I will make some over the summer for Christmas gifts . I have a lot of old blue jars that just set in my cabinets. I could save them for another 20 years or make a few others enjoy them now. Thanks

    That was such a cute idea. Anyone would love that. Wouldn't have to worry about losing needles, spool of thread or you could even put a little pair of scissors in the jar.
    Thanks for sharing such a nifty idea. Have a good evening..
