Mason Jar Lid Coasters
Reuse your mason jar lids by making these adorable mason jar lid coasters. They use both the ring and the lid, and you can use ones you previously used for canning. You can also buy a new pack to use if you don't normally can food.
I used an adorable beehive fabric and coordinating yellow and buffalo check fabrics. You can match your decor.
You will need:
- 3 inch wide mouth mason jar rings and lids
- Fabric (I used three styles of fabric)
- Acrylic paint
- Foam brushes
- Mod Podge (I used regular for glue and Hard Coat to the top coats)
- Hot glue gun
Start by painting the mason jar rings. I used black. Use two coats and let them dry completely between coats.
Then seal the rings with Mod Podge. Again, I used two coats and let them dry between coats.
Place a lid on the piece of cork and use a pencil to trace it. Cut out circles.
Then do the same thing with the fabric to cut it out. If you have a pattern, be mindful of the pattern to try to center it.
Then glue the cork circles onto the lids. I used hot glue.
Then glue the fabric to the top of the cork. I used two coats of Mod Podge and let it dry between coats.
Then glue the fabric covered cork inside the canning rings with hot glue. You can then cover the back with felt or more cork to prevent scratches.
I just love how these turned out!
