How To Make A Mason Jar Pin Cushion

Just in case you missed my Guest Post over at…

Like a Bubbling Brook

This is what I shared…

A Mason Jar Pin Cushion… So how about we get started!!

1.) You will need ( of course a mason jar and lid ), Heavy Cardstock.. 2.) Trace around your lid on your paper. 3.) Cut out

 Choose the Fabric that you will use. I went with a Japanese Linen Print that I purchased awhile back on ETSY.

Take your Cardstock Circle and Place it on your Fabric of choice cut a square around it… Giving enough room to stuff and fold over later.

 Take your Fabric Square and Place it on the Bottom side of your Mason Jar RING… And STUFF!!

 1.) Place the lid inside the ring.  2-3.) Adjust and Straighten out your fabric getting rid of any wrinkles. 4.) Trim off excess fabric

( VERY important to get it close… You don’t want it to bulky with fabric that your Mason Jar Lid won’t Seal)

DISCLAIMER… :) I forgot to get photos of the gluing with the trimmed piece so I had to FAKE it…

Using your Hot Glue Gun… Place some glue on your lid pulling the fabric Tightly down as you go around. When you are finished gluing down your fabric. Place some Glue on the top and put your Cardstock Paper in it’s place…

 And there you have it Folks… A SWEET little Mason Jar Pin Cushion…That you have just made all by yourself…

 Ready and Waiting to be filled with some Pretty little things… I filled this one with some Buttons

 Ready to be given away as a Gift!!


BEST of all… There can be One for Me and One for You!!!
