Last week we finished a jar of jam, I couldn't bring myself to throw it out because I loved the shape of it... and most importantly of all I LOVED the little writing on it.
Can you read what is written on the lid and embossed on the glass?
It's written Bonne Maman (Good Mom).
Since I loved it so much, I transformed it into a pincushion so that I could keep it forever. :)
- Jar with Lid
- Embroidery Thread
- Glue Gun
Step 1: Cut a circle out of the cardboard. Make sure it's smaller than the lid.
Step 2: Cut a circle out of the burlap. Make it big enough to be able to stuff it and insert the cardboard. Step 3: Thread the contour of the burlap. Leave some thread hanging out at the beginning and the end (no knots).
Step 4: Place the filling and the cardboard inside your burlap circle. Pull both ends of your thread until the circle is completely closed. Make a knot when you have it tight enough.
Step 5: Glue your cushion onto the lid with your glue gun. (You might want to make sure you like the size of your cushion before glueing it onto your lid)
And voilà.. your very own Pincushion Jar!
What do you think? I really LOVE IT!!
Have a FABULOUS day!!
P.S. I'm linking at these Parties.
