How to Make a Mason Jar Pin Cushion

Cut a piece of fabric 1 inch larger than the lid.

Place fiberfill on top of the wrong side of the fabric and bring it to the back of the lid.  Fasten with a small amount of hot glue.  It is important to not get to much glue.  This will keep the lid from fitting on the jar.  Working from opposite sides helps make a smooth top.

Continue around the lid until all the fabric is secure.  It is important to work as neatly and smoothly as possible so the lid fits when you are finished.

Slip the jar ring around the fabric-covered lid. Press it in firmly. That’s it! You are done.  Cover inside of the lid with a circle of lightweight card-stock to finish it off.  It is important to keep layers as thin as possible so jar lid fits on the jar.
