I cleaned the label off the jar, and muttered the whole time about why do they have to make them so hard to get off. Then placed the jar on my kitchen table, lit the candle and added my jar topper.
Sure smells great, and looks lovely, but what to do now with the glass jar lid? I will never use this lid on the jar again, but it is just too good to toss in the trash.
I gather up some supplies - including the cute cupcake fabric and ribbon I received from Anna (ThimbleAnna), some stuffing, hand quilting thread and set to making a pin cushion. The fabric is gathered up like you would a yoyo. Fill the lid with the stuffing and then the fun comes as you get the fabric over the stuffing and pull the gathering thread to hold it in place. Tie off the thread securely and then using the ribbon, wrap around the jar lid and tie a pretty bow.
I really like the weight of it and will most likely leave this one on my cutting table. It also makes a good paperweight!
