- Glass Mason Jar or another jar with a top

STEP 1: Iron fabric
Iron the fabric to get rid of creases and wrinkles.
STEP 2: FIND ROUND PLATE
Look around the house for a plate or a bowl or other round item. The plate or bowl should measure around 6” diameter if covering a regular mouth mason jar or 7” diameter if covering a wide mouth mason jar.
STEP 3: TRACE
Place the fabric with the wrong-side up, on a flat work surface. Place the round item on the fabric and trace around it with a pen or pencil.
STEP 4: CUT CIRCLE
Use a scissor to cut just inside the traced line. The cut circle should look like the photo below.
STEP 5: SEW TRIM
Find some lace or other fun trim to sew onto the edge of the circle. Sew the trim along the raw edge of the fabric circle using a zigzag stitch.
Below is the finished fabric circle with trim.
STEP 6: Place on Jar
Center the fabric over the top of the jar. Secure in place using a rubber band or hair tie. Adjust fabric if necessary so it looks nice.
STEP 7: Add Ribbon
Place ribbon around the lid and tie a bow. The ribbon will cover the rubber band or hair tie to make it look decorative.
These easy to make jar covers are a great way to make the jams, jellies or preserves look special for gift giving.
