10 Minute Craft: Fabric Covered Jars



With a new delivery of Art Viva Knitting Needles arriving this week, I couldn't bear to have them sitting in a plastic bag amongst stock.  Have you smelt these needles? They smell so divine.

So I thought I would pretty up some old jars I had thrifted from the op shop and display the needles in my office.

This crafty project will take you no time at all.
You will need:

  • Jars any size
  • Fabric straps cut into strips (mine are 1 inch)
  • Craft glue that will stick fabric to glass
  • Join your strips together as you would for making bias into one continuous strip.
  • Press and trim your joining seams.
  • Add a little glue to the top of your jar and with a stick shape it over the rounded bit at the top.
  • Continue until the jar is covered.
  • Using your stick again, mould the last row over the bottom edge. 
  • Put your lid back on and fill with all your crafty treasures.

This is a great idea. This morning I was thinking "what am I going to put the girl's hair bands in?" because they are spilling all over the bathroom at the moment. This is perfect as the recycle box is getting full!
