Vintages Style DIY Jars Covers: How To Make Some. Hello friends. ahaoe sre you today?

Vintages Style DIY Jars Covers: How To Make Some:

Having lots and lots of glass storage jars in the kitchen I wanted to jazz then up a little and make the kitchen a bit more shabby chic style.

I love this material I picked up last May with my birthday money but as the material cost me £25.00.

I never dare to cut it up, just in case it turned out wrong.

Months and month later.

And a brand new pair of pinking shears, I decided to put some of the ideas floating around in my head in to practice!

Vintages Style DIY Jars Covers: How To Make Some What You Need:

Some glass storage jars ~ (I found the screw tops are the best to cover, ones with the metal catches don’t turn out as nice it make a bit of a bulky front bit).

Enough material for all your jars, mix and match or all the same.

Piece of paper to practice a pattern for the top of the jars, best to get it perfect before you cut it out.

Paper scissors and pinking shears to cut the material.

Elastic bands (1 for ever jar).

Tags (1 for every jar).

Vintages Style DIY Jars Covers: How To Make Some What To Do:

Firstly, place the paper and mould it over the jar, makes a little mark roughly where you want the covers to finish.

Cut a square roughly around where you would like the cover size to be.

Fold the square in half, then half again, then half again, so looks like an ice cream cone.

Cut a round the top (like picture 2 above but paper first) or like the top of a heart shape for more flowery tops, and it should be circle or flowery when opened. Best to practice a few times and pick with paper then to pick your favourite pattern.

See if it fits right or you need to make a larger one or trim this one down.

Practice a few styles and experiment with shapes on the paper, I made some like flowers and some like love hearts by cutting the tops different ways.

Place the pattern on the material and cut with pinking shears, this will create a nice zig zag edge that won’t need sewing.

Place on top of the jar.

Get a tag and knot and elastic band around the tag.

Place the band around the top of the jar to hold the material on and makes it look like a hat.
