I did not fall for the price tag- which was like $8 each. I knew it was something I could make, so off I went to buy the supplies.
Here's my version:
I used the smooth Ball jars, created my own stitchery (more on that in a minute), and Mod Podged it to the jar. I then painted the lid and tied some fall ribbon around the neck. I filled it with some fall goodies, and I have a really cute decoration to add to my fall decor.
I have two more just waiting to be filled and embellished. I'm trying to decide what to put in them-- cinnamon sticks, leaves, mini pumpkins....
Prepare your material. I used muslin, and since I was going for a rustic look, ripped my fabric instead of cutting it.
Print out your quotation or phrase in a cute font in the size and layout you need for your project. Tape it to a window or other light source. Tape your fabric over the paper, and trace your pattern with a pencil.
Use a needle and embroidery floss to stitch your phrase onto the fabric. If I am going to frame it or make it into something else, I will pin some Warm n Natural batting behind the fabric and stitch through both, but since mine was just glued to a jar, I kept it simple.
Use clip art from Microsoft Office or your favorite websites to create cute, one of a kind stitchery patterns. I made my own pillow this way for Valentine's Day.
Or you can just copy something you see in a store, like I did for my jars.
Anyway, I can't wait to decorate for fall. Look for a few more projects coming soon!
