Upcycle an old mason jar that's been in the back of your cabinet for years into a beautiful container with this embroidery tutorial!

Mason Jars have become so popular, and yet you can find them basically anywhere. I see them all the time at thrift stores, and what better way to reuse an old jar to make it into a cute container. I store spools of thread, pencils, and markers in them.

Approximate time this project will take: 1-2 hours

Start stitching! I used a series of satin stitches, back stitches, and french knots for my design.

Cut around your circle and leave 3/4 - 1 inch of fabric. The more the better. You will need the extra fabric to secure around the inner part of the lid.
