Jam Jar Bonnets

This is a simple yet very pretty way to gift jam to a neighbour or a friend, as a small token of thanks, if they watered your plants whilst you were away for a few days.

Here is the jam with its pretty bonnet and a bow.

If you wanted to follow this blog-make, look out for some cotton material which has a fruit and flowers pattern.

You will need:

Circular template
Pinking shears

To start, iron your fabric and select a section where there are matching fruits to the jam.

Using your chosen template, mark out a circle with the pencil.

Lella Loves... Pinking Shears

Cut your fabric using pinking shears. Every household should have a pair! They add that extra pop to craft projects and kids love using them.

Take your cut out and lay it on the jam jar. It is better to have the circle too big than too small but trim to suit.

Use an elastic band to hold the fabric bonnet in place and take the time to create pleats if you like that look.

Now take your ribbon and make a little bow to finish off.

This is a good rainy-day project for children toward the end of term. Teachers and grannies alike love to receive presents :)

Have a lovely day.
