I had some felts kept aside for a very long time and I thought to do something with it. While Christmas is coming, let’s do some cookie jar decoration as gifts! You can either buy some cookies or bake them yourself. As for the jar, you can use any type of jar. I bought mine from Ikea.
Here are some of the colours that I have. The few Christmas colours to have are green, red, white, and orange.
You can use any kind of thread depending on how thick you want the outline to be. I choose the normal threads because I prefer to have thinner outlines. If you are not sure what colours to get, you can buy the sewing box which gives you a mixture of colours to use.
Before starting on what deco to do, you can first measure and cut out a round-shape cloth as the top cover of the cookie jar. The size of the circle would depend on how much you want the cloth to cover the jar and where to tie the ribbon. If still unsure, cut a bigger round and snip it smaller when you tie it on the jar.
I got my inspiration randomly from Google and came out with these for my 3 cookie jars. You can see that I did not sew all the borders of the mini cloth to the main cloth and use the threads as part of the decoration like the yellow lines on the Christmas tree. I think it is ok to do that if it is not for heavy usage. Otherwise, the sides will be folded or curve up after a few use.
This is how it looks on the cookie jar. You can buy any patterned ribbon to tie it on.
