The Poor Man's Glassware: Mason Jar Crafts

Mason jars are the poor man's glassware.
They make adorable decorations or vases.
The holder of jams and peaches.
But often the top is forgotten or thrown away. It would be a hipster's crime if any part of this versatile glassware was wasted! So I thought that the lids would make a cute letter banner.
What I used:
7 rims of mason jars
8 two inch scraps of fabric
Hot glue gun
Lace ribbon
Screwdriver to make holes in rims

First I traced the rims on the fabrics to make the fabric fit perfectly inside when I glued it down. Then I made holes in the rim by twisting the screwdriver through till the hole was big enough to fit my lace ribbon Through. And wallah!
