Mason Jar and Flower Rosette Pin Cushion

Hi!
Many of you know I  am a sucker for  mason jars ....and know that  love 
pin cushions  and many of you  also know that I looooove making fabric flowers.....

So, put  them all in a pot and something like this appears:
My very cute and sweet  distressed mason jar fabric rosette pincushion!! yay! yipiee!Do you notice how much I enoyed crafting this??

To make one yourself all you need:
A small  mason jar like this one, spray paint, strip of fabric, hot glue gun and half a small foam ball. 
Once more, in my anxiety to have this done, I did it at night in my basement and took no photos.
Anyways, the easy and straight forward process is in here
I picked this colours as they go with  my craft room perfectly
Then, I made a big rosette, big enough to cover the foam ball (half cut) and the jar lid. The pins here are just the way I roll my rosettes sometimes. I will  post about this way way to roll them soon!!
I glued the ball to the lid
Attached the rosette  to the ball


Ohhhhhh, sweet!

Somehow it makes me giggly...


I will craft many more to put in my shop and flood the craft fairs this summer with them!
