Quilted Christmas Treat Jar

Materials:

  • Empty glass canning jar
  • 100% cotton fabric with a Christmas theme
  • 1/4” red satin ribbon
  • Misc. buttons in red and green colors
  • 1/16” Ribbon 002 Gold
  • #8 Braid 009 Emerald
  • #12 Braid 008 Green
  • Diamond Beadlets
  • Shallow pan or tray
  • 8" X 10" sheet of red liner, heavy duty double sided Treasure Tape

Instructions:

  1. Cut out squares from your Christmas fabric (in our sample, we used teacup blocks and a patch with the words “Christmas Tea” printed on the fabric). Set aside momentarily.
     
  2. Cut a rectangular piece of Treasure Tape from the 8x10 sheet to fit like a belt around the middle of your jar. Remove the white backing from this tape and attach it to your jar.
     
  3. Using leftover pieces of Treasure Tape, cover the jar lid.
     
  4. Peel off the red liner from the tape on your jar and begin embellishing: lay the fabric squares first, then the red satin ribbon, then the buttons. Lay the gold ribbon along the top and bottom as a decorative border, and fill in other sticky areas with the green braid colors.
     
  5. When embellishing is complete to your satisfaction, lay the jar in your shallow pan and cover all remaining sticky areas with the Diamond Beadlets. Shake to dislodge loose beads.
     
  6. Do the same with the jar lid to decorate it, then use your personalized, embellished holiday jar as a decoration or gift.

This would make a gift for a special neighbor or friend any time and not just at Christmas. You could use any type of fabric and notions to fit the season. It's a great idea and one that I am going to use. I have done those mixes in a jar but this would make them really special.

Quilted Christmas jars are a very nice idea and once filled with treats, or a mix for cookies, or even small ornaments, these make great gifts that can also become a tradition to be used and enjoyed for many years. If you have some meaningful fabric that can be used for this project this can become an even more meaningful gift!
