Whether you sew or just know how to replace a button, this little mason jar pin cushion is a handy little craft that is super useful, too! It's perfect to store a sewing kit, buttons or whatever else you can think of.

How to Make a Mason Jar Pin Cushion

Mason Jar Pin Cushion Supplies


  • fabric (I bought some from the odds and ends pile for cheap, but also used some scrap I had on hand)
  • a small 4 ounce mason jar (I grabbed one at Hobby Lobby, but you can grab a smaller one like the kind I used here on Amazon in a huge pack...perfect for gifts!)
  • batting (I buy an extra pillow about once a year for a few bucks and use the batting in it for craft projects all year...huge money saver!) 
  • card board scrap
  • glue gun/glue sticks


Mason Jar Craft Ideas
  • Use the inner lid of the mason jar to trace a circle onto your cardboard and cut it out.
Fabric Crafts
  • Trace that circle onto the wrong side of your fabric, and then make an additional circle, about an inch larger than the original circle.
Mason Jar Gift Ideas
  • Sandwich batting between your fabric (now turned over) and your cardboard circle. I like a nice plump pin cushion, so I stuff as much as I can. 
  • Hot glue the fabric around the circle. 
  • Stuff a bit more batting before you seal the deal.

How to Make a Mason Jar Pin Cushion
  • After your batting and fabric are secure, add a large glue dot to the "ugly" side of your fabric circle.
Mason Jar Projects
  • Glue your lid to the circle. 

Mason Jar Crafts
  • Pop the ring onto the circle and twist onto the jar.
