Lacy Jar Topper

An easy way to make a circle is to use a large coffee can lid as a template and with a pencil, trace around the primeter of the lid on to the fabric. Then with pinking shears cut out the circle following the pencil line. If you need to stablize the fabric, you can iron on a piece of freezer paper shiny side facing the fabric then draw the circle then cut it out. This actually works better than trying to cut the fabric without the paper.

Place fabric circle over jar lid then slip this jar cap over the fabric.
