Whip up a few crocheted jar toppers and transform recycled glass jars into fun storage containers! I've been using these to store my small collection of washi tape, but truthfully have loved just looking at them! I use others for keeping small change or other little items that find their way into the kitchen.
And of course this idea is especially great as it's quick to crochet, and is perfect for using up little odds and ends of yarn. Crocheted jar toppers are great for gifts, party favors or just adding some of your favorite colors to a shelf or tabletop somewhere in your home!
How To: Choose the yarn of your choice, though I'd recommend cotton for a summer project, and use a pattern for the center of any crocheted medallion. Crochet enough rows to cover the top, and then crochet the sides by crocheting in the back loop for the next round. For these small covers, one row of double crochet or two rows of single crochet was perfect for the sides.
I used some cotton yarn that I picked up in Amsterdam a few years ago, and whose weight is similar to Lion Brand Cotton, and a 5mm hook. Do adhere the jar toppers to the lid with glue of some kind if you'll be giving these as a gift.
