Christmas Star Jar Covers

Those two little stars from my other post have been transformed into these Christmas jam jar covers.  And do you know what...?  I do believe I have invented this!  (Well, not jar covers in general - but these particular star ones).

I had the idea for this and thought they must be out there somewhere on the internet.  I was sure I'd be able to find a pattern online, but nope!  Couldn't find anything similar.  (Not saying nothing exists, but I couldn't find it if it does!)  So I had to work it out myself.

I found a free pattern for the star, but then worked out how to turn it into a circle, then into a jar cover with ruffle.

I think they'll be perfect filled with Christmassy sweets - I'm imagining little red and white candy canes...

I'm so pleased with how they turned out - exactly as I had pictured in my head.  I especially love the ruffle and the pompom ties!

I think I'll write up a pattern for these, in case anyone feels like making some?  They'd be great for Christmas presents, filled with some tasty treats!

Edited to add: Tutorial now available here!

Thanks for the comments on my post with the little stars.  Chrissie, the cup and saucer are PiP Studio Chinese Rose in Khaki.  I have a little cake plate to match the cup pattern.  They were presents last year (and I'm hoping for the same in blue for my birthday or Christmas this year!)


  1. Thank you for letting me know about the cup! I'm going to check out the web the meantime, please please share the pattern for those charming jar covers! I have lots of chutneys and jelly to give at Christmas, and these are so festive. Very clever of you to create such a sweet pattern! Chrissie x

  2. You clever lady they are beautiful. I for one would be glad of the tutorial if you are happy to share. They look like little hats I image Mrs Santa Claus would wear. xx

  3. These look great, well done you. :o)

  4. ZOMG, these are the most adorable. Ever.

    This reminded me to tell you about a a Christmas craft tutorial link up that's happening in a couple weeks and I immediately thought of you. It's a cute little project which I'm aiming to take part in. Yum, yum. More deets here -
