Free Friday: Autumn Jar Lid

Happy Friday everyone!  Are you excited about the weekend?  It'll be the last normal weekend you'll have for a while, I bet, with Thanksgiving coming next week and then all kinds of Christmas craziness happening through December.  I'm really excited.  I love Christmas and the holidays, spending time with family and seeing the twinkling lights. We're supposed to get our first snow on Sunday, and I'm even excited about that!  Lol!

So this week's pattern is a really cool jar lid for a mason jar.  Do you guys get into mason jars?  I just love them.  I actually loved them before they became cool (I'm a jar hipster I guess), mostly because I'm a canner and I love history and those rustic county touches.  I have some really old jars decorating my house.  My favorites are the classic blue Ball jars!

This lid is so pretty that I think it would make a lovely hostess gift for Thanksgiving.  Just fill your jar full of cookies or some yummy nuts and top with this topper and a jar lid.  You could just as well change the colors of the leaves to green and glue some red pompoms to make it look like holly, and you have a cool Christmas jar topper to make quick and easy Christmas presents.

I'm not 100% sure what I'll post next week.  I guess I'd better start thinking about Christmas things though, huh?  Time is really rushing! 

Hope you all have a great weekend!
