That’s why today, we’re going to show you a few ways you can turn these jars into gifts!
10 Sewing Jar
This is a perfect gift for anyone in your life who is into DIY projects as much as you are!

Then, you can add some thread, some straight pins, a small pair of scissors, a seam ripper, a tape measure, and a few buttons inside. Voila! Your sewing gift jar is done!
