You can also just use a pattern fabric to place inside lid. A great idea would to use a pattern that is in your room, maybe a leftover piece of wallpaper. Then you have a matching Jar to your room. Don't laugh, but I cut off a small piece of fabric from underside of my chair to use in a lid, so that it matched my furniture.
The jar itself can be decorated in so many ways, its impossible to list them all here. So I'll show a design and some ideas that I thought would be great to give as a gift to someone.
One of my favorite designs is to use my old Christmas cards or a specific holiday card as a design on my jar. Cut card it to fit jar, and then glue it to jar using crafters glue or glue dots. This is a great idea for a gift around Valentines or Christmas time. You could even use inside of card with message. And to top it off, adding a picture of yourself on other side of jar, will add a nice personal touch.
There are many things you can do to decorate your jar. Using some of ideas above, like pattern in lid, you can also use it on jar. Some other ideas are, painting a scene or message on jar, gluing ribbon strips vertically to add stripes, gluing flowers to base, adding your own custom label and something as simple as red lipstick kisses all over jar.
Your creativity holds no bounds. So have fun and try anything, I bet it will come out fabulous
