Cut a square of felt big enough to overlap the lid of the jar by 1/2" on all sides.
Cut a strip of black felt and hot glue it to fit around the outside rim of the lid.
Hot glue the square of felt to the top of the lid.
Wrap embroidery floss around four fingers several times, cut loops at both ends.
Gather ends and hot glue to the center of the felt "cap" then hot glue the button on top to cover the floss ends.
- Insert gift, such as a check, cash, or other item inside the jar and attach lid.
