Step-by-Step Glass Jar Light Project:

Step 1:

Glass jar wrapped with hessian

Ensure your jar is clean, removing any debris inside and removing any labels and glue.

Step 2:

Measuring lace and twine to fit

Wrap the hessian around the jar; you should allow for a slight overlap and cut to size.

Step 3:

Trimming lace and twine to fit glass jar

You can now trim the lace and ribbon to the same length. Glue these to the jar, ensuring the seam is in the same place for the hessian and lace. Wrap twine around the hessian and lace, tying off in a bow over the seam.

Step 4:

Selecting floral embellishment

Select the flowers for attaching to the jar; you can make some flowers using the hessian or lace by simply cutting to 4 inches in length, and rolling towards you lengthways, gathering and gluing as you roll.

Step 5:

Adding glass jar embellishments
Glue on an arrangement of flowers, placing these over the seam on the jar. Attach a wooden sentiment and other embellishments of your choice.
