- Designed fabric
- jute cord,
- 20 - 30 strand of lights or a stopper and wick
If you are using a strand of lights be sure to drill your hole in the glass first (instructions are posted further back in this blog). Cut out your material, apply decoupage glue to glass, place fabric over glued area and be sure to smooth out bubbles as you go. Apply more glue and lay more fabric down. If you don't apply the glue and fabric in stages, I find that the glue often dries in places before you get the fabric adhered. Once you have the material glued on, apply a liberal layer of glue (using a paint brush) to the top of the fabric covered area, being careful not to get the glue on the glass. Let dry. Apply a second coat and let dry. Once that is dry, wrap jute or twine cording around the jar again using the Decoupage as your glue as you go. Once all of the jute has been applied, let dry. Apply a very liberal coating of decoupage over the twined area and again let dry. Add your lights or wick and you have a decorative piece. Email me if you have any questions.
