DIY Pretty Wedding Centrepiece Jars

What you're going to need:

what you'll need
  • Collected jars
  • Assorted ribbon and twine
  • Liquid glue
  • Double sided tape
  • Scissors

What you need to do:

  1. Make sure all of the jars you're using are washed clean (a dishwasher is the best way to get rid of any lingering food or bacteria) and that all of the labels have been removed clean your jars 
  2. When using twine, cut an amount about three times the size that you need to tie it around the top of the jar                                                                        Cut the twine 
  3. Wrap it around three times and tie a bow to finish it off Tie a bow 
  4. Some ribbon is available with a sticky back on it, like this white lace one I have. Measure out the amount you need to surround the bottom of the jar and cut leaving a little flap in excess Measure length of ribbon 
  5. Remove the protective paper so that the sticky back is exposed Expose the adhesive 
  6. Apply straight to the glass jar, ensuring to take the time to keep it straight Apply to the jar 
  7. Repeat this process at the top of the jar as well Repeat at the top
  8. With plain ribbon, you can use either liquid glue or double sided tape to attach it to the glass jars. Measure slightly more than you need to allow the two ends of the ribbon to overlap slightly                                                         Measure length of ribbon
  9. Apply a dot of liquid glue to the jar and attach the first end (make sure to hold until it sticks). Then wrap it around and place another glue dot on top of the ribbon in the same spot as before, sealing the second endGlue the jar
