Step 4: Decorating the Jar
First, tied a ribbon through the card so that it can be used to tie it around the cap of mason Jar cap. To further decorate I have glued small size bay leaf on the instruction card. Then put weight for 5 min or so for the glue to dry up.
Second I took a nice paper and cut it round to use it as a cape around the jar. U can use cloth or even large cupcake liner to decorate the lid.
Lastly, I took holly berries and glued it on top to give a christmas feel.
