Step 7: Pour

Take one of the cups and pour it in slowly, you don't have to put all of it in. In this picture I noticed I needed more cotton balls, so I added more. The cotton balls shrink too so keep that in mind.

Step 8: Layer

Now repeat those steps but instead use a different color to pour in. Keep doing that ti'll you get to the top.

If you want it to look prettier take some star wire and wrap it around the jar cap. Then twist and cut it off it the back! Now it looks even more amazing.
