Sand off all the rough edges with a 90 grit sandpaper. Now you are ready to stain your base wood the stain color of your choice. Our favorite is a water based stain made by Olympic called "espresso". Apply the stain to all surfaces with a good quality brush using straight strokes in the same direction of the wood grain. Wipe wet stain off immediately with a dry cotton rag or old T shirt.

Place your first mason jar on top of the twine and wrap the bottom piece of twine around the mouth of the jar. Tie your first bow. Then tie a simple knot on each side with the second string on each side of the jar. Repeat these steps for the second jar.

Adding the fairy tale lights is so magical! Unwrap your copper LED fairy tale lights and neatly push them into the jars. Tape the on/off switch to the inside of each Mason jar lid to hide it from view. Repeat for the second jar.

    I intend to try it, but I am disappointed that Christmas is so far away, LOL. Ah well, it gives me plenty of time to make gifts for my whole family! Thanks for the lovely idea!
