One glass jar

Mod podge


Decorative napkin


Paint brush

Wood beads


Faux fall floral

Optional- battery operated tealight candle

Start by taking your glass jar and applying your paint. I left the top section of my glass jar clear. I only applied paint starting at the middle and ending at the bottom of my glass jar.

Next, take your napkin and remove the second layer. Once you have removed the second layer, use your scissors and begin to cut one section of your napkin.

Begin to add your mod podge to the painted section on your glass jar.

Take your napkin pieces, and begin to add them over the mod podge. Be sure to cut out any designs you will want to display on your glass jar.

Take your beads and begin to string them onto a section of your twine. Once you have added a few beads, cut and tie a knot on the bottom, and top section of your twine. Be sure to leave a little extra twine on the top section of your beads.

Next, take your twine and wrap the twine around your glass just above the decorative napkin. Wrap it around a few times. Once you have done this, take your scissors and cut off the end of your twine. Tie off your twine. Be sure to leave just a little twine so that you can add your twine with your beads to it.

Take your wood beads, and add them to your jar. I tied my twine around the section of twine that was left over after I wrapped my twine around my jar.

If you decide to use a battery operated tealight candle, add it in before adding in your floral. I love how it gives a soft glow.

Your glass jar decoration is now complete. I hope that you enjoyed this simple craft. Be sure to let me know if you create your very own. Thank you so much for creating with me. I'll see you soon.

    It's so lovely and cute. I don't want fall to come yet. it means cold and snow is around the corner.

    William, thank you! I hear you about the cold, and snow. I am not looking forward to the snow over where I live. But I am also over the heat! -- Thanks so much for stopping by. I love hearing from all of you! 😊
