Hi this is my first post here. I am new to this site. I have recently moved to Japan and am trying to make Christmas decorations without spending money.
1. Pour black paint into bottle and drain. I used a empty water bottle with the sides folded in to catch the excess.

2. Paint the lids and drawer knob black and set aside to dry
Glue the sauce lid onto the centre of the jam jar lid. Then glue the drawer knob onto the centre of the mason jar lid
Glue the mason lid onto the bottom of the jam jar and the attach to the sauce bottle using the glued on lids.
Easy as. Now all it needs is some trimmings. :)
Here is another one in red. This time I used a plastic water bottle cap and 2 beads instead of a drawer knob.
Suggested materials:
  • Sauce bottle, jam jar
  • Mason jar lid, drawer knob
  • Black paint, glue gun, tea light
