  • When you see that jars are dry, wrap some packing string or yarn around them.
  • Wrap the jars in criss-cross style and keep it wrapping until you like what you see.

  • Make it sure that you are not wrapping the whole jar, you need to make only a pattern.
  • When done, tie a not from the leftovers of the string from both the sides and cut out the knot.

  • It is better to keep a sheet or any other paper while spraying the jars so that the surface and other things around don’t get affected by the paint.
