Steps:

  1. Remove the label, wash the jar and allow to dry upside down overnight. Tip: If necessary, use mineral turpentine to remove any glue residue from where the label was stuck.
  2. Paint a substantial amount of Modge Podge around the jar. Wrap the strip of net fabric around the jar. Brush Modge Podge over the net fabric so that the net fabric will be between two layers of Modge Podge. Then, use the hairdryer to thoroughly dry the Modge Podge.
  3. Floating Hearts Valentine's Jar Light - apply Modge Podge and then net fabric, covered with a second application of Modge Podge

  4. Measure a strip of lace that would fit around the top of the jar. Paint a substantial amount of Modge Podge around the top of jar. Wrap the strip of lace around the top of the jar. Brush Modge Podge over the lace and use the hairdryer to thoroughly dry the Modge Podge.
  5. Repeat step 3 to add lace around the bottom of the jar.
  6. Floating Hearts Valentine's Jar Light - using Modge Podge attach the pink lace to the top and bottom of the jar in the same way as the net fabric
     
  7. Make the floating hearts: Put the first felt heart onto the sugar paper and use the pencil to trace around the felt heart. Remove the felt heart and cut out the heart traced onto the sugar paper. Add glue to the back of the felt heart and glue a skewer to the felt heart. Glue the sugar paper to the back to keep the skewer in place. Make the other six floating hearts in the same way, cutting the ends of the skewers to different lengths.
