Steps:

  1. Measure and cut a strip of wax paper that would fit around the jar.
  2. Glue 10mm wide decorative lace tape to the top and bottom of the strip of wax paper, and cut off any protruding edges.
  3. Cut butterflies from the second decorative tape, and glue them to the wax paper in between the lace tape borders added to the top and bottom.
  4. Use a medium heat setting and lightly iron the wax paper so that the lace tape borders and butterflies will thoroughly stick to the wax paper. Allow to cool down before continuing.

  6. Use a piece of sellotape to secure the one short end of the wax paper to the jar. Wrap the wax paper tightly around the jar and secure again with sellotape where it overlaps.
  7. Mix Modge Podge and Rolkem dusting powder in the small plastic bowl. Use the paintbrush and dab some of the mixture on to the waxed paper, making sure that you do not dab over the butterflies or over the border. Use the mixture to paint the parts of the jar that protrude above and below the wax paper. Allow to dry thoroughly.

  9. Cut a border pattern from the gold embroidered net lace fabric and use Bostik to glue it around the neck of the jar. Cut five small flowers from the same fabric and glue them around the neck of the jar to add the finishing touches.
  10. Add the lights and voila!
