    You will need
    -A mason jar
    -Glass paint
    -Nail varnish remover (with acetone)
    -Bowl
    -Small piece of fabric
    -Pencil
    -Scissors
    -Glue
    Step 1: Pour a little glass paint into the jar
    Step 2: Add a few drops of nail varnish
    Step 3: Screw the lid back on tightly
    Step 4: Tip the jar, rotating it slowly. Cover all the glass as evenly as possible
    Step 5: Tip out the excess liquid into a bowl. Don’t worry about trying to get every last drop out as this will cause streaking
    Step 6: Place your fabric on the table. Use the flat part of the lid as a template to draw round onto the wrong side of the fabric
    Step 7: Cut out carefully
    Step 8: Glue the fabric to the top of the lid
    Time to fill our jar with gifts. We’ve chosen a garden theme and chosen items like seed packets and planting sticks. Finish off with twine and a wooden trim
