Plug in light strand and see if any bulbs are burned
out and need to be replaced. Arrange light strand and potpourri in canning jar
while lights are on so you'll be able to get it just right and be able to see
what it will look like when it's finished.
Place doily or fabric on top of jar, arranging the cord of the
light strand so it's coming out where you want the back to be. Tie some ribbon
around the neck of the jar to hold the fabric in place. When you get it arranged
the way you like it, use the hot glue gun to glue the fabric and ribbon down in
several places so it will hold.
Decorate the outside of the jar with festive decorations like
pine cones or artificial holly berries. Craft stores have a variety of holiday
decorations you can cut apart and re-arrange any way you like.
Experiment with different potpourri scents. The lights in the
jar will warm up the potpourri and help the scent fill the room. These jars are
very pretty and will look different depending on if you use clear or colored
lights. These are great for last-minute present ideas or hostess gifts. Happy
