  1. Prepare the Mason jars by removing the lids and cleaning the glass with rubbing alcohol. When dry, paint the jars with two coats of White Multi-Surface acrylic paint. Let dry in between coats.
  2. Place the napkin around the jar and trim using scissors to the correct height.
  3. Separate the napkin ply keeping only the top printed layer.
  4. Apply a coat of Mod Podge Matte to the painted canning jar. Lay the top layer of napkin over the wet Mod Podge and gently smooth in place by tapping with your fi nger.
  5. Seal the napkin with a topcoat of the Mod Podge Matte. Let dry completely.
  6. Repeat the same steps for each jar.
  7. Drill a small hole at the edge of the wood slices. Using a fi ne point permanent black marker, label the wood slice with each jar’s contents. Add a 12” piece of twine or ribbon to the wood slice.
  8. Replace the outer lid ring to each jar. NOTE: Do not incorporate the metal disc. Tie the label wood slices onto each jar.
  9. As a sound barrier, cut a round piece of felt to place inside the jar. This will not only protect the glass, it will also lessen the sound when replacing items.
