Instructions
1. Remove the lid and band from the mason jar and cover the outside of the jar with a coat of chalk paint. There is no need to paint the ridges of the jar where the lid screws on.
2. Cut a piece of chicken wire the same size as the jar band using wire cutters.
3. Hot glue the chicken wire inside the jar band. Make sure the hot glue is set before screwing the band onto the jar.
4. Glue a piece of lace ribbon around the outside edge of the band and screw the band on top of the jar.
