- Wire cutters
- Glitter spray

1. Trim the ends off the faux pine branches with wire cutters.
2. Place the trimmed branches on a sheet of cardboard and spray them with glitter spray.
3. Remove the lid from the mason jar. Place the first branch inside to make sure it will fit, folding the top of the branch down so it will be on the bottom of the jar.
4. Wrap the end of the string lights around the branch and place it back into the jar. Repeat with as many branches as you need to fill the jar.
5. Tape the light's battery pack to the inside of the lid, and screw the lid back onto the jar.
