How to make a sequined Mason jar

Redesigning a Mason jar is a great way to extend its purpose from simply holding preserves to giving home décor a boost. Although a Mason jar usually delivers a country-themed touch, there’s no reason not to add some sparkle to the mix. The glass enhances the glittering effect, making the final product an eye-catching addition to any shelf or table.
This sequined Mason jar project requires nothing more than three preferred sequin colors and a hot-glue gun. With options to mix and match the sparkling material, this is a project that kids and adults both can enjoy.

Instructions
 
1. Set the Mason jar on a flat surface, mouth side up.
2. Apply a dab of hot glue near the base of the jar. Press the end of a string of silver sequins to the glue to firmly attach.
3. Wrap the string of silver sequins around the bottom of the Mason jar, applying glue at various points to ensure the sequins are secured around the entire base.
4. Continue wrapping and gluing the silver sequins around the base of the jar, allowing the loops to overlap slightly so that the glass is not visible between the sequins.
5. When you've completed eight rotations, cut the sequin string from the spool and glue the end to the jar.
6. Beginning directly above the top loop of silver sequins, repeat this process with three loops of blue sequins.
7. Beginning directly above the top loop of blue sequins, repeat this process with five loops of white sequins. When complete, the sequins should reach approximately halfway up the Mason jar.
