This was a quick and easy little project I did with my 3 year old the other day.
What you'll need:
A glass jar, some orange tissue paper, black card-stock or construction paper, a green or brown ribbon, a small piece of double sided tape, mod podge (I had Elmer's glue on hand, but didn't try it because I borrowed some mod podge), a tea light and a foam brush. Oh, and scissors!
Cut the Orange Tissue paper into strips about an inch or so wide and the length of the jar from the bottom lip of the threading down across the bottom of the jar. The ribbon will go over the threading, so it should go around and overlap the ends about an inch.
After you have all the strips on the sides of the jar, put a layer of mod podge on the bottom of the jar. Then fold the ends over, placing a bit of mod podge under each strip.
When it is dry, place a small piece of double sided tape on one end of the ribbon, attach it to the jar, wrap around and use another piece of the double sided tape to attach the other end.
