For any jars you want to add glitter to: place newspaper down on the surface you are working on; put masking tape over any area of the jar you don’t want covered in glitter; spray adhesive on theĀ  glass and quickly pour on the glitter, shaking off any excess; continue until all areas you want are covered; re-spray and glitter a second time if there are any gaps.

For the twine and tape jars: simply place a tiny amount of glue on the jar where you want the twine to start, and wrap the twine around the jar several times, overlapping it as you go; place a small amount of glue where you decide to end the line of twine; line up the washi tape and, turning the jar, stick it around the whole of the jar, trying to keep it as straight as possible.
