Its simple to do so follow those directions then head back here! You can dry the jars in an oven for quicker crafting or let them dry overnight. We explain both on the post!

Download the free pattern sheet and choose which ones you will use. We tried cutting out the printed pattern and use it directly from our printer, however the ink ran when we glued it to the inside of our jar. If you’d like to try that we suggest spraying the page with a setting solution such as clear acrylic spray. Hair spray might even work though we’ve not tried it. This “might” keep the ink from running. The next way to do it is to use the download as a pattern and tape it onto a black piece of paper or construction paper. (Not cardstock)
Using an X-acto knife carefully cut out your pattern.
This shows the cut out pattern from black paper.
For the arrows you will need to cut out the feather sections.
This shows several of the items cut out.
To insert your cut out into your jar you will need some Mod Podge or regular white glue.
Quickly paint the front of your cut out with Mod Podge or glue.
Insert it inside the jar.
Align it where you want it to be and press it in place.
You can now decorate the top of your jar with string and other items.
We chose some feathers to attach to ours to add to the Boho look.
We also attached on some artificial greenery.
They can be used as is but are best used with a battery operated tea light in them. They are beautiful at night!
