Hanging JarsWhat you'll need

Materials


Here's How

  1. Cut a piece of jute long enough to go around the neck of the jar plus to tie a knot. Do not tie the jute around the jar neck yet.
  2. Cut four 40" pieces of jute. Fold each piece in half and tie to the neck rope with full hitch knots.
  3. Tie the neck rope around the jar, and then space the four ropes evenly around the jar.
  4. Take one rope from each adjacent pair and tie a square knot at approximately a 45° angle.
  5. Repeat step 4 all around the jar.
  6. Move down to create another row, repeating step 4 all around the jar.
  7. Repeat step 6 to the bottom of the jar.
  8. At the bottom, tie ends with a square knot and then cut one string off on all four sections.
  9. Pull the remaining four ropes to the bottom of the jar, and tie together in the centre. Trim loose ends.
  10. Place the battery pack on the bottom of the jar and distribute the string of lights. A mini adhesive clip on the jar lid will help keep the lights evenly distributed and prevent the lights from falling to the bottom.
