  • Lay jar down at one short end of the fish net and glue edge of netting to jar.
  • Roll jar along the netting stretching netting at top and bottom of jar as you go. When you reach the edge where you started glue in place and trim excess netting.
  • Turn jar down with opening on the work surface. Facing the bottom of the jar pull netting and glue in place. Now trim excess netting.
  • Turn jar up with opening on top. Take jute and glue end right where jar lid would screw in place (about 1/2” from the top of the jar. Wrap jute around the opening and glue as you go.
