  3. Using a clean 1-inch flat brush, paint one 8-ounce and one 16-ounce jar using Sugar Cube glitter paint. Apply as many coats as desired; let dry.

  4. Once your mason jar lids are dry, measure and cut enough ribbon to fit around the outside. Using your hot glue gun, glue the ribbons around the outside of each lid. Refer to project photo for placement.
