Step One
Remove the stopper from your jar and set aside. Lay down some paper because you’ll probably spill! Fill the jar up to the base of the neck with the Hundreds & Thousands or you can use small coloured beads instead if you prefer. I found it easier to pour them into my hand first instead of straight from the tube into the jar.

Step Two
Take your cork stopper and hold in firmly between your fingers with the fattest end sticking out. Hold your eye hook screw with the sharp end pointed at the centre of the stopper – you may find it easier to hold the eye hook screw with a pair of jewellery pliers – and twist it into the cork like you’re opening a bottle of wine. Remember!! Righty-Tighty/Lefty-Loosey.

Step Three
Paste some E6000 glue onto your spatula and paint it around the body of the cork (the sides, not the top or bottom!). Pop your stopper back inside the bottle and push down so it’s secure. If it’s designed properly it shouldn’t be possible to push it too far in.

Step Four
Decorate the jar as you wish! I cut a strip from this sweet candy striped paper as I thought the scalloped edge would make a lovely touch. You could also use washi tape, fabric tape, ribbon, twine.. the only limit is your imagination ;) Glue this down using a scraping of E6000 for a long lasting design.

Step Five
Leave the cork and the decor to dry for at least 24 hours.

Step Six
Make up a necklace chain or use one from an old necklace you already own and thread it through the eye hook. I used a jump ring to connect my eye hook to the chain. Hang it round yer’ neck and wear your design with a gleeful smile!
