    Step 2: Apply Decoupage Technique

    Using a brush, apply decoupage glue to a small section of the jar. Place the fabric pieces on the glue-covered area and add another layer of decoupage on top. Repeat this process until the entire jar is covered.

    Step 3: Let It Dry and Add Final Touches

    Set the jar aside and allow it to dry completely. This may take a few hours, depending on the climate and the number of layers applied. For extra charm, seniors can tie decorative ribbons or twine around the neck of the jar. This step adds a lovely finishing touch to the project.
