STEP 2
Loop a piece of white cord around the top of your jar and tie into a knot.

TIP:  Rubber band
HERE’S A TIME-SAVING TIP THAT WILL MAKE THIS DIY PROJECT EVEN EASIER:

Fasten the piece of fabric around the lid with a rubber band.
This will secure the fabric and make your project childishly simple.

You can see it in the picture, it’s in green.
