Step 2: Cut 2 pieces of each of the yellow, pink, purple, and blue rick rack each about 13 inches long.

Step 3: Glue one piece of yellow rick rack at the very top of the wide part of the jar, securing it in place on the back of the jar with a hot glue gun, and glue a second piece of yellow rick rack just below it.

Step 4: Move down the jar about ½ inch and repeat the process with the pink rick rack.

Step 5: Repeat the process with the purple and then the blue rick rack.
