1. Wrap the LEDlights in masking tape to create a soft, natural glow.
2. Fill the jar with a mix of pine cones, LED lights, and a few red leaves.
3. Burn your Initials (i.e. K.B.+W.C.) into the wooden disk, and pierce a hole with the drill at the top to hang it.
4. Push the end of the suede tie through the hole in the disc, knot it, and tie it around the mouth of the jar, leaving the disc dangling. Tie a few more pieces of suede tie around the jar for more effect.
5. Wrap wired twine around the mouth of the jar, leaving a long length on one side to bend into a handle, attaching it to the other side by twisting it onto the existing wire.
