  1. Use the masking tape to mark off a strip in the centre of the jar to paint. You can paint the whole jar, if you’d prefer.
  2. Paint the jar and allow to dry. Repeat if necessary.
  3. Once the paint is dry, lie the jar flat and glue on the reindeer’s eyes and nose.
  4. Glue the pipe cleaners to the lid.
