We decide to start with the lid first.  We took to ribbons and layered them to cover the sides or the lid.   We used felt to cover the top by cutting out a circle that covered the top.

The next thing we did was wrap a purple ribbon around the jar using glue to adhere the ribbon.

When then decide to add a ribbon to the jar that looked like skirt.  To get the ribbon to look skirt like we pulled the wire out of one side of the ribbon.  This causes the ribbon to begin to ruffle. This can only be done with ribbon that has wire in it for shaping.
