What to do:
Step One: While on a nature hike or playing in your backyard, gather a bunch of long, straight twigs.
Step Two: Break your twigs so that they are an inch longer than the height of the jar.
Step Three: Wrap a rubber band around the neck of jar, about an inch from the top.
Step Four: Wrap another band around the jar, an inch from the bottom.
Step Five: Place the twigs around the jar, tucking the ends under both rubber bands. Space them as closely as possible.
Step Six: When the jar is covered with twigs, slide the rubber bands toward each other, so that they meet in the middle of the jar.
Step Seven: Take a few pieces of twine or ribbon and wrap them around the rubberbands.
Step Eight: To finish the vase off, you can either make a bow with the ribbon, or simply glue the ends in place.
