  • 2. Clean all surfaces with isopropyl alcohol, wipe gently and let dry.

  • Step 2
  • 3. Decorate the first mason jar by tying ribbon around the top of the jar.

  • Step 3
  • 4. To adhere one Command™ Clear Mini Hook to the front of the mason jar, remove the black "wall side" liner and press the adhesive strip directly to the jar. Remove the blue liner and press the mini hook directly to the adhesive, making sure the tab is accessible for future removal.
