  2. Using a 3/4" flat brush (the softer, the better) apply two coats of paint to the jars. Use the vertical lines (on both sides of jar; each jar has four) as a guide and leave the two sections unpainted (clear). Paint Jar 1: Lipstick/Pumpkin Patch; Jar 2: School Bus/Turf Green (see photo); Jar 3 True Blue/Iris.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Cut jute into three pieces and drag each piece through the paint with the brush: one in each color combination from step 2, blending from one color to the other.
