Transform a simple glass jar into an enchanting centerpiece with this DIY craft. Adorned with intricately arranged jute in a stunning diamond pattern, this rustic-inspired jar adds a touch of warmth and elegance to any space!

Let's Get Started


A)    Apply a dab of hot glue to the neck of the jar.

B)    Press the end of the jute into the hot glue. Pull the jute taut at an angle, then hot glue it to the bottom of the jar.

C)   You will use this angle to start the pattern for each section.

D)   Cut the jute after the glue sets.


A)    Hot glue the end of the jute to the neck of the jar again, about 1/4" away from the first strand.

B)    Pull the jute taut at an angle, running it parallel to the first strand. Hot glue the jute to the bottom of the jar and cut it once the glue sets.


A)    Glue another two strands to the jar in the same direction, for a total of four strands.

B)    Glue four strands on top of those from Steps 1 and 2, in the opposite direction, using the same technique.


A)    To keep the pattern even on the jar, work on the opposite side, gluing four strands in the same direction as Step 3A. Glue four strands in the opposite direction over the top, like those in Step 3B.


A)    Fill in one of the empty sides with the same jute diamond pattern.

B)    Fill in the last side with the jute diamond pattern.


A)    Wrap jute around the neck of the jar to hide the ends. Use hot glue to secure the jute in place.


A)    Paint the lid of the jar gold. Let dry.

B)    Paint small wood beads gold. Let dry. Note: Use as many as you’d like to make the feet of the jar.

C)   Hot glue the beads onto the lid.
