Step 2 Place the loose ends of the twine through  the loop and pull tight.


Play with how the Lifesaver and the letters face to get the look you want. Letters up with loop showing in front, letters hidden with loop in back, etc. The placement will give your table a different feel so go ahead and try threading the twine different ways to get it just right.

Step 4  Hold the Lifesaver at the front and wrap one end of the twine clockwise, then the other end counter clockwise. Continue wrapping until you  have the desired amount around the neck of your glass milk bottle jar.

Step 5  Tie off with a simple knot pulled tight. Add a dab of hot glue if you are concerned about it coming loose. Most twine is rough so you shouldn't have any issues, but if you use a slippery ribbon or string, you may want to add a bit of glue just to be sure.
