  2. Paint the outside of the jars with the frost paint. it will appear streaky at first, but as you work your paintbrush over the glass, smoothing the surface out as you go, the paint will become more uniform. Allow it to dry for one hour.
     
  3. Spray the painted jars with sealer and let dry.
     
  4. Snip wire into 2-foot lengths. Find the center of your length of wire and hold it against the rim of the jar. Wrap both ends of wire around the rim and twist together to hold in place.

  5. Continue wrapping the wire, leaving a few inches at each end to add beads. Twist wire together again to keep it from unraveling.

  6. Bend wire upward so that when you thread your beads on they won't fall off.

  7. After adding your beads, use the round nose plier to curl the end of the wire to prevent your beads from falling off, and to add a decorative touch.

  8. Try variations by adding some beads to the wire that wraps around the jar rim.
     
  9. These are very pretty lit up at night as well! Use tea light candles or LED tea lights inside the jars.
