  6. Insert the lids into the bands. Cut pieces of floral foam to one-inch heights and hot glue inside one of the lids. This will ensure that the lids will not come loose from the bands. Glue the two bands together, making sure that the faces on each side are facing the same way.

  8. Starting at the knot of twine, glue the burlap strip around the band, covering the twine, except for the top where the knot is.
