Step 1:

Cover the sides with filler. Use hot glue to secure it in place.  Trace the jar on a piece of paper and make a smaller one inside. Cut the small circle and glue it on the bottom of the jar.

Step 2:

Cover the jar with the dark beige sock, and insert it from the bottom. Use a needle to fix the filler. Cut the excess fabric and glue it on the bottom of the jar.

Step 3:

Take one of your burgundy socks and flip it right side out. Measure from the middle of your jar to the center on the bottom, then mark it on your sock. Draw a curve on that end. Secure it with a pin and sew the curve. Put it into the bottom of the jar.  On the foot part of your sock, remove the heel and the curved front. Cut it into pieces. Get one and cut it again in half – do the same for the other. Glue it on one end and fold the other end to make strips. Glue one strip on the left of the jar from the top of the light beige sock to the burgundy. Repeat on the right side.  Make the last two strips into a cross on the back.

Step 4:

Place the lid and mark the center of the two strips. Remove it again. Get the curve part of the dark beige sock and fill it with fillers. Glue the ends around the lid.
