How to Make Christmas Gnome Jars
It’s best to make sure there isn’t anything on the inside or outside of the jars, so give them a wipe. If you’re feeling frisky, wipe the outside with rubbing alcohol. If you have a playlist on YouTube to which you’d like to add this project, here is our Gnome Mason Jar video tutorial.
