  • Apply the vinyl transfer to the bottom third of the glass jar and carefully remove the transfer tape.
  • To assemble the Beach Photo Jar, fill one-third of the jar with clean, dry sand.
  • Place your photo of interest inside the jar and place it standing up in the sand. Insert your faux greenery in front and in behind the photo.
  • Add in the seashells
