1. Cut the tip of the Flex Glue Clear tube with scissors. Try to cut near the base to make sure glue can come out. Our glue is easy-to-use, super strong, rubberized, and waterproof.

2. Place wooden panel face up on your work surface.

3. Align glass jars on the wood pallet to ensure even spacing. Taking one glass jar at a time, apply a generous amount of glue to the lower half of the glass jar to the side you’re bonding.

4. Place glass jar back on wood pallet, applying firm pressure for 10-30 seconds. You have about 10 minutes to re-position the glass jar after applying glue if needed. Repeat until all glass jars are glued onto the wood pallet.

5. Taking one accessory at a time, apply glue to the bottom and bond inside glass jar. Be sure to apply firm pressure when gluing each object for 10-30 seconds. The accessories we glued were artificial Christmas trees.

6. If desired, use scissors to cut any family photos so that they fit inside of glass jar. Glue photo(s) inside of glass jar, applying firm pressure for 10-30 seconds.

7. Once all accessories are glued inside each glass jar, grab your wood pallet and place on a flat surface, like a table. Set aside for 24 to 48 hours to allow the glue to cure.

8. After glue is fully cured, put the wood pallet up against a flat surface, like a wall. Decorate the inside of the glass jars with any loose fillers of your liking. We used artificial snow, Flex Seal merchandise, and Flex Seal products to represent our Flex Seal Family.

9. Once glass jars are decorated, place lid on them to close.

10. You can decorate the glass jar lids with ribbons, fabric toppers, etc. We used red ribbon and added decorative bells for our lids.

11. Personalize the wood pallet by using a white marker, paint or chalk to write your family name. We wrote “Happy Holidays” on ours. You can use it as a table-top display, or use mounting hardware to hang it on the wall.

Now, this year and every year you hang this up, you’ll remember just how fun it was to make this together as a family.

NOTE: The glue begins to dry quickly when opened. After use, we recommend squeezing a small bead from the opening to form a plug. Simply cut the plug when you want to reuse.
