Coat the surface with primer. Allow to dry.

Apply the acrylic paint in the colors of your choice .  Allow to dry.

Cut out the parts you need from the napkin.

Divide the napkin by removing all the white layers. It is only the patterned top layer of the napkin you want to use.

Add decoupage glue on the surface you want to place the napkin.

Lay a piece of your cut napkin onto the area to which you applied the glue. Place carefully the pattern from top outward (pressing with your fingers) in order to avoid air bubbles.

Add a second layer of decoupage glue all over the napkin. Allow to dry.

Apply a coat of varnish all over the jar. Allow to dry.
