Allow to dry for 10 minutes then top coat with a layer (or two) of Mod Podge. Allow to dry.
  2. Apply sports themed cutouts to the jar in the same fashion as step1. Allow to dry.
  3. Using a Mod Melter and Sea Glass Sticks, attach the cork letters to the jar.  Spell your coaches name, add a year or a school name.
