Begin by wrapping a piece of burlap ribbon around the jar to get the correct measurement. You want the ribbon to overlap itself by an inch or so. Once you have the correct length, cut the ribbon then use that piece to measure and cut the rest for however many centerpieces you are making.
Use that burlap ribbon as a guide to measure out your checkerboard ribbon. Cut the ribbon with a little overlap on both ends. Use that piece of ribbon to cut the rest of the ribbon pieces that you need.
Place the checkerboard ribbon on top of the burlap ribbon so that each end overlaps. Hot glue the ribbon to the burlap, then fold the ribbon ends over the burlap ends and glue to the back.
Position the finished ribbon onto the glass jar and use a little hot glue to tack it in place.
NOTE: glass is a not porous surface and hot glue will stick to it but will not hold. This is just to help you hold it in place as you work.
Wrap the ribbon around the jar as snug as you can and glue the ends, one over the top of the other. This is what will hold the ribbon in place, so you want it to be snug.
To measure out the twine, wrap it around the jar and make sure you have enough to tie a bow. Use that piece to measure out the remaining twine pieces.
Find the middle of the twine and use hot glue to tack it to the ribbon where the two ends (of the burlap and ribbon) overlap each other. Wrap the twine around the jar and tie it into a bow. Trim the ends if needed.
