How would you fasten the cork in the attached image?

I am creating a gag gift where the jar will contain imitation pills. I do not want the top to come off in the packaging or while the gift is being opened. Once the gift is opened it will stand upright and the cork will not fall out. The simplest way is to run a piece of cellophane tape across the top but are there any better ideas? Maybe a ribbon completely over the top and under the bottom might work with a little tape to hole it.


"hold" it in the last line.

Update 2:

I've decided on plastic wrap either covering the whole thing or just the top. If I only cover the top it will cling to the glass better than aluminum.

    Tie a couple of bits of ribbon round  - it will make it look more of a gift.
