Old Jars

 I'll be filing this project under the category-things I don't know why I felt the need to make, but....I definitely needed to make them.  I've been seeing jars in all the craft stores lately decorated with tags and pictures.  I don't know why I like them, other than the fact that I like old glass anything, but.....I 'needed' some in my house. 
I found some old jars at an antique store for a steal, probably because they are, like, 5 years old, someone just didn't clean or dust them, so now they look about 30 years old....
 I ripped some strips of muslin so it would look frayed, and I cut burlap, pulling a few strands off the sides, again, a little fraying. 
 I glued those down, and then added some old lace I bought at an antique store, and then a flower I made using this method to the second jar.  I'm sure these will eventually get something to fill them or jazz them up, but for now I can check 'decorate old jars' off my to do list, trust me....it needed to get done.
