here is a super simple project to recycle glass jars...



1.  collect and wash glass jars (ok, cut the bs...)
2.  wrap a length of wide lace trim around the belly of the jar
3.  use double-sided tape to stick down the slightly overlap area of the trim at the back of the jar
4.  use a needle to thread a piece of colored yarn through the top of the trim and finish off by tieing a bow

wah-la!!  finish!!  isn't that a piece of cake!?!?   Grin
now put in your freshly cut flowers or leaves and enjoy!!   Cheesy

your vases are very pretty, but i must confess the main reason i commented was to ask, is that kudzu in the background?

I like this idea, it helps to unify all the odd glass bottles you have lying around. Thanks

I've been using glass vases for awhile but I never thought to put such cute lace decorations on them.

A-FREAKING-MAZING view by the way.  Where are you?

I suspect she's in Hong Kong. The lace is a delicious addition - pretty pretty! But holy cow, I'm with everyone else who is just stunned at the incredible view out your window...
