Canning Jar Wreath Continued

Here is the finished wreath, I call it "Come In And Eat Some Home Cookin"
Just some random found objects that I have had waiting for the right project. I was thinking of selling it on Esty but have decided to keep it. There was actually other things I was going to put on etsy but never got around to it this summer.
Now with the school year ready to start, Junkin Jane will be slowing down even more. Thanks for the great comments, wish I had more time to look around all the great blogs out there. Sometimes I get to look at them but commenting takes more effort for me. Hope everyone had a great summer!

Canning Jar Lid Wreath

I haves seen these a couple of times here on the WWW and I knew I wanted to make one. I had some but needed more, I got some from my Mom and then one day I found some at a yard sale so I bout them, The lady said as I was leaving "Happy Canning" little did she know...
Held together with a heavy wire and twisted tight to keep the lids in a circle.
Not quite as rusty as I would like, I could let them outside so they could rust up more.
But I decided to do more to it, I will post the other pics later, but for now,

Happy Canning!
