Step one:  Remove labels from jars and clean.  I left one jar clear and tinted the other one.  I used Mod Podge that was tinted, but you can make your own by simply mixing a bit of food coloring or alcohol ink with regular Mod Podge.  Coat the inside of the jar with tinted Mod Podge and let it dry.

Step two:  Wrap a piece of burlap around the jar.  I used hot glue to hold it in place.

Step three:  Wrap a piece of lace around the burlap and glue in place.

All that’s left to do is fill the jar with your favorite plant or flower.  I used succulents because I was copying the store item, but these would look just as pretty with flowers or decorative branches inserted.  These decorated jars would look great on a mantle, or make pretty centerpieces for a party.  Have fun crafting and creating!
