My Crocheted Jar Toppers!!

I had all these jars...
So I decided to crochet my
own tops for them.
I looked online for ideas and didn't
 find anything I liked.
 So I made my own Jar Toppers
hope you like them too!

If you have any questions just leave a
comment or send me an email.

Happy Crocheting!
