Start with old wood whether it's pallet wood, barn wood, or any piece that has nail holes, knots, cracks etc. Cut two boards 14" in length. Using a palm sander, sand the corners and edges of the board to make it look more weathered and to soften the lines. I then painted each piece with Gray Milk Paint. You could use a regular gray paint.
I then purchased an item called "Antiquing Wax" in black. This is applied lightly with a soft rag in a circular pattern. It tends to collect in the cracks and crevices so it gives the wood some awesome depth and character!

We then came down 2 1/2 from top of each board and centered a screw hook. We then fastened chain to the length we desired onto the lids of the jars.

      We drilled a hole through the side of the lid and opened one of the links in the chain to hook through it
