I use 1 gallon jars with a lid for my sugar and flour. I like to keep them on the counter for easy access. The only flaw with this was that I had to lift the jars to avoid scratching the counter. They can become awkward when handling.
I came up with an idea to make crocheted wraps for the bottoms.
I used Peaches & Creme Cotton Yarn.
Now, they slide easily across the counter.
I have posted the pattern here.
