DIY Apothecary Jars


I found two aqua drawer pulls while shopping
with my daughter recently and instantly fell
in love with them.  But there were only two 
left, and I didn’t need them but home they came.
Inspiration hits eventually.
I have seen so many pretty cupcake liner holders
and decorated jars online I thought I would
combine the two.  Here is what I did…


two recycled jars (jelly or spaghetti sauce size are great)
two small glass candle holders (Dollar Tree)
E-6000 glue & fine sandpaper
Spray paint in color of your choice
Drawer pulls or knobs
I used two good coats of spray paint on the lids
and candle holders.  Once they were dry, I used
my glue to attach the knobs to the lids, and the 
candle holders to the bottom of the jars.
I let the glue cure overnight, and used a bit
of sandpaper to distress the edges of the lid and 
base next.
Fill with stuff you love. 
I am so ready for Spring!
