$1 DIY Glass Apothecary Jar



At Christmas I saw a lot of glass apothecary jar displays and fell in love with them.

The cost of purchasing one new was not so lovely though. 

Then I saw some posts where you could combine glassware to make your own!  Woohoo!

So I went through my stash of jars and this is what I came up with.  

From this...


To this ...


Or even this ...


Love that I can change it round depending on the look I want.  

I can see lovely candles in it most the year and a gorgeous snowy scenes at Christmas!


And guess what, both items were 50 cents each at yard sales.  Therefore my total spend was $1!!!

  3. I've also been eyeing the apothecary jars, why didn't they go on a massive sale like all the other Christmas things? This is a great solution!
