Hi everyone! It is Monday night and I am spent. I got up and exercised before heading over to the landfill to see if I could find Tom's pen (see yesterday's post for an explanation). No luck. The truck was dumped and the garbage covered, whatever that means. All it means to me is that the pen is gone and I can get on with my life. ;) Then I decorated for Christmas!!! I have a bunch of things to show you coming up in December.
Today I want to share how to make your very own apothecary jars for under $10 that I did for a guest post earlier this month. These are awesome for any season because you can pick one color for the base and lid, then fill the jars with candies to suit the season.
Step #1: A trip to the thrift store where I bought three mason jars and three different sized vases for a total of $3.75.
Step #2: Wash those suckers. I used the dishwasher, but you could hand wash them if you want to deal with it.
Step #3: Spray paint the vases.
Step #4: Glue the mason jar lids to the rims, and then glue the knobs (I got mine on clearance at Ikea) to the lids. I used super glue for this step.
Step #5: Spray paint the lids the same color as the vases.
Step #6: Gorilla Glue the mason jars to the top of the vases. This glue works like a charm!
Linking up at the great Linky parties found at the bottom of the blog. They are where I find most of my inspiration! Check them out!
