My friend is getting married and has been longing for some Apothecary Jars. I decided there has got to be way to make these without spending big bucks....well lucky for me (and you!) I found a way!
I stopped by my local Dollar Tree and picked up some supplies. I found 2 candle stick holders ($1 each) and 2 hurricane candle holders ($1 each). I then went over to my local craft store to find something to use as a lid. I happened upon the perfect sized teal light holders that fit perfectly into my hurricane glasses. They ended up being $1.99 each. I then found 2 wood pegs to serve as my handles. I then got a mini glass glue tube ($3.99). So my total for 2 apothecary jars came to about $14.00 after tax!
I painted my wood pegs with white acrylic paint and then put a layer of modge podge on for sealer. I followed the directions on the glass glue that were very simple. Put it on and let it set for a few minutes then stick together. I did a layer of glue on the candlestick holders and then on the peg for the lid. I let them sit overnight. I now have a beautiful (and thrifty) bridal shower gift for my friend! I may have to make myself a couple also!
