Two Dollar Apothecary Jar!

Or shall I say Four Dollars for TWO Apothecary Jars???

Wanna See?

I know they're not REAL Apothecary Jars...mainly because I made them. But I still think they look cool! And they were only two bucks a piece! BONUS!

I've been seeing a bazillion posts with jars and candlesticks and cake trays and goodie tiers and what-nots. So, I was cruising my Dollar Tree the other day and I found these tall vases and these short taper candlestick holders.

I bought two of each! Then I came home and grabbed my Krazy Glue. I ran a beading of glue around the rim of the candlestick holder and connected it to the bottom of the vase.

After a minute, they were stuck glue! Still, I let it set upside down for a few hours. Then I put them on the piano!

But they looks so EMPTY! And since tomorrow is March...they needed to be Irished Up!

Much Better! Pom Poms! The PERFECT accessory!

What a smart idea! I am going to look for cheap glass now when I go to the dollar store. I saw some really nice big glass jars at Home Goods but they were like $15.
