Awesome Handmade Apothecary Jars!!!

I originally found this project at Shanty2Chic and absolutely loved them. I just had to make my own. ( I am currently addicted to Apothecary Jars).




Here are the parts you need:
2 unfinished wood finials
2 unfinished wood circles
2 unfinished wood candle sticks
(I got each for 50% off at the Hobby Lobby)





and 2 glass canisters - I paid 2 bucks a piece for them at Home Goods.






I spray painted all of the parts - including the canister lids with a satin nickel finish paint.






This is my first time using Gorilla Glue Epoxy and I am in love with it! Just follow the directions on the package and glue the parts together. I let each glued section dry for about an hour before adding another section.






Here they are finished!




Now I just need to decide what to put in them. Any suggestions?

these are cute - am on a search for nice apothecary jars, myself, at the mo. Maybe this is the inspiration to try making them myself. Cool!

Those came out so cute!! I've been wanting to make these but have no idea where to even put them so I've been holding off. Check out this link for some ideas on what to put in it. http://ourliebertfamily.blogspot.com/2010/01/made-with-love-quilled-paper-hearts.html

Thanks so much for linking!! :)

They turned out great. I've had these on my list of "to-do's". What room are you wanting to put them in. I'm hosting a Power of Paint Party starting late tonight & every Wednesdays... I'd love it if you'd link up these apothecary jars.

Stephie, Great Job! Nope, no suggestions! They are lovely as is! I like the paint color, and the jars you used. I love how you put your touch on them. You got the idea from Shanty but they've got your style! Super cute! I gotta make some of my own now.

Hey there, I'm stopping over with the Power Of Paint Party.

Those look so great. I never thought of that!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

These are great! Love the jars with lids and thankfully, I have Michaels here. I love seeing these in different colors ~ white, black and now yours in the satin nickel.

Meleah said...

These are great. I love the color.

Maryann @ Domestically-Speaking said...

Thanks for linkin' up for my 1st Power of Paint Party!

Katie said...

That's my problem never knowing what to put in them! Yours came out great, I love the crystal and metallic silver.

Dawn said...

Oh, I love these - with the lids, they are just perfect! My first thought (especially with the lids) was bath salts... something that I couldnt put in my jars because they dont have... you guessed it, LIDS! (Can you tell I'm really jealous of the lids?!)

Sherry said...

I love these! Fantastic job!!!

Becca @ Blue Cricket Design said...

fabulous idea- yours turned out lovely. Thanks for sharing.

Andy Porter said...

Very cute idea!! I think they'd be cute in a bathroom with cotton balls and Q-Tips.

Lynette said...

Those look great! I love them - so wish we had a Hobby Lobby around us - my nearest one is an hour and a half - in either direction!

I need to make a list and (maybe) make a trip soon!

Thanks for the great inspiration.

OH - Marty at A Stroll Thru Life had a cloche/apothecary party about a month ago - google apothocary jars and she is right up there or here is the link to her blog -

http://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com/

scroll through a couple of months back. She did a Linky thing - there were some really cool ideas all around!
Good Luck!

Sherry said...

These jars turned out great! I have added these to my DIY project list. Thanks for the inspiration.

Jen said...

Wow, those look great. You could put them in the bathroom with cotton balls or put seashells in them. I can think of tons of uses.

Summer said...

Beautiful! Now I want to make some!
