Today I want to share how to make your very own apothecary jars for under $10. 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 gluing the knobs (that I got on clearance at Ikea) to the jars. I used super glue for this step.
Step #5: spray paint the lids the same color as the vases.
