Apothecary Jars: Decorating and Organizing Your Space

My mother and I have been obsessing (all week) over Apothecary jars.  We’ve shared creative ideas for decorating and organizing with these clear, glass jars.

Apothecary jars are beautiful to the eyes and can be used in a variety of ways.  For example, one can organize a bathroom with these jars by filling with cotton balls or bath soaps.

A decorative use for the jars includes using as an accent object on a table; filled with lemons or flowers.  I’ve discovered on Pinterest that one can make Apothecary jars with a simple vase, candle holder, and super glue.  I love this idea because I’m a sucker for a DIY project!

These sophisticated jars can also showcase the change of seasons (or holiday) with candy, ribbon, or even decor.  The perfect place to display an Apothecary jar is on the fireplace mantle, kitchen bar, accent table, or bath tub.  If you want to add a touch of elegance, place a silver tray underneath the jar.  This can take your jar from ordinary standards to ultra unique in minutes.
