Perfectly display your holiday goodies in these apothecary jars by Kelli!!

Hi everyone! And a big thanks to Nikki for having me today. I am Kelli from The Turquoise Piano. I'm a full time wife and mommy with a part time obsession with home staging, real estate searching, DIY-ing, and blogging. I started my blog for a place to post all the projects that were inundating my family blog.
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 glue the knobs (that I got on clearance at Ikea) to the lids. I used super glue for this step.
Step #5: spray paint the lids the same color as the vases.
Step #6: Gorilla Glue the mason jars to the top of the vases. This glue works like a charm!
Hope to see you over at The Turquoise Piano where you can check out some other great tutorials like my Anthropologie inspired lamp tutorial and, obviously, the actual turquoise piano.
