Mason Jar Apothecary Jars with Hometalk and Michaels

Pin It
Hey all! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I spent the first night away from the babe this weekend. It was super hard leaving her and in the car my gut was tied into knots and flipping around in circles, but as the day and night progressed it went a lot better than I had thought :) I was sure happy to see her face when I got home though!

Okay, on with business :) I'll be hosting a Pinterest Party with Hometalk and Michael's this Sunday! If you are around about where I'm located, I would love to meet your face :) More details along with some awesome giveaways at the bottom of this post!

This will be one of the projects I'll have on display; and if you like it, I'll help you make it! And if you don't like it...well, we have other problems :) Just kidding. You don't have to pick this project though, there are tons and tons of other projects to choose from and to give your own twist to.

The supplies for this are super simple:
Mason Jars (use the Kerr mason jars, not the Ball mason jars)
Chalkboard stickers
Glue Gun/Glue
Mason Jar Apothecary Jars

First step: Take your glue gun and shoot the glue around the top rim of the candlestick.

Hurry up and place your mason jar on top of the candlestick, making sure it is centered.

Step two: Take the chalkboard stickers and place them on the mason jar. The reason why I say use Kerr and not Ball is because Ball mason jars usually do not have an empty side, it has designs everywhere. As for the Kerr mason jars, the design is only on one side, so you can place your chalkboard stickers on the opposite side.

Now you are pretty much done! Easy, right? I don't think I have ever had a two step project lol.

I'm going to use these in the bathroom for q-tips and what not so I just took off the middle part of the lid and just screwed on the rim of the lid for a more finished look. This way, it'll be easy to get stuff out of and not have to take a lid off every morning :) I'm lazy...yes. lol

Or, you can turn these into fun little things for Valentines Day! The best part about the chalkboard stickers, is that you can change it up whenever. Now if only I can get my handwriting to look better :)

  1. Alicia, I love your spin on the apothecary jars! Super cute and versatile!

  2. So adorable! Where did you get the chalkboard stickers?

    1. Those were from Michaels too. They have a ton of different designs!

  3. I love the new twist to the mason jar! Enjoyed getting to know you + your blog from the Pinterest Party!

  4. Maybe instead of buying jars... use old spaghetti jars. Soak the label off in hot water, wash away any glue residue, then wash and paint the lids. Might be a bit more work, however, you are recycling as well as creating a lovely place to put your small items.

  5. My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find almost all of your post's to be exactly I'm looking for.
    can you offer guest writers to write content available for you?
    I wouldn't mind composing a post or elaborating
    on a lot of the subjects you write in relation to here.

    Again, awesome website!

  6. Love this project and your blog! Can you please tell me where you found the silver candlesticks? Thanks!

  7. The hot glue didn't work at all.


happy DIYing! Alicia
