Since this will be the first Halloween in our new house, I am very slowly getting decorations together. We have a couple things leftover from years of apartments, but not much. I decided I wanted a witch theme this year. I saw these great apothecary jars from Design DNA and I knew they would go perfectly with the décor. They were super easy and inexpensive.
- Candlesticks (I found mine at Goodwill for $.99 each)
- Jars (I used mason jars, pickle jars, and baby food jars)
- Hot Glue
- Black flat spray paint
- knobs (or old chess pieces)
- Jar fillers
Step 1: Prime the lids and candlesticks. Let dry.
Step 2: Spray paint the candlesticks and lids black. If you are going to use knobs (I had 3 on hand so I used them but they’re not necessary) paint those as well. Let dry.
Step 3: Now for assembly. Glue the jars to the top of the candlesticks. I would recommend a strong glue like E6000 for a stronger bond but I didn’t have any on hand so I just used hot glue and it seems to be holding up just fine.
Step 4: Glue the knobs to the top of the lids and screw on the lids.
Step 5: Fill with your favorite Halloween objects and you’re set to go. I haven’t quite finished filling mine but I’m loving it so far! I found some rubber cockroaches at Walmart and the eyeballs at Target. I put the spiders in just until I find a bunch of black ones, which for some reason have proven hard to find this year.
So what would you fill your Halloween Apothecary Jars with?
