The problem is that they are SOOOO expensive! I found a couple for sale at Crate & Barrel like this one:
It's price is $62.95
or this one, which is a little less expensive at $39.95:
I sure don't have an extra $100.00 laying around for 2 glass jars, even though they look really cool.
So I found a solution on the internet to make my own!
Tim and I spent most of last weekend going to garage sales and thrift stores. We found plenty of very cool things, and we also picked up some glassware so I could try to make my own apothecary jars.
We bought a nice looking glass candlestick:
And a nice looking glass jar with a lid:
We paid under $2.00 for both the candlestick and the jar.
And when we got home I glued them together to make these:
It worked! And they look just as good as those expensive jars in the stores, but nowhere near the price!
I made the two taller apothecary jars, but the cut-crystal pumpkin was one of my garage sale finds (for only $1.00). I filled them all with Halloween candy since it's beginning to feel like fall around here already anyway.
Hint: Don't use superglue, try one of the glues specially made for glass. You can find glass glue at any hobby store.
Next weekend Tim and I will be on the hunt for more jars and candlesticks, I think these would make great gifts.
