Check it Out! Last week I posted about using jars for storage. You can check that post out HERE and see how I used recycled jars to make usable desk accessories.
Today for my Make it Monday post I wanna share how you can make a really cool accessory for your bathroom or kitchen. This accessory is in the apothecary style and only uses a recycled jar and a dollar store candle stick holder.
For this project I used E6000 adhesive because it bonds glass to glass and is super strong. I also used a decorative drawer knob that I got on clearance for about 30 cents. I also used spray paint, the candle stick holder and a recycled dip jar.
Using my spray paint, I sprayed the candle stick and the lid. It took about 4 coats to the lid. I didn't want any of the original color showing and my paint was white. It took about 2 coats on the candlestick to get the look I wanted.
I used the E6000 to glue my knob to the center of the lid top. You could use a screw and nut if you prefer. Just drill a hole in the lid and thread it through.
And finally I used the E6000 again to glue the candle stick holder to the bottom of the jar.
After allowing the glue on all the pieces dry over night, I had a beautiful jar for my bathroom counter. I use it for Q-Tips.
What would you store in a DIY apothecary jar? I can think of a thousand things!
