When I received an email from At Home stating Apothecary Jars were 50% off, I jumped to the opportunity to stock up on them. I’ve always loved the idea of using these beautiful jars for decorating. Here’s a list of many creative ways you can decorate with these jars in each room of your home. Be creative and have fun.
Cookie Jar – An apothecary jar can be the ultimate cookie jar. Check out Khloe Kardashian’s cookie jar video. It is fabulous. Use an apothecary jar for this project.
Dishwasher Pods – Instead of keeping the pods in the plastic bag under the cabinet. Pour them into an apothecary jar and display it on your kitchen countertop.
Candy – Use an apothecary jar as a candy dish.
Fruit – Fresh fruit can be used as a beautiful centerpiece.
Sugar – An apothecary jar is the ultimate sugar dish. You can store cubes or granulated sugar.
