DIY Apothecary Candy Jar Decoration – a Tutorial

I was asked to help make a craft for our upcoming Super Saturday. (A fun day of crafts at my church) So I came up with these adorable Apothecary Candy Jars that make a perfect decorative piece for your home. I also made a few extra for my kids teachers for the holidays. (They make a quick and easy teacher gift!) They are also very inexpensive. Check out the tutorial below and let me know if you make any, I would love to see them!

Candy Jars

  • Spray Paint (Color of your choice)
  • Ribbon (I like using gross-grain)
  • Wood Circles (I found these at Hobby Lobby)
  • Wood Ball Knobs (Hobby Lobby)
  • Candle Stick ($ Store)
  • Glass Jar with Lid (I used a Ragu Jar)
  • Glue (I used E6000 the first time and then switched to Hot Glue – it dries faster!)

First Spray Paint your pieces – candlestick, knob, lid, circle.

Once all your pieces are coated and dry (they may take more than 1 coat, I also painted the bottom of the circle too). Then glue your candlestick to the circle.

Then glue the knob to the top of your lid.

Then add a cute bow with your ribbon and glue the base of your jar to the top of the circle.

    These are so cute! I am hoping we can do them at our upcoming Super Saturday. I was wondering if you had an estimate about how much they cost per jar?
