I have been having so much fun making Halloween crafts this year.
I want Halloween to last forever!! How about you? I was on Pinterest a couple of days ago and found
this from a cute blog called Pink Cake Plate I thought they were so dang cute and I knew
right away I had to make them. She bought her Owls at the Dollar store. I was so very excited and
thought her jars were so dang cute that I hurried over to the Dollar store. When I got there I was SO
SAD to find out they were all gone!! I was sooo disappointed until I found these Cute pumpkins at Hobby Lobby to replace the Owls that I so badly and I mean so
badly wanted to go on the top of my lids. They were such a good price too! Only 50 cents for
each pumpkin. I like them so much!! I was practically jumping up and down when I found these
Halloween gems. Also, while I was at Hobby lobby I grabbed the rest of my supplies I needed.
Picked up at Hobby Lobby:
-Wodden Candlestick holders. (Bag of 4 for $2.99)
-Wooden bases (Bag of 4 for $2.99)
Things I already had in my craft stash:
At the Grocery Store:
-2 Pizza jars (Making Pizza for dinner this week!)
-Pasta Sauce jar
DIY Apothecary Halloween jar was so much fun to make and really easy! I am so BAD at taking
tutorial pictures. I keep telling myself I will do better at taking pictures. But, I never do. LOL! Maybe
one day I will do better. So since I didn't take pictures I will tell you how. First thing to do is to wash
your jars after using them. I used Goo Be Gone to get the goo off of the jars from the labels. Works like
a charm. Paint your lids, wooden sticks and bases black. I painted them 2 times. Glue your pumpkins or
whatever you have to your lids. While they're drying, cover your candlesticks and bases with modge
podge and sprinkle them with black glitter.
After the glitter has dried, glue the candlesticks to the bases. There is going to be lots of waiting so you
have to be patient. :) Once they have dried glue them to the jars. The next day fill your CUTE
HALLOWEEN APOTHECARY JARS with your yummy and delicious Halloween Candy.
I LOVE the candy choices!! SO eye catching. Candy is so pretty and so yummy!!!
I love these pumpkins so much!! At one point I considered covering the pumpkins in glitter. So glad I
didn't They look so much better the way they are.
Tip: Wash your bottles in the dishwasher and then pour some white vinegar in them and let them sit over night. In the morning put them back in the dishwasher for one more wash.
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Halloween crafting to all of you.
