Decorating with Apothecary Jars

 I love changing the contents of my apothecary jars from season to season.  And, it make me really happy when I can use items found in our very own yard.

With just a few tree trimmings, some pine cones (that we spray painted gold) and some ornaments, we turned this jar into a festive masterpiece.

It's like Christmas in a jar!

Now, he sits happily merrily on a shelf in our living room.

Let's take a closer look . . .

And of course some extra sparkly things to add more of a festive touch.

How do you use any natural elements in your Christmas decor?


  1. I love the look of apothocary jars! I like to put beachy things inside like sand, shells, driftwood, coral.

  2. very nice! For Valentines you could fill it up with candy hearts, YUM!
