How to Make Dollar Store Apothecary Jars

7 Materials
1 Hour

I put together these dollar store apothecary jars. They are super easy, so check out how I made them, you'll be able to make them as well!

I picked up a BBQ rack from the dollar store, along with some magnetic canisters.

Start off by rolling the screen into a tube. You'll want it to fit into the canister lid.

You'll then want to cut the tube in half using wire cutters, so you'll have two!

Next, pinch down the tops to level out the wire.

Next add the lid to the top of the tube.

Next, spray the two candlesticks with antique pewter spray paint. Then let them dry.

Peel the label off of the magnetic tin.

Put some glue on the top of the candle stick.

And then glue the tube onto the top of the candle stick.

I then glued some pretty glass knobs to the top of the lids.

Here they are all finished!

You can add battery operated candles and some ribbon for some nice detail.

I love the way they came out!

For under $10, I am super happy with the result.
