Call it a compilation of all the crazy projects I've come up with over the years. Call it a how-to for things around the house. Call it whatever you like :) It's what I do everyday. My blog is really just a way for me to share what I've learned over the years about home improvement, interior design, organization, diy, crafting and home repair. And most importantly it comes from always working on a budget and forever wanting to fend for myself when it comes to anything. I hope you enjoy (and learn a few things along the way :)

Dollar store apothecary jar

OK, here's another pinterest inspiration.  Saw a pin from someone that showed a girl at a dollar store making a $2 apothocary jar out of a glass jar with a lid and a glass candle stick.  So simple.  All you do it hot glue the candle stick to the bottom of the glass jar.  Here's the after shot.

And here it is before I put the foot on it.



I actually had several old glass jars with lids that were just too little and plain to put out anymore, so I stored them away with bath products in them.  You can probably find them at the dollar store or thrift stores, too.  Here it is, ready to display, filled with shells form a previous vacation.



Can't wait to display it.  It's amazing what adding the "foot" does for this plain boring glass container.

Thanks for yet another great idea my Pinterest friends.  I'll post the others as I complete them (only bought one to see if I liked it first).  Might be cleaning out the glass candlesticks at Dollar Tree today.
