NOTE: WE'VE MOVED! Visit: Ramblings of a Suburban Mom for lots of apothecary jar ideas! I have always loved the look of apothecary jars, but I never really knew what to do with them. I like the idea of using them to hold cotton balls, q-tips, etc. in the bathroom, but it just wouldn't work for me personally. What I found works best for me, is to change out the "fillings" of the jars seasonally. This is a great way to easily change up the entire room with won't break the bank.
I got my jars at Costco during the holiday season. I think they were around $29.99 for the set of three. I do like the ones Pottery Barn offers here as well, but they are way more expensive and I can't see what the difference really is. I am hoping that Costco has these jars again this year. I would love another set for my son's room. I am thinking matchbox cars and legos would be a couple of great looks in there.
I get most of my "fillers" from Target, Kohls, Michaels, Jo-Ann Fabrics, etc. We just got a Hobby Lobby near us and I know they have some great items too. I have found that Target has a lot of items similar to Pottery Barn things, for a fraction of the price.
What do you / would you put in your apothecary jars? Any ideas for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. that you want to share? I am already thinking about mine but haven't made any final decisions yet. I would love to hear from you!
