Winter Apothecary Jar Ideas

NOTE: WE'VE MOVED! Visit: Ramblings of a Suburban Mom for lots of apothecary jar ideas! After taking down all my Christmas decorations, things were looking very plain around here. I didn't want to leave my apothecary jars empty until Valentine's Day, so I decided to do a winter display. I used fake snow (from Target), a candle decorated with ribbon (I used a hot glue gun to attach the ribbon) and tissue paper pom-poms (a Martha Stewart craft project). As usual, things did not go exactly as planned (working with tissue paper is so hard), but I am pleased with the results. It is not so easy to find all white fillers. I wanted white glittery snow flake ornaments, but could not find any that were the size I wanted. I am going to keep my eyes open so I can be ready for next year. "Snow" covered pinecones might be a thought for next year too.


  1. I love that! Mine are currently sitting empty but I did put v-day dec's up today cause the house looked naked! Can't wait to see your valentines ideas!

  2. Looks wintery! I like the idea of snowflakes or snow covered pinecones.
