DIY: Homemade apothecary jar

The good thing about these jars is that they’re easily adaptable to any kind of decoration. You can use them in the kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, living room… awesome, right?

Before, the apothecary jars were just used by druggists to hold pharmaceuticals but nowadays you can use them to hold things like makeup, candles, flowers, candies, it depends on you and your imagination.
We’re going to show you how you can make one out of things that you probably already have at home.

Materials: Drinking cups (different sizes) and decorative rocks.



First, add some of the rocks, one layer.


Then, add a second layer with another color.



Finish it with a last layer. You can always mix the colors, add more, use just one, whatever you want.



Use it to put your makeup or pens.


If you want a taller apothecary jar just glue two cups together.


Enjoy your apothecary jar! Remember that you can adapt them to decorate any part of your house.
