4th of July Apothecary Jars

When I think about the summer and the 4th of July, my mind goes to visions of the beach! Neutral colors and texture! So with that on my mind, here is my beach version of our

 4th of July Apothecary Jars…

4th of July Apothecary Jars

 I wanted to capture the feeling of summer in this festive set of 4th of July Apothecary Jars. They are filled with beach sand {craft tip: each one has a can inside the jars so I would not have to use as much sand! }. You could even fill them with your own collection of seashells collected on family vacations!

The U.S.A. letters are brown, metal tags that I found in the dollar section of Michaels. They are the perfect accent! I simply attached them with jute twine.

Each Apothecary Jar is finished with a whimsical burlap bow. I love the texture burlap brings in and it can go with any decor. I even added a little starfish to complete the beachy vibe I was going with!

Can’t you just feel the sand between your toes and see the fireworks across the ocean…

    Did you buy the jars/with lid somewhere or have it from a pantry item? Are they glad or plastic? What about the candleholders? Are they from a Hobby store and are they wood and painted?
