Apothecary Jars for St. Patrick’s Day

Apothecary Jars for St. Patrick’s Day was published first on Uncommon Designs.

It has been a while, but our apothecary jars are back and brighter than ever!  You have seen them all dolled up for Christmas, Halloween, Valentine’s Day, Thanksgiving, and 4th of July, but now we are so excited to show you our St. Patrick’s Day set!

Apothecary jars for St. Patrick's Day

Every time I look at these jars, they just put a smile on my face!  They are just so full of vibrant color and whimsy, your day is sure to be a little brighter.  This is one holiday I don’t do a lot of decorating for, but after seeing this rainbow of beautiful colors, I am now asking myself why on earth I don’t?!

To make the jars, I gathered gumballs, rolo’s, and green ribbon.  I layered the rolo candies by stacking two on top of each other.  Then, my little one and I divided out the gumballs and stacked them by color.  It was such a great sorting activity to do with her, too and she loved being able to help me.

I did roll up some paper towels and stick them in the center to avoid using a tremendous amount of gum balls.  I would highly recommend doing this to save time and money.  To finish off the set, I strung glittered four leaf clovers to the front of the jars.  They added just the right touch of shine and bling.  After all, every holiday project deserves its own pinch of bling, right?!

    I have been trying to make these apothecary Jars for a few months now, but have been having a hard time finding some of the pieces. I live where there is no Hobby Lobby, but can order on line. What I am having a hard time finding is 3 different sizes of the candlesticks. Hobby Lobby doesn’t have a 3rd size anymore. I have scoured the internet, 2nd hand shops, ect. My local Michaels & JoAnnes have a few of the items needed for this project, but I ordered most on-line from Hobby Lobby.

    They are SO CUTE that I just have to have my own!

  27. So fun and so colorful!
