“BOO!!” Apothecary Jars

When we saw the fall apothecary jars over at Shanty 2 Chic , we were inspired to create our own! Our Boo Apothecary Jars turned out just too cute!
We love the traditional colors and prints of halloween, so the black and white gingham ribbons were simply the right touch! The pop of color from the candy corns ( a favorite of one of us!!) just really sets off our “BOO” letters. There are so many possibilities with these….filled with fall items,Thanksgiving dinner table, Christmas with peppermints, even New Year’s!! Hmmm…you might just see another post or two with these in it throughout the holidays…and the next year!!

{UPDATE!} You can also check out our “JOY” Apothecary Jars and “Give Thanks” Apothecary Jars for other seasonal options!

I am happy to have you stop by our little slice of the blog world and join us in Creating the Extraordinary! Enjoy!

  50. Just curious to know why you refer to them as “apothecary”? I thought apothecary was the old fashioned name for a pharmacist but I see a lot of glass objects everywhere named apothecary. Thnaks for any feedback

  51. Found you on pinterest– love the versatility of these jars!

    Affordable blog proofreading for when your blog has attracted too many followers to pretend it’s okay because no one’s going to see it.

  52. I made this design using glass candle holders glued to jars with glass glue and to the lids i glued black crows, a fall ribbon and the letters say fall with the 2 “l”s on 1 jar. I love this so much i plan on doing a Christmas design. Thanks for the great idea!!!

  53. Soooo cute!! Where did you get the lids for these at?
