Fall Apothecary Jars

Fall Apothecary Jars

“give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus”  1 Thessalonians 5:18

I don’t know about you, but this is not always easy for me, so during this fall season I felt I needed a constant reminder of the need to give thanks always

This fall seasonal version of my apothecary jars really sets the mood for my home! Here is how you can set the mood in your own home…

If you missed yesterday’s post on our “BOO” and “JOY” apothecary jars, check it out to see how these apothecary jars were made!

For the fall, I painted mine a simple antique white. I filled them with wonderful smelling dark brown coffee beans. I also painted wooden tags {I found them at Michaels} with black chalkboard paint.

Yes…those are toilet paper rolls filled with paper towels!! Coffee has skyrocketed in price and I needed a filler! You can use just about anything you have around your home…soup cans, jars, etc.

  I added adorable burlap bows and glittered acorn bells. I also tied the chalkboard tags onto the finials with a little jute twine.

I just love burlap…

Finally, I used simple school chalk to write my reminder…

“Give Thanks Always”

    LOVE THIS!! Bought 3 apothecary jars… this may be a long shot, but would you sell a set of “Give” “Thanks” “Always” tags?? I would definitely be interested – please let me know!! :)

    Hi! I love the apothecary jars you have created. I’m in the process of making the Boo jars and wondered if you could specify what paints/finishes/glaze you used on each piece. Did you use the black acrylic paint first (on metal lid and wood pieces) then semi-gloss poly (on metal lid as well?). Also, did you use the Ralph Lauren faux technique glaze? I’m confused about what paint to use and in what order.

    Not finding the jars, letters, nor candlesticks in our Hobby Lobby here. Anyone have any recommendations
    on finding the materials to craft these? Thanks, Pat


  1. […]  The pictures just don’t do them justice. We took the same three apothecary jars from before and added some red microcheck gingham ribbon, a little tulle, JOY letters, and some good old fashioned peppermint candy to create another adorable trio. I hope that you are enjoying the preparations for the holidays and are doing a better job at staying sane than I have been. Things are good and crazy around here and I feel so behind! I keep picturing the manger scene where “all is calm and bright” and I try to take a deep breath and remember what a fantastic and miraculous gift we have already received. Thank you Jesus for always helping me to find a little peace when I need it the most… you never let me down! {UPDATE!} check out our “Give Thanks” Apothecary Jars! […]
