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…


Fall Apothecary Jars

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.

Apothecary Jar Filler Tutorial

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.

Here they are all filled up with coffee beans, ready to be made into something beautiful!!

  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…

Give Thanks Always Tags

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

“Give Thanks Always”

Fall Apothecary Jars
I love having small, inspirational reminders throughout my home. Some days, it is just what my heart needs!

    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.

    on finding the materials to craft these? Thanks, Pat
