I saw some awesome jars on Martha Stewart a while ago and wanted to recreate them for Easter this year. It’s a simple project but I love the impact it has.

Easter Apothecary Jars .1

I started with some random jars and a couple old candle stands. I used a spaghetti sauce, pickle, and jelly jar to make mine.

Then I went through my spray paint stash in search of some pastel colors and a silver color for the bases. I sprayed them with a few light coats of spray paint then punched a hole in the largest lid.

I used an extra kitchen knob and attached it to the lid. I love the detail it adds to the jar. Any knob would work, this is just the one I had on hand.

I think they look pretty awesome without anything in them.

But they’re going to look even better with lots of pretty Easter candy.

Easter Apothecary Jars 9.1

I added a white chocolate bunny, some edible grass, and a few Reese’s eggs to this one.

Then I added pastel M&M’s and mini Cadbury eggs to the other jars. Hmm, I wonder how long those will last.

I love the bases painted silver. What a huge difference a little spray paint makes.

Another practically free ( except for the candy) Spring/Easter project. I love these simple jars! I’m pretty sure I’ll be making more for other holidays.

So cute! I love this idea for any holiday! The candy display would never last in my house with too many little candy thieves I’ve already had my Easter Candy stashed stolen! lol Visiting for 320 Sycamore.
