Glass Goodie Jars....


I love displaying things in Glass jars around my house, and absolutely ♥ed how these ones turned out! 

First, purchase your jars. You can use all shapes and sizes. I found all of mine at the DI, (Local thrift store) from .50 to $1.00. 
I like to find uniquely shaped jars with chunky knobs.




Then you need small glass items to attach to the bottom of the jar. I found candlestick holders & small glass cups (also .50- $1.00 a piece).



Next, clean them up and purchase glass adhesive to attach the two together. I use this small window adhesive & primer found in the auto section at Walmart for Under $4.00 (they come together)! I have tried other adhesives, but I LURVE this one! First apply the primer all over the area you are going to glue,top and bottom. Then,  DIRECTLY after the primer, add the Glue and hold items together for 1 minute.( I usually hold it a little longer, just to be sure!)




Aren't they Lovely?
Can't you just imagine these at a childrens birthday party, filled with all sorts of yummy sweets? I can't wait to make more!






I filled them with Valentine Candy for February, and rewarded my kids with a little treat when they made a good choice. They loved it! This is such an easy project to add holiday decor into any home.




Now all I need to do is purchase some vinyl for my cricut and make cute little labels for each one! Aren't the Knobs divine?




I Hope that everyone had a beautiful Valentines day and that the rest of your month is filled with love!

  6. These came out so great! Kind of reminds me of an old fashioned candy store! I wish I could have more glass items in my house but with 2 sets of nosey little hands, I have to pass the glass sometimes. Hey, that rhymes! LOL!

  8. I LOVE apothecary jars and have quite the collection.(to my hubby's dismay) I am going to have to try that glue though cause all the ones I have made in the past the glue is yellow tinted on! So I am going to definitely try it this way!

    LOVE!!

  15. I was just at the DI near my home yesturday. I left saying I would never go back. Waste of my time. I wish I would have seen this first. I am sure there were some glass jars. I guess you just have to be creative and know what to look for. Maybe, just maybe I'll go again.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
    I will be back to visit yours for sure.

  22. Fab idea Hanna!! I love these, they would just never survive my house. Maybe I'll make some for gifts!!

  23. I saw jars like this (but MUCH more expensive) in Better Homes & Gardens filled with bath supplies like cotton balls, bath salts, etc. It would also be good to show little collections of sea shells, pinecones, etc. Thanks for the idea. I'm new to your blog and definately will be checking back.

  29. I am going out RIGHT NOW and get me some of the adhesive from Walmart - I bet it's used for reattaching the rear view mirror when your kids pull it off! Thanks :0)
