Project Pinterest

I haven't done a link up in a loooooong while but after all the emails I received on my DIY apothecary jars I decided this was a must.  After all, I do have pinterest and my sweet friend, Carrie to thank for the fabulous idea!  
I am linking up today with AP over at ILOVEYOUMORETHANCARROTS for Project Pinterest! 
AP is one of those super moms! If you thought I was busy you should probably go check her out.  She is an amazing Momma to two adorable boys.

For the DIY apothecary jars I made I had received a FB message from a sweet friend with the link below that she found from Pinterest!
From that Pinterest link I was able to read and click links to find all the necessary items for the DIY apothecary jars!
In my area in Minnesota the only craft stores we have are Michael's and Joann's so I had to just make due with what I could find.
Hobby Lobby, if your company ever decides to come to the suburbs in MN, I will be your #1 FAN and customer....just sayin'.

I found the unpainted wooden candlestick holders, blocks of wood and the the knobby things for the top....

I spray painted everything black that I could and did touch-ups by paint/paint brush.
I then went to town using the hot glue gun.
You can never have too much hot glue on anything.

I found the jars at Michael's, making multiple trips a day because you can only use one coupon per visit. I was like a crazy lady, the employees there might even know me by name. I think I know theirs.
I also found the black painted letters and the gems at Michael's.

Everyone knows everything looks a little better with some glitz and glam....

I made around 10 of the "homemade DIY" holders. I used them for candle holders as well.
The front entry table is not the only place I used them.  I'm a Halloween hoarder, I have more fun to show y'all soon!!

I just LOVE how the jars turned out and I will be using them for all seasons/holidays! I think I'll make some more as well....probably in white.  They are so fun and universal.

If you have heard of Moose and Zee from NickJr you've probably seen this little one minute song ;)
