Apothecary Jars...in the bathroom (?)

So I've already made some apothecary jars for my mantle (they really need something in them), but I never thought to put them in the bathroom until I saw this: Mine for the Making Dollar Store Apothecary Jars and Found in the "Ali" : Dollar Store "Faux"-pothecary. I LOVED the idea so I recreated it myself!





Materials:
Glass vase or jar
Candlestick Holder
Super Glue (I've heard Epoxy is better, but I used what I had on hand)
That's it.

Directions:


Wash out your jars. Remove any left over wax from the candlestick holders.


Glue the jar to the candlestick holder



 Can you tell there is glue on the top? Apply the glue to the candlestick holder for a lot less hassle. 

Allow to dry and then fill.



You are done!


The hardest part of this project was picking the vases. I got mine at Savers. I love the way the turned out. What do you think?

Also, I'm getting featured today at House of Hepworths! Go check me out:

Super cute and simple! I wish I had a counter top. :( We just have a sink (it's a tiny bathroom!) maybe I could put in some shelves and do these! Can't believe you've never had strawberry bread! SO yummy!

Way to think outside the box - or jar, as the case may be!

Okay I am dying over the simpleness and cuteness of these! I was thinking about using a glass cake stand (is that what they're called??) to roll up little towels and stuff in in the bathroom and these would look so cute next to that! Thanks for the idea!

This is a great project! Easy, but so, so cute. I have plain glass jars on our counter that I got from Linens n Things on clearance. They could use a little "lift" for character!
