Apothecary Jars

I love my apothecary jars. Because I have decorating ADD-I change the fillers out very often. (So far I have changed them 3 times this year) There are so many things to put in them.



Faux gords and candy corn for fall.



Vintage Christmas ornaments and grapevine balls.



All things heart for valentines day...the possiblities are endless.



Since Vday is over and it's a little bit until the next holiday...I needed an in-between filler. While Christmas shopping this year, I saw some super cute lettered ceramic balls. I loved them. Unfortunately I didn't love the $30 price for 20 of them. I saw Joy make these cute ones and set out to make them myself.



Joy spray painted wooden balls and I was going to do that, but I'm lazy. So I took plain white ping pong balls (found in the Target $1 spot) and stuck on some letter stickers.



I think they turned out great! And I saved $26. Now if I could just keep my kids from getting in the jars and throwing them at each other.

These linky parties are so fun!
