Small Frosted Apothecary jars other uses for?

kittymommyDecember 16, 2005

I purchased a case of jars that look like the ones shown on this link.

They were terrible to try and wick for candles. The middle is wider and the opening is very small. Made too much soot. Anyway, I was trying to think of some other uses for them. I thought about buying some really nice transparent decal type stickers and using them as spice/herb/tea containers. Any other suggestions? Maybe something I could do with them and use as small holiday gifts?

I love those jars kittymommy and I think I will have to get some of them. I decoupage, so I would decoupage Christmas images on them and maybe personalize them as small gifts. You could always fill them with candy also.

They are cute but a major pain if you make candles. Mine are sorta bubble shape(larger in the middle)small top. Thanks for the candy suggestion. They only hold 5oz so it will have to be very small candy.

I'd use a couple in the bathrooms for Q-Tips and cotton balls. And on the bedside table to hold those little items I always seem to need.

Not quite what I have, but maybe you could do something along this line........I bought some very old medicine bottles(junk actually) and poured white paint in them. Then painted a letter on each one........N, O, E, L.......all being different heighths. Then I hung a jingle bell, or piece of greenery, or bow on each neck of the jar........and set them all on my guest bathroom counter for Christmas! They looked really nice on a red decorated doily with an electric "candle" by them. Made a cute vignette and even provided a "nightlight"!

Just thought I would share.......Julie
