My freebie Apothecary Jar

What can a clean jam jar and a fifty-cent candle stick holder from Good Will create?  This…
When I saw this project on Hi There Cupcake, I thought it was soooo cute.  Today when the kiddos slept longer than my house cleaning took, I took a few moments for myself to create this fun Easter decoration.
I didn’t have a pickle jar, but did have a clean jam jar.  So, I put the jar together with the candlestick holder with hot glue {not the recommended way to glue glass to glass, but works for me for now}.
FYI ~ You can see in this picture that the candle stick holder is leaning.  I think I got more hot glue under one side than the other.  It looks straight in the top picture because I used the straighten tool in my photo program.  Cheating, I know, but it made for a better photo, right?
Add some ribbon {the pink was from one of Ms. Diva’s baby shower gifts}, fill with Easter Kisses, and you have a fun piece décor!
I left the jar top purple {purple for grape jam} since it is Easter and you can’t see the top with the white writing when it is up on a shelf.  I will definitely be doing some more of these!
