10 Ideas for Decorating with Apothecary Jars

Prepare yourselves for some apothecary jar cute-ness. I just love apothecary jars. sigh. They come in so many different shapes and sizes – from straight and tall to round and curvy. Plus, they are so versatile – just change out what’s inside for any different occasion or season. I have a couple different ones myself and have yet to do much with them. So I’m rounding up a few ideas on how to decorate with them. Hopefully they’ll inspire me to get moving on decorating with mine and give you some ideas too! Here they are – a mix of seasonal, everyday and organizational ideas.
