Apothecary Jars

Well there is probably no one following this blog anymore, I have decided to only post when i make something and manage to get a picture of it. It's just too much for me to keep up with doing a post everyday but i refuse to delete this blog because i want a place to store all my past ideas and i have all my links to blogs i love on my side anyway i am tired of looking at my Valentines post below and just made some cute Apothecary jars and wanted to share. Now saying that i also have to add that i hate the fact that i don't have a tutorial to go with the finished picture, no excuses i just got lazy and wanted to get these suckers done. I do however have a couple of tips.....
1. Make sure to PRIME your wood or whatever your using!! I for some unknown reason didn't and i used about a can and a half of spray paint....yeah i had a major brain fart on that one.
2. Read and FOLLOW the instructions on the glue package. I used Gorilla Glue for the first time and learned that a THIN coat is all you need...learned this the hard way.
Oh and no your eyes are not blurring up on's a crappy cell phone picture that i strangely took the time to photo shop.....go figure!

I got all my wood pieces from Hobby Lobby and i used the smaller mason jars that were not smooth, i liked the logo look. I used Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze, can't go wrong with that. And i used a glaze that was tinted black to glaze after i glued everything together.
I'm very happy with the way they turned out and i know i will be making more in the near future. If you get one or a set of these from me as a gift act excited as if you have never seen them before ;)
