I was searching for a cute Easter/Spring centerpiece for our kitchen table last week. I wanted something fun and unique that HPK would like to look at while he's sitting at the table, eating his breakfast etc... I couldn't find anything that wasn't cheesy or too Eastery so I decided to try to make something myself with some stuff that I already had.
I wasn't quite sure how this little project would turn out when I decided on a whim to make some Mason Jar Apothecary jars that I found online while HPK was taking his nap.
I used some old bottle lids and different odds and ends glued together for the toppers. I simply glued the toppers to the top of jar lids and spray painted them with 2 coats of brown/bronze spray paint. Since I collect Kerr jars I had no problem finding a few that would work perfectly for my little project. I spray painted some old candle sticks and glued the jars to the top of the candle sticks.
I decorated them with some ribbon, basket filler and some candy eggs.
My little Easter centerpiece project ended up costing me zero dollars since I already had everything I needed at home!
I don't think my husband was very impressed. When I showed him, he gave me the big eyes. But I think they are cute and unique and that's all that matters!!! ;)
