Guys, I have recently become obsessed with apothecary jars. They are the new mason jar of home decorating. Seriously. What I love most about apothecary jars is that you can fill and refill them based on your mood and the season. By switching the contents of the apothecary jars, you can completely change the vibe of a room and enhance the space. And they don’t just look pretty, they are ideal for storing and organizing things like cotton balls, shells, and soaps…but in a way that looks cool.
You can purchase apothecary jars at home goods stores, but you can also find them at thrift shops and garage sales for practically nothing. Most apothecary jars you find will be clear; however, you can sometimes score amber, brown, or blue jars. They come in numerous shapes and sizes with different types of lids as well.
Inspired to decorate and organize your home with apothecary jars? Check out some of my favorite ways to put them to work.
