Apothecary jars are an inexpensive way to add a fun decorative element to your home. While they aren’t at all new in the home decor marketplace, lately I’ve been seeing more and more of them in unique shapes and sizes. They are incredibly versatile – you can use them in almost any room of your home and can change around what they hold to continually create new looks.
One of my favorite uses of apothecary jars is in the bathroom where they can hold soaps, sponges, or bath salts by the tub:
and cotton balls, Q-tips, and other little pretties by the sink:
(sooo much better than those cheap acrylic holders!).
They can also be used as colorful decorative accents, storage, centerpieces, you name it…
You can even change up the contents of your jars for the holidays like my Easter apothecary jars:
So run out and grab a few apothecary jars before the holidays – fill them with pinecones, bows, ornaments, candy canes, or anything else that reminds you of the season.
