This is the 2nd Tuesday of March (already!?!) and that means it’s Trash to Treasure Tuesday! Each month my friends and I share thrifty makeovers from free or cheap items. You can see my past T2T makeovers HERE.
This month I chose to upcycle a couple of random glass jars I had:
I bought a glass candle holder from the dollar store and pulled out a couple knobs from my stash. I glued the pieces together with E6000 (affiliate link) – the strongest and best super glue ever.
If you use E6000, just make sure to let it sit for at least 24 hours before moving your project around. Do you like my DIY apothecary jar? 🙂
For the shorter jar, I painted the lid and a plain wooden knob in Modern Masters silver metallic paint (affiliate link) and glued them together.
They look adorable filled with treats, but they’d also look great with seasonal decor, craft supplies, Q-tips or cotton balls in the bathroom – the list is endless!
This project cost me almost nothing! If you don’t have any empty jars at home, you can buy them for a couple bucks at Hobby Lobby (save more $ if you buy them when they’re 50% off). I’m planning to make some DIY apothecary jars with Ball mason jars too.
What do you think of my upcycled glass jars?
Now visit my friends’ T2T projects below – click each link to see the After of the pieces in the photos! (Bless’er House couldn’t join us this time but she’ll be back next month.)

I really love this! I save every glass jar I get ( spaghetti sauce, salsa, honey) so I have a lot. I didn’t know what I would do with them yet but now I have this adorable idea! Great for the bathroom! Thank you!!!!
Yeay, I’m glad you like the idea – they would look awesome in a bathroom!

These are such a fun idea, Jen! I made some during the holidays a couple of years ago and they were so much fun to make. I planned on making more for my daughter’s wedding this summer for the candy bar. Your post reminded me that I better get on that soon.

Haha, thanks Marie! A candy bar sounds like fun – you better get busy 😉
