Seasonal Apothecary Jar Displays

I have always loved the look of apothecary jars, but I never really knew what to do with them. I like the idea of using them to hold cotton balls, q-tips, etc. in the bathroom, but it just wouldn’t work for me personally. What I found works best for me, is to change out the “fillings” of the jars seasonally. This is a great way to easily change up the entire room with won’t break the bank.

I got my jars at Costco during the holiday season. I think they were around $29.99 for the set of three. I do like the ones Pottery Barn offers here as well, but they are way more expensive and I can’t see what the difference really is. I am hoping that Costco has these jars again this year. I would love another set for my son’s room. I am thinking matchbox cars and legos would be a couple of great looks in there.

I get most of my “fillers” from Target, Kohls, Michaels, Jo-Ann Fabrics, etc. We just got a Hobby Lobby near us and I know they have some great items too. I have found that Target has a lot of items similar to Pottery Barn things, for a fraction of the price.

What do you / would you put in your apothecary jars? Any ideas for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. that you want to share? I am already thinking about mine but haven’t made any final decisions yet. I would love to hear from you!

    Love the blog! For Halloween, I was thinking either candy theme with black and orange M&M's, candy corn and ?; or fake eye balls, fangs and ? (obviously having a hard time coming up with three things, haha!)

    I love the Easter ones! I also saw some filled with coffee beans in a kitchen- loved that!

    So cute! Where did you get the fake leaves in the first picture?

  9. Jennifer

    Jenny do they have packages in M&M's that are just orange and black? All I can find are the Halloween mix ones that have purple and green too?

    Erynn coffee beans is such a cute idea!

    Leslie I am so hoping they have them again this year! Let me know if you find them.

    Karen I would love to see what you come up with!

    Thanks Dani!!!!

    Hi Jennifer,
    I'm making terrariums and have been looking for inexpensive jars like these. I've found a few in thrift stores, but they're missing the lids. I'll check out Costco. Thanks

    I do not have a web site. I just wanted to let you know the jars are so pretty. I have seen similar jars on Martha Stewart. I never knew where to get them thanks. What about spider rings and such for Halloween.

    Love all the seasonal jar decor. It’s inspired me to start my own set! I’d love to see what you actually set these on. Is it a buffet or hall table?

    Can you please tell me the height and width of the apothecary jars. I love the ratio of them

      I believe I posted that I bought them at Costco in the post? They were purchased well over 10 years ago though.
