Easy Apothecary Pedestals


Todays fast and easy project inspiration comes from Tami over at Dollar Store Decor. She created mini apothecary display jars gluing dollar store glass candle holders onto candlesticks. Here is the link to her project: http://dollarstoredecorating.blogspot.com/2012/02/candleapothecary-jars.html. I loved the simplicity of this project but I wanted to create a bigger display so I purchased a glass hurricane for my candlestick at Michael's. For under $5 with coupon, I turned a cast off candlestick into a pedestal apothecary display. It was so simple I will definitely be making another taller one for a pair. Fill them with seasonal items for a nice buffet or kitchen island display. Thanks Tami!

For This Project You Will Need:

Candle stick (recycle one you no longer love)

Glass Hurricane (I purchased mine at Michael's)

E6000 Glue or Gorilla Krazy Glue




Take your candle stick to the craft store and find a hurricane jar that fits nicely atop your candle stick.


Apply E6000 Glue along the base where the hurricane comes into contact with the candle holder.




Let dry over night. The glue will definitely take all night to set.

Fill your new display piece with seasonal items. I used moss from the dollar store and some faux eggs. Attach a ribbon if desired.
