DIY Apothecary Jars

So I saw this idea on Pinterest (of course!) and decided to try it.  I just love Apothecary Jars for storage, but they can be expensive!!! Ive even watched to see if the jars at Hobby Lobby would go low enough for me to buy a bunch of, but then I found this and just had to try it. This project cost me a total of around $1.30, how cool is that lol.
Here's what you'll need:
 Some Spaghetti/sauce jars
, spray paint
and wooden knobs.
I had the jars already just needed to use the sauce and save them back, I also had the spray paint since I do alot of painting projects. All I had to do was buy the wooden knobs I fond them at Wal-mart in the craft section. Also don't forget the hot glue gun, to glue the wooden knobs to the jar lid.
Here's some jars that give you an idea of what to use. I actually ended up using the Turkey Gravy jar, a cheese dip jar, and a salsa jar.
After gluing the knob to the lid, you spray paint and fill with whatever you need to store.
I made mine for the bathroom to store cotton balls, Q-Tips and makeup pads.
Also I found some string and thought it would be cute so I just tied it on and cut.
This was a fun, cheap, and very useful project. I cant wait to make some more Apothecary Jars for the other bathroom and the kitchen :)
