Spring Apothecary Jar

I first saw this idea here, but have since seen multiple versions of this same project. So, here's my version:

I bought this silver candlestick and glass jar w/lid

I spray painted the candlestick in ivory silk. I was very happy with this color choice. I deliberated for way too long in the store over ivory silk or antique white, but I am happy with the results.

Then I attached the glass jar to the candlestick with gorilla glue, set a heavy book on top and let dry.

I added a little nest and bird eggs I bought at the craft store. Hung a little chalkboard message - I hated the gold thread that was attached to the chalkboard, so I just taped it to the back and used this blue ribbon instead.

There it is, my fun little Spring/Easter decor. I plan to make one for Mother's Day too. Not sure yet what I'll put in it, but I'll be sure to share when I figure it out :)

Linking this project up with these great parties:
