I’ve always loved jars whether they be a simple Mason jar or fancy Victorian apothecary. I don’t have an official “apothecary” jar…yet! I do have numerous glass vases, jars and such and want to use them to decorate for the holidays this year.  There seem to be an endless amount of ways to use the classic Apothecary Jar and when filled with items for Christmas, they are all the more special. Grouping them together makes even more of a statement.

The Nester made some beautiful displays last year, as seen below.  Get more great ideas from >> The Nester




Vintage Photos are a great idea for filling your jars with! Living with Lindsay found a selection of vintage photos online, she then printed them on card stock, cut them out, and then tore the edges and creased the image until it looked appropriately worn.  She even assembled the photos into a .pdf file for you to use in your own displays. Find that document HERE.  View all of Lindsay’s ideas >> CLICK HERE

A red & white theme creates a stunning Holiday display and doesn’t have to be expensive!  Crafty Designs & Decor used candy canes, solid red and white bows plus striped ornaments. Just because you live in a beach house doesn’t mean that everything has to be “beachy” Look at the rest of their ideas here >> Christmas Apothecary Jars


Chica & Jo spray painted seashells one color and used them as a centerpiece on their dining room table.  “Since they are gold, the look doesn’t hit you in the face as “beachy”. “The shells provide a lot of texture in the jar and the gold matches the table cloth I am currently using.” View all their ideas >> Chica & Jo
