DIY Apothecary Bell Jars

by on Oct 16, 2012

Ah, Halloween.  The time to show off all sorts of creepy things in various apothecary jars.  Which, if done with actual glass jars, can become quite costly- unless, of course, you discover a clever and inexpensive way to fake it.  Can you guess what these bell jars were in their former life?    If you guessed soda bottles, you are right!  With the bottoms and top cap piece missing, they suddenly become the perfect solution to creating a specimen collection without having to dig into anyone’s college fund.

Marilyn of Seeing Things found some great floating bubble balls to add to the top of her bottles, which really makes them look more authentic than, obviously, a bottle cap.  For the full tutorial and list of materials, check out Seeing Things.
