Now, I am not going to ditch these freebies, but I might try and work with them.
In the meantime, I have been seeing apothecary jars all over the web. Fell in love, pinned some to pinterest and now am on a mission.
Went to the dollar store, which is called Dollarama, but nothing is less than $1.25 (don't get me started) and bought a few things.
However, I couldn't find the little wooden thingys (that is the technical term) to put on the top. I went to the only craft store in Orillia, but they are more of a kid's craft. So, I ended up buying these
They are wooden doll heads and wheels. I glued a couple to the top of the lids. Then I spray painted the lids and bottoms black, added some jute to the lids, and
Voila, I have my new canisters. Not very original, I know, but I love them. Now to make about 5 more. I think I might make a few for the bathrooms as well. I think I am on a roll now.
PS - went to Goodwill yesterday. Oh my, the treasures that I found. Wait and see.
