Spring Apothecary Jars

A few weeks ago Courtney at A Diamond in the Stuff had a tutorial for homemade apothecary jars...

recognize the middle?

Now?


Yep, those are Mason Jars!  We LOVED the idea so we had to make an Easter version!  First I bought a couple of candlesticks from the thrift store (Lucky Glitta already had a bunch!) and then wood finials from Lowes.  I spray painted them all the same cream, then sanded and antiqued them.  And they couldn't really qualify for Easter if they didn't have eggs inside, right?  So I added some of my bookpage eggs, and made some robin eggs.  I bought a pack of mini styrofoam eggs for a buck at Target and painted them with Valspar spray paint in Mediterranean and then flecked them with a few spritzes of antiquing solution:
Original colors

 skewered them on bamboo skewers and put in a planting blocks, as if they were cake pops


Spray painted and flecked, but one did not fare so well...



Little Robin eggs for a dollar!
