Spring captured in a homemade apothecary jar
For under $10, I made a cute apothecary jar with a nest and eggs, with an accompanying blue bird!
The tag reads "A Gift of Spring."
I had a blue parakeet, so anything with cute little blue birds is special to me (and my favorite color is shiny light blue - just like the eggs!)
Use E-6000 to glue a dollar store candlestick ($1) to the bottom of a canning jar.
Use E-6000 to glue a glass drawer pull (from Home Depot or the like) to the lid of the canning jar.
Paint wooden eggs to desired color. Let dry, and set in a nest (made from scratch or purchased in a craft store). Set next and eggs in bottom of jar.
Paint a dollar store bird to match the eggs.
