Use a pretty glass apothecary jar to stow mementos from your summer vacation.
In a footed apothecary jar, like this one, a simple arrangement looks best.
Materials you have:
- A dried flower
- Store-bought souvenirs
- Children's flip-flops
- Postcard or photograph
- Pencil or chopstick
Materials you need:
- Apothecary jar ($30 at Pier1 Imports)
- Add a layer of sand on the bottom of container. Place items, starting with largest, ending with smallest. Use pencil or chopstick to arrange them more precisely.
- Carefully place lid on container. Display your item where it is unlikely to get jostled.
Cover all your bases. Want a memory jar that's not summer-themed? Instead of using sand, start with glass marbles (check wholesalefloral.com).
