Monogramed Apothecary Jar

        Homemade Apothcary Jar with vinyl monogram using
   the Cricut cartridge.

Isnt this soooo pretty? Apothecary jars are all the rage,I made this jar with pieces and
parts from my local Hobby Lobby.
I used Satin black spray paint and sprayed everything that wasnt
already black, then gave it a coat of spray satin varnish.
I used the Cricut cartridge "Tie the Knot", and
I just made another one using my SCAL and a font I found on
the internet.

Here are some pictures of the steps to make one of these..

I added a wooden disk under the jar to make it look
more chunky. There are many on pinterest and the internet
that do not have this step. I think it gives it more
substance to add this piece.

                                       The lid of the jar comes with a siver lid-I just painted it also
                                                and added another wooden disk and then the finial.

Ta Daaa!
