Inexpensive Apothecary Jars

I saw this while cruising the net and thought what a cool idea!  So after about four trips to the dollar store I finally had all the supplies!  I know there are only two items!  (In mine)  One store had the candlesticks and not the jars and the other had nothing!  So I waited a week and went back and one store had the jars and the other the candlesticks!  We only have the Dollar Tree around here and only two of them within 15 mins.  So I spent more on gas then on the project!  It was fun though!  I think they turned out really well and will look great as soon as I decide what to put in them and where in the house they are going to live.

I was worried about the glue showing and them not being level but nothing to worry about they turned out fine.  Here is a close up of the glue, you can't see it!
