Easy to make coasters and an Apothecary!

I would like to thank Little Lizard King, Posh Pieces, Me and My Bucket, Sew Dang Cute, and Girl Inspired for coming over and guest blogging for me while I was out!!!  You ladies are great!  Thank you so much!

I'm still stopping by everyone's blog and looking at your wonderful projects from Get Your Craft On Thursday Party!  I'll feature a few during my next Get Your Craft On Thursday Party!  Please join me next week for another great party!

While I was out, I made some much needed coasters for our place at the beach!  

I found 4 small plant holders from Wal-Mart.
I went on the internet and found these cute palm tree photos.
Of course, I used my Mod Podge and ribbon!

I cut the palm trees out to fit the circles.

Used Mod Podge on the bottom and the top.


I added yellow ribbon for a bit of color!

Doesn't the Strawberry Daiquiri look yummy on my coasters?  Let me say it was yummy!

I also made this apothecary jar!  I found an apothecary jar for around $8.00.
Got sand from the beach (free), got shells from the beach (free)

And there you have a beautiful Apothecary jar!

I have got to get me an apothecary jar. My husband has a bunch of shells from some time he spent in FL when he was younger and I want to put them into a jar for him. As it stands right now they are in a shoe box in the ottoman.

Gorgeous! I love beachy stuff- but I am a true California girl so it is not surprising!

Brandi @ Frugal Farmhouse said...

love it! the picture is very cool:)

Allison Shops said...

Both are nice ideas!


Natasha said...

I can't believe you made those coasters and that you found an apothecary jar for only $8! The last one I bought was about $35!

Glad you had a good break, Lori.

Best wishes,
