Apothecary Jar Fillers, Fall & Halloween Ideas

I love apothecary jars!  I have several in my home; in my kitchen and in my bathroom.  It's so much fun to decorate them for the seasons and holidays!  

With Fall already here and Halloween fast approaching, here are some fantastic apothecary jar filler ideas to decorate your home with seasonal fun:

These apothecary jars sit on the island in my kitchen.  I filled them with a small box of harvest vase filler that I had purchased at HomeSense; it's a mixture of mini pumpkins, mini squash,  leaves and fall colored berries.  I added several brown-glittered mini pumpkins that I had on hand to each apothecary jar too!  So pretty!

Here are some other fall and Halloween filler ideas:

Nuts, Seeds and Harvest Colored Ribbons:


Leaves, acorns and grapevine:


Acorns , pinecones and pumpkin colored yarn:
Skulls, spanish moss and sand:

Spiders and spanish moss - spooky!


Candy Corn and B-O-O letters:

Snakes and spiders - oh my!


Do you have apothecary jars in your home?  What do you fill them with for fall and Halloween?

  2. Great ideas!

    If you're using acorns as vase filler, I recommend drying them in the oven first, and spraying with a clear adhesive. I wrote about this on my blog last month: http://smallhomebigstart.blogspot.com/2012/09/how-to-dry-acorns-for-fall-crafts.html

  11. I didn't see this before I decided to just do apothecary jars on my mantel and change out the contents each month. (a full-time job 10 months/year means keeping it simple!) These are great!
