If you’ve been decorating your space for long, you probably know the value of those decor pieces that can be changed and redecorated to fit the occasion or the season. Wreaths display golden leaves and then red berries and then pastel flowers. Picture frames rotate through quotes about sun and snow and Christmas and spring. Vases proudly hold branches one day and flowers the next.
The basic pieces stay the same which makes decorating affordable and easy for any wallet. Which is why you want to go invest in some apothecary jars if you haven’t already. There are so many ways you can fill them and so many places you can display them, they’re almost as necessary as throw pillows. Take a look at these 12 ways to decorate your apothecary jars for spring, just in case you needed a little more convincing.
