DIY Apothecary Bottles
I love decorating with vintage glass, don't you? Just the other day, I was browsing the aisles of my favorite home store, eyeing some gorgeously girly apothecary bottles. I loved the idea of gifting them to my favorite girlfriends as a little treat on Valentine's Day, but I did not love their price tag. Yikes! Thankfully, my shopping trip that day also took me through the aisles of a home and hardware store, where I spotted some sparkly glass drawer pulls. They were identical to the adornment on the bottle stoppers of those apothecary bottles. I knew I could pull off apothecary bottles as a DIY project.

I spotted these over at One Charming Party. They're perfect for Valentine's Day, and the perfect V-day gift for your daughters or girlfriends. They're creative, cheap and impossible to mess up. So let's get started.
