Apothecary Jars

I wanted a slew of apothecary jars for the holidays and I had already spent about $60.00 on a few at Marshall's and Pier 1 Imports. As I was strolling through the thrift shop (on 1/2 price day) I had an A-HA moment. I spent under $3.00 on a 6 items and created my own.
I bought 3 candlesticks (they don't match, but that's OK) and 3 cheap jars with lids. I also spent $4.00 on epoxy - which is a MUST for gluing glass to glass. I placed the epoxy on the top of the candlesticks, removed the jar lids, and placed the jar on the center of the candlestick (looking down through the jar to center it on the base). And within a few minutes (epoxy dries quickly), I had these:
