Store Cupcake Liners in a DIY Apothecary Jar

A few weeks ago, I saw a fantastic idea over at TidyMom where she used a tall kitchen storage jar as a pretty way to store cupcake liners. I am a cupcake liner addict, so I have way more than I can use in a year. I loved TidyMom's solution, and the fact that it put the cupcake liners out on display where they can be seen and enjoyed. A few days later, I had an a-ha moment when I realized that I already have the perfect cupcake display item - the large apothecary jar project I made awhile back using a dollar store vase and candlestick.

Project Estimate:

  • Large vase, $1
  • Large glass candlestick, $1
  • Small glass bowl, 3 for $1
  • Small cut glass drawer pulls, 2 for $6.77 (at W-M)
  • E-6000 glue, on hand

Total: $5.71

And, start storing your cupcake liners in style! I actually have mine sitting on my desk right next to my computer, and they make me feel happy every time I see them out on display.

    This is a great idea and will be my weekend project….Right now all of my cupcake liners are in a huge zip lock bag that keeps getting squished in the cabinet. Thanks :)

    Love this idea! I am definitely pinning this. I am also a cupcake liner addict-and now Michael keeps having cute ones in their dollar spot. How can I resist??

    Just curious if you have any suggestions for preventing your cupcake liners from getting “stretched out”?

    So cute, but sooo bummed. Doesn’t look as if Dollar Tree carries these jars anymore. I looked on their site and could not find them. :(

    Great idea!
