.:Feature Friday - Made By Stephie:.

I'm so excited to introduce Stephie to you all today! She always has the most incredible ideas. I just know you are going to love her!

Hi Sweet Stuff readers!!

I'm Stephie from Made By Stephie!

I am crazy excited to be here today!! I've been a huge fan Sumo's since I first started blogging - don't you just love her take on the Burlap Wreath ( I absolutely love it!!).

I am going to share a tutorial with you today but first here is a little about me. I am a photographer (you can check out my stuff @ Hicks Photography), in nursing school married for almost a year to a SCAD grad artist, who works at a marketing firm. I love to craft, redo furniture, upcycle junk finds, and bake yummy things!

Now that you know me, here's the fun stuff...

I am currently obsessed with Apothecary Jars - and when I say obsessed I mean that I have like a million around my house. I really wanted some unique and tall ones for my soon to be new mantel. So to fuel my addiction I made these!

Here are the parts you need:
2 unfinished wood finials
2 unfinished wood circles
2 unfinished wood candle sticks
(I got each for 50% off at the Hobby Lobby)

and 2 glass canisters - I paid 2 bucks a piece for them at Home Goods.

I spray painted all of the parts - including the canister lids with a satin nickel finish paint.

This was my first time using Gorilla Glue Epoxy and I am not ashamed to say that I am in love with it! Just follow the directions on the package and glue the parts together. I let each glued section dry for about an hour before adding another section.

Here they are finished!

Thank you Sumo!! Hope everyone has a great weekend!!
