A few years ago I fell in love with a vintage cracker jar, and unsure what to do with it I filled it with faux lemons and stuck in on my kitchen shelf. Which is apparently where it was meant to be, because it’s been home there ever since. 😉
It ended up being one of my favorite accessories in my home, not surprising for a lemon lover like me. 😉 Such a small thing, but everyone asks about my lemons! It’s not rocket science, but here’s how you can replicate the look with your style in mind:
First, check out your personal style board. What colors do you love? Anything jump out that you could display? My obvious choice was lemons, but you might like limes, mini-pumpkins, acorns, or feathers. My mom has an artistic eye, here’s what I spotted in her home over the weekend:
Just go for faux when it comes to things like fruit; lemons don’t last under glass for even one day.
Then grab a cracker jar. If you don’t have a vintage cracker jar on hand, I’ve seen them at Walmart and also on Amazon (affiliate link). Jazz it up by spray painting the lid a favorite color– my vintage jar has a green lid, but it would look fab in a kicky turquoise or purple.
The bright yellow lemons add a pop of color to the open shelving in our kitchen. It’s fresh. Kinda like me.
And because I can’t get enough, whenever I see a bag of real lemons on sale I buy them and place them in a footed bowl I got at the Crate & Barrel outlet. They look pretty and we use every last drop of them!
I can’t wait to see what you put in your jars. I know it’s an easy decor idea, but that’s why I’m here– encouraging you to find the EASY and SIMPLE ways to make your house your home. So… what are you going to put in your jar?!
