How to make Apothecary Jars

Turn the candy dish over, and attach the candle stick.  Try not to have strings of glue like I did!  You want to try to center as best you can.  Slide it around a bit when you flip it over to make sure the candy dish doesn't look lopsided.

Let them set overnight.
And the final project looks like...
