Ideas Needed!

OK, I need some ideas from you creative minds out there! I have these big (these things are BIG) Apothecary jars that I got for Christmas. Yes, I display them like all together because I really have nowhere else to put them. I've had pinecones in there, and easter eggs and then these sparkly garlands. But I was looking for something else since Memorial Day & Fourth of July are over.

I looked around the house and thought of these. These are neck tags. We found them hanging from a palm tree in the backyard by the "barn" when we moved in. The previous owners had goats. I washed them up but had to pitch a few that were in really bad shape. I think it would look better if I had a little bit more, but I can't find any online that aren't brand new. Any suggestions?

And then I remembered I had a bunch of vintage wooden clothespins that I was using to hold ribbon. That storage system wasn't working for me, so I took all the ribbon off and used them here.

What I need though, is your ideas on what to use in the middle jar, the biggest one. I can't think of anything else I have around the house that I could put in there. So come on ladies, help me out! :)

I filled mine with the decorative potpourri (spelling probably wrong) that you find at Marshalls. I has big interesting things in it like seed shells and flowers. It's hard witht he big ones I think...sea shells would be nice too for summer.
Happy treasure hunting!

I have a jar like this and I fill it with vintage thread. I find the thread breaks because of the age but they are so beautiful to look at.

I was going to suggest old spools of thread but I see that was already suggested. What about skeins of floss or how about that ribbon that you took off the clothespins.

I was going to say the sea shells too!

LOL Thread was my idea too. Small ball of yarn? Shells? Sea glass? Dried lavendar? Old millinery flowers?

please sir said...

WOW - I LOVE these - and I love what you put in them! There are so many neat things to put in them - yarn? knitting needles? marbles? buttons? Can't wait to see what you decide!
