Bottle Shards in Window Jars – I like it!

“Here’s how I display some of my pieces, in large clear glass jars. They really look great in the windows!”

Apple-Touch-IconAI like this. What a clever, simple idea! I put cool seashells that I have varnished in old antique, clear cookie jars. Organized displays are great. Posted by Bill Bixby (Ellington, CT) over at

    Cool idea ! My Uncle did something similar , he took one of the large old pickle jars ( shaped like a barrel ) . Bought a do it yourself lamp kit , and filled the jar with colored shards. He also had a small ( Christmas tree type ) bulb in the center of the shards that would light also ( I will have to ask him how he did this part ) . Makes a COOL lamp for an end table .
