A memory jar is a little jar of your liking that you start to fill with memories. they could be good, bad, life changing memories or just a small detail that made you happy. You live it, you write it and save it! typically you start this at the beginning of the year so that when the year is over you can look back at all the wonderful things you did. But you can start or do it how ever you like. like if you start it this month then open it next year during the same month, or fill the jar with secrets, like a diary, or with dreams or future plans/goals...just some ideas. :)
|This picture is from Pinterest and it belongs to another blogger, if you wish to see hers click it! she has some different ways of keeping memories too.|
What you need:
- a jar (preferably with a lid) (the jar featured above is a mason jar, mine is one i picked up at the craft sotre)
- sticky notes (it looks prettier with color stickies!)
|jars! check out your local thrift store, grocery store or craft store|
To make it your very own:
- mod podge
- a brush
- card stock (construction paper/ thicker than printer paper)
- the supplies are endless, its how ever you want to personalize it. This also makes for a great gift, so you can personalize it to your liking or to a friend's liking !
if you don't have a decal but you are equipped with Mod Podge, like i was, then you can make your very own label. you can use a computer or use magazine cut outs or even tissue paper! I printed what i wanted on paper and then i ripped the edges so it gave it more character, then i just slathered the mod podge and let it dry. I also added a little string at the lip of the jar and made a bow.
Since i haven't really been up to much my jar is lacking memories but i'm working on it! i think i might start to add in some dreams and future goals of mine!
