Memories in a Jam Jar - DIY Project 2015

By Carrie Rose | Friday, 2 January 2015 2 comments

One thing I love doing more than anything is making memories and more importantly keeping them alive! Every year me and the family look over the year at what we have achieved, the places we have visited, the special moments that have occurred and even the nice things we have done for other people. My ultimate happiness comes from memories and I love keeping them close to me and looking back over time! I do this by keeping a memory jar!

Memory Jars are simple and VERY easy to make!

DIY : Memory Jar Project 

All you need is:
  • a large (ish) glass/see through biscuit/sweet/jam jar
  • some cute post-it notes/paper

Your grandparents, mum or friend may have a jar going spare, if not they are very easy to find! Wilkinsons are the best bet at a cheap price of just £4 otherwise there are LOTS on amazon for those key internet shoppers! Here is a plain one for £8.25!

However, as you can see I love making mine all pretty with either flowers, stickers, bows, or pictures to add on! 

You can buy them pre crafted here or for those that would like to make one themselves (which will probably be a lot cheaper too), head down to your local shop an get some bits and pieces of your choice! I particularly love the dangly wooden heart tags which you can write on yourself to decorate the jar! They can be found for cheap here on Ebay or simply make them yourself out of cardboard and some string.

This could make a great gift for partners birthdays, anniversaries, and even valentines which is coming up! Something a little extra! just simply write down every nice memory fold it up tightly and slot it in the jar and wait till the end of the year to reminisce. 

Here are a few design ideas to inspire you:

This should be a fairly cheap little project - even cheaper if you can use an old wine bottle like the picture above (Love this idea)

Do you have any ideas like this???

Lots of Love
