Happy New Year! Here’s a fun DIY to either give as gifts or keep for yourself: 2015 Happy Jars. The idea is that, throughout the new year, whenever something good/exciting/happy happens, you write it down and put it in the jar. Then, on December 31st 2015, you open the jar and read all the great things that happened the past year. I think I originally found this idea on tumblr, but I added a few things to make it giftable. For example, using a hair tie as a makeshift pen-holder, and hot gluing post its to the lid so it’s easy to jot a quick note. In addition, I added some printables for the labels and Happy Jar Rules:)
- Glass jars
- Ponytail holders (hair ties)
- Hot glue gun
- Mini post-it notes
To make the pen holder: snip a hair tie in half and hot glue both ends to the jar.
To make the notes: hot glue the post it notes to the lid.
Have a great New Year’s Eve and I can’t wait for another year of RDD!
