DIY Gratitude Jar

If you know anything about the law of attraction and stuff.. you’ll know how gratitude and counting your blessings can change your life… literally!
So every night before I go to bed, I will write out my gratitude of the day on a small note and put it in this jar until the day it will be filled.
I don’t know what I’ll do with all the notes once it is filled but I will decide it then!
I hope you guys like it and send me a picture if you decide to make one yourself Smile


  1. Get a large empty jar
  2. I took a paper bag and cut it out in the shape as shown in picture. I punched a hole at the arrow part and then used a black pen to write the words in calligraphy style. I chose to write positive words on them! You can write anything you want. Whatever floats your boat 🙂
  3. I assembled the paper bag tags on a string and tied it around the jar. I tied it loosely to give a shabby chic look
  4. I tore a page from one of my old books. I used the lid to trace the shape of a circle and then I cut it out. I glued the circle on the lid because I was opting for a vintage-y style
  5. I cut out two rectangular pieces of different colour and glued them together to make a label. I wrote “gratitude jar” on it with some funky designs. I also had some lace tape lying around so I stuck it at the bottom of the jay and on top of the label. You can glue some ribbon on it as well! I finished the decoration by sticking an owl piece on the corner of the label. It was actually attached to a hair bobbin but I never used it so I glued it on the label. You can stick any old piece of jewelry and jazz it up in your own way.
And that’s pretty much it! I love how it gives the shabby / vintage look. That’s actually the theme in my room so everything in my room is vintage style. It looks super cute on my window sill.
Do you keep a gratitude jar?
Send me a picture if you create one as well 🙂
