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
Get a large empty jar
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 🙂
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
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
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 🙂
Share it if you’re inspired xx
