Mason jars are great for everything! I know this is the time of year that we all begin to think about what we are thankful for and what we are blessed for. I am no different. So what I wanted to do was make a jar so that during the coming year any time something happens that is good, I or my family can write it down. On New Year's eve next year we can sit down and go through all the good memories and remember what we had to be blessed for over the entire year. So if you would like to make one as well this is how:


1 mason jar



Spray Paint (or other decorations for the mason jar)


  1. Using the cardboard, cut out a circle that will fit into the ring of the mason jar.

2. Decide how you want to decorate the jar. I cut out a heart shape to tape to the jar before painting. You could use tape to make different designs or other shapes or symbols. Whatever you want to do with the jar is perfect.


3. Paint the jar. This is the fun part!

With the spray paint it only took about 15 min to dry which makes this a quick easy project to put together.


Now I have my jar to add precious memories to for the year! If you decide to do this, I would love to see how yours turned out. This is in response to Blogging from A to Z April Challenge.

Have a great day!
