I am a firm believer in the fact that sentimental gifts are more meaningful than store bought gifts and they can really brighten a persons day! If you are looking for a special but frugal craft idea this holiday season try this! Make a jar of gratitude, a jar of love or a jar of memories! This is so simple and so deep!
All you need is a jar of your choice. Think about the gift recipient and decide what theme you want to use to decorate the jar. Once the jar is decorated you can fill it with strips of paper that have meaningful things written on them. For a gratitude jar you would write all the things you can remember that you are thankful for. Things that happened long ago or that were forgotten are the most memorable and touching. This is a wonderfully personalized gift just like a message in a bottle gift, that will be cherished by the recipient for many years to come!
