DIY: Cherishings Jar

12:00 PM

Hello there darlings. :) Today I am going to do something I don't normally do - a DIY. I'm not a hands on crafty person, but I really felt like I should do this. You'll definitely receive a positive boost if you do this craft. So let's get started! :)

Today we will be making a cherishings jar. I made mine way back in August and it's really helped me realize how amazing life can truly be - especially if you look at the little things.

You will need:

+ A jar/container to hold your cherishings (I used an old plastic orange juice bottle).
+ A pen/pencil/marker/whatever you want to use to write your cherishings.
+ Scissors
+ Paper

(and if you'd like to decorate your jar get some duct tape or ribbon)

Step 1. If you'd like, decorate your cherishings jar. Make it look really happy and creatively awesome, so that it fits your personal needs.

Step 2. Write down a few things you cherish. Nothing is too big or too small. A list of ten evenly spaced items should work, to start off your jar. :)

Step 3. Cut, fold, and place your cherishings in your jar. :)

Step 4. Marvel at your work. ;)

Step 5. Try to put more cherishings in your jar everyday.

Now whenever you feel down, just dump out your cherishings and read through them for a little reminder of the good things in life.

I hope you enjoyed this little craft. Let me know in the comments if you did this, and/or what you cherish. :)

What do you cherish?

Thanks for reading!

    I did this last year, and going through it on New Years Eve was amazing. I also went to it every time I was upset/feeling down and it made me smile every time.
    I'll be doing a cherishings jar again this year! It's a great idea :)

    I love this idea, and I also love to create memory jars for the year and then go back and read them on the 31st. It's fun to see how you've grown and stuff.
    I've never seen this idea, but I might do it this year :)
