diy: sweet nothings jar tutorial

Here's a quick and easy D.I.Y. that's sure to be a great picker-upper as a gift for anyone. ...Even to the people in your life who seem to have everything.

It's cheap, very simple to make but I can't imagine anyone who wouldn't appreciate receiving one of my "Sweet Nothings" jars. Hope you like! :)

You can probably create your own Sweet Nothings jar just by rummaging around your drawers and kitchen cabinets. Any sort of jar will do. I just chose an air-tight one for mine because that's what I had lying around. Aside from the jar, you will also need: twine/ribbon or whatever you would like to use to decorate your jar, scissors, bond paper, pens, glue.

  1.  Create a label for your jar or print one out (I chose to just write mine down)
  2. Stick to jar using glue, I used a typical elmer's glue stick 
  3. Decorate with twine or whatever.
  4. Fill jar with love notes, poems, special traits you like about the person, etc. It's up to you really. You can even opt to add pearls, candies, confetti, glitter, etc. I just felt like being minimal with mine. 

And there you have it, a "Sweet Nothings" jar!

You can even leave in optional instructions if you want like: "take one per day after breakfast"/for PMS purposes only etc.

It only takes a few minutes to create and is also a fun and simple project that you can do with your kids. :)
