DIY; 2014 Memory Jar

I'm so glad it's 2014 as I have a feeling this year will be a great year. To kick off the blogging year, today I'm going to be showing you how to make your very own 2014 Memory Jar. This is a very quick, 2 step task that is quick and easy to do. This post was meant to go up on New Years Eve but I forgot to finish typing it, whoops.

You will need;
An empty jar,
A newspaper/magazine
PVA Glue

1) Take your magazine, or newspaper, and go through it finding the letters that make up the words that you want on your jar. It can be '2014 Memory Jar' (as I've done), '2014 memories' or just '2014', it's entirely up to you.

2) Stick the letters onto your jar, however you'd like using PVA glue. You can use a pritt stick but I prefer using PVA glue as it's stronger and sticks things on better. You can stick the letters on in any way you like, I just chose to do it in a 'collage' way.

Andddd, there you have it. Your very own 2014 Memories Jar. Every time something good happens, I'm going to write it on a piece of paper and put it in my jar. I'm going to aim to put at least one thing in every day as it will encourage me to look at my day and go 'that was a great thing about today' and therefore make me more think more positively about things. 

I hope this has given you some inspiration and if you'd like to see more DIY posts, please let me know as I enjoy doing them. My New Years Resolutions and Blog Plans post will be up on Sunday.

Thanks for reading x
