Creating a Memory Jar

Written by 

When you bring home souvenirs from your vacations, what happens to them? A lot of times, they may end up in a box, book, or just sitting somewhere without a home, waiting for maid services to dust.

You can make a memory jar including a photo and souvenirs from your vacation, and even make a collection of them by making one for each vacation. It couldn’t be easier to make, either!

Here are some examples of memory jars you can make:

The Beach Jar. Create a beach jar from your beach vacation with a few simple pieces. Add sand to the bottom of your jar, and then add souvenirs like seashells, sand dollars, and drift wood. Finally, add a picture to the jar, then put a lid on it and tie it with a ribbon or twine.

The Mountain Jar. If you’ve taken a trip to the mountains, you probably wanted to take some of the fresh air home with you. Do the next best thing by creating a jar to memorialize your trip. A little bit of rich soil in the bottom of the jar with a couple of sticks and some pine will set the stage for your favorite vacation picture.

The Wedding Jar. Everyone has items left over from their wedding, and you can create a jar to display commemorating the event. To the bottom of your jar, add some ribbon or tulle in one of your wedding colors, then add a candle and dried flowers from the wedding. Top it off with your picture and you’ve created a unique way to display your wedding memories.

A collection of memory jars like these would be a meaningful, sentimental decoration for any room. What jars could you make?
