For the past two months, I have had a blast slipping in pieces of paper with little memories created by our little crazy family. From Mr. T flying across the couch in his first superman stunt, to dear friends stopping-in to say HI; it's all in our little 2012 Memory Jar. The idea: Anytime you have a fun moment you want to record, find a slip of paper, write it down, and slip into your Memory Jar. During the year on special days, or on New Year's Eve, read the memories you created together as a family.
You'll need a candle stick, metal lid, and a wooden handle. I used gorilla glue to bond the mason jar with the candlestick and did my best job painting it a turquoise antique finish. You can bond the top with gorilla glue or fastened it with a screw from the bottom of the lid up into the wooden piece. These candlestick jars also make great candy holders! Or, just grab in jar and start recording those memories!
What are some unique ways you keepsake your memories?
