Today’s DIY is more of an idea that I fell in love as an alternative to the typical New Year’s resolutions. I don’t know about you but I never remember my resolutions – by February they’re pretty much forgotten. In an attempt to remember them this year, I decided to make a dream jar. What is a dream jar? Basically it’s a mason jar filled with items that symbolize various goals and hopes for the year ahead.
Gather little trinkets and mementos that have special meanings for you. For example, a photograph or a motivational quote, a paint brush if you wish to paint more, a fork if you want to cook more, or a buddha as symbol for a more zen lifestyle.
Arrange your objects of choice inside a mason jar and place the jar on a desk or bedside table where you’ll see it often, reminding you of the things you wanted to accomplish. At the end of the year, the jar will be like a little time capsule of your year that you can treasure forever! Wouldn’t it be cool to do this every year, and have a whole shelf of dream jars?
What would you put in your dream jar?
