DIY Dorm: Memory Jar

I originally came across this post on Pinterest and knew I had to try it out. It’s a simple craft that helps you organize clutter without throwing away trinkets or memories. All you need is a clean jar (I used a salsa jar) and some glass paint (I chose black). For a decorative touch, I painted the outside with a fun design. Voila! My soon-to-be-recycling became a quaint keepsake jar in a few simple steps.

What You’ll Need:

 

An empty jar (make sure to clean it thoroughly)

Keepsakes to put inside

Puff paint or glass paint

Paintbrush

How will you be decorating your jar? Post a comment below!
