D.I.Y Happiness Jar

Good morning, my lovelies! Sending you much love and good vibes today. I learned a super cool craft from the ever-stunning Bethany Mota this past weekend and I just knew that I needed to share it with ya’ll. If you’ve never heard of her before, check out her Youtube channel; you won’t regret it. Her videos never fail to put a smile on my face and she’s a crafter at heart so she’s always coming up with cool ways to make things. This project is based on the Happiness Jar she showed in her newest #Roomspiration video.

In short, a Happiness Jar is a way to stay grounded and grateful. Each and every day you add another piece of paper that describes one thing (at the least!) that made you feel happy or smile that day. I really enjoy the bright colors of Post-it Notes so I used scissors to cut off the sticky part and keep the colorful papers next to a gel pen; of course all this is next to my jar. This jar can be **whatever** you want it to be and however you want it to look-as long as it makes you delighted to gaze upon it! It could be a Mason jar, a mini bucket, a box, or a washed glass bottle like I used (It was a Tazo Iced Tea bottle). Decorate it however the heck you want to. This is YOUR little Jar of Happy. Personally, I made sure to include sparkly fibers, charms, glitter, and gems. Go nuts, babe.

I’ve only been using it for two days but I truly feel like it helps me hold on to positive energy. It’s definitely something to try. Let me know if you have tried this or already own one. Do you feel like it contributes positively to your life? What does it look like? How often do you add to it?
