DIY Memory Jar- a GREAT Inexpensive Gift!

I’ve been into doing more DIY projects with meaning lately.  This memory jar is AMAZING and very easy to make and customize. It holds all your dearest memories that you would like to look back on when feeling nostalgic.  This will also make a great gift for a close loved one. You can fill the jar with all the memories you have with them and allow room for them to also write some memories in it.  Trust me, they will love it!


  • A Jar– you can get this from the dollar store, or you can use any container you would like to put your memories in
  • Colored paper– this just makes the memories you write more colorful in the jar 🌈 but of course, you may use whatever colored paper you like
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon– this is optional.  You can decorate the memory jar however you like!

I encourage you to put your own touch on it! 😉 I put old memories both that made me crack up laughing and those that touched my heart.  I sat down for about 20 minutes and had a great time reminiscing.  Once that’s done, you are now ready to add in your new memories as you make them! Have fun! Here’s the memory that I made:
