. recycled [spaghetti sauce] mason jar (or new jar)
. decorative paper
. paper cutter
. piece of scrap white paper
. scotch tape
. colored pencils
. fancy scissors (mine are scalloped)
- Using a paper cutter, cut out a piece of decorative paper to the size needed to cover around the center of the jar.
- For an added bit of visual interest, I strung a few buttons on a piece of jute and tied the button- strung-jute around the mouth of the jar and I used a pink colored pencil to color around the name on my label.
Oh, and I finished mine off by covering the entire jar with packing tape. You can adhere your decorative paper and label onto the jar with glue, but for some reason I went the tape route. That's it! Enjoy your new money jar!
PS: The instructions probably take a bit longer than doing/completing the actual project.
NOTE: I'm using this jar for my Christmas fund for next year and I'm going to adhere to my 2015 Savings Plan that I created a couple of days ago (see below). Yes, I could put this 'Christmas Fund Money' in the bank, but I'm choosing to go a different route, a funner, more guerrilla, diy savings route. Care to join me? Ha, ha!
