this DIY is a combination of two ideas that I found on pinterest; a bunny jar tutorial from torie jayne and a picture of a glass jar filled with little notes.

the idea is sweet and simple, whenever something good happens you to this year write it on a slip of paper and add it to the jar. at the end of the year open up the jar and remind yourself all the nice things that happened in 2014! (I guarantee if you're anything like me you'll have forgotten about some of them..)

it's amazingly easy to make this DIY, you'll need a glass jar, a small rabbit figurine, glue and spray paint.

here's how to go about making your own:


I've used a kilner jam jar but I do also recommend re-using old glass jars (empty pasta sauce jars with the labels removed are perfect for this project) 

glue the small bunny to the middle of the lid using a glue gun or super glue. leave to dry then spray the bunny lid with any colour of your choice. make sure you cover your work surfaces and apply several light layers so the paint doesn't drip or run

I picked up my bunny from the toy department in john lewis but amazon or eBay should have small toys like this too.


once dry screw the lid back onto the jar and you're finished! collect some pretty sheets of paper and whenever something good happens remember to write it down and pop it in the jar!!


if 2014 turns into a year of very bad things I can always just fill my jar with haribo.. everyone's a winner!

what do you think.. is this something you may do too?
