The New Year is a great time to start fresh and create new goals for yourself. So much opportunity and adventure to be had! However, resolutions can be hard to keep. Sometimes, we need that little extra push. We decided this year would be dedicated to traveling! So, today on the blog we will be showing you our DIY to hold us to our word. If you want something, go get it! We’re going to walk you step by step on our travel fund jar. Now, this jar doesn’t have to be a fund just for traveling, it can be whatever you have chosen to save up money for! Feel free to totally personalize this.

Supplies:

  1. Mason jar
  2. Chalk board
  3. Chalk/chalk pin
  4. Jute/string
  5. Spray paint
  6. Command strips
  7. Heart shaped cut-out

Begin by taking your mason jar and taping on the heart shaped cut out in the center. Make sure it is laying totally flat. Spray paint the entire jar. Once dried, peel off the heart cut out.

Add a heavy duty command strip to the back of the jar and to the bottom center of the chalk board.

Next, take your chalk and label the board with what you are saving up for.

Take the string and cut strands that can be tied around the top of the jar in a bow.

Use the command strips that have already been secured and attach the jar onto the chalk board.

Need simple New Years Eve decor? We’ve got ya covered. These cutie star cutouts are sure to do the trick for any occasion. We’re loving the neutral colors with the little touch of sparkle! Hang these practically anywhere in your room or throughout the house. You can also lay them flat at the snack table for an extra touch of NYE glam. Follow along to see how to make them!

Supplies:

  1. Craft paper
  2. Scissors
  3. Glue gun
  4. Tape
  5. Pencil
  6. Star stensil
  7. String
  8. Mini sparkle pom poms

Begin by tracing the star stencil on the craft paper of your choice. We used several different patterns, but all within the same color scheme.

Use your pencil and lightly trace around the stencil.

Once you have traced about 3-4 stars out per piece of paper, begin to cut them out.

You should have several stars cutout with different patterns.

Lay your stars out in whichever pattern you like. We made 2 separate strands. Place a pom pom in between each star.

Cut your string as long as you need it to place all the stars and pom poms evenly.

Tape the string to the back of your stars. Hot glue the pom noms in between the stars.

Happy New Year!
