DIY: Quick & Easy Thankfulness Jar

Hey cupcakes! Thanksgiving (aka my favorite holiday!) is just around the corner, so I wanted to share a super easy turkey-day-inspired DIY with you all today... My family likes to write down a few things that we are thankful for each year and then we read them throughout Thanksgiving dinner. It is a great way to share memories and share our thanks, and it is something I would definitely recommend :) This DIY is an easy jar to store all of these thankful notes, and it would make a perfect centerpiece!

What You Need
-Jar of some sort (could be a mason jar or any other glass container)
-Paint or paint pen
-Stencil (optional)
-Other decorations (optional - some ideas include fake leaves, stickers, etc.)

What To Do:
1. Figure out what you want your jar to say. It could a simple "Give Thanks" or you could make it personalized for your family.

2. Either use a stencil or freehand your message onto the glass. If you want thinner/cleaner lines, I suggest using a thin paintbrush or even a paint pen!

3. Let dry completely.

4. Decor your jar with any other decorations. This could be ribbon, rhinestones, fake leaves, etc. Anything to make your centerpiece the star of your dinner table!

5. Ta-da! Let your family write on strips of paper and fill that jar to the brim :)
