Memory Jars

While framed photos are a great way to display a captured moment, these Memory Jars take the personal display a step further! Gather your favorite photo and a few mementos from a special event to customize your own jar. With a handful of supplies and a few minutes spent crafting, you can keep special items protected, while enabling handheld viewing at the same time! Place your personalized display on a table or shelf in your home for frequent reminiscing.

Shop at Dollar Tree – Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 12- or 16-oz. Glass Jar with Lid
  • Photographs and Mementos 
  • Optional: Ribbon or String with Labeled Tag

Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. Fill your glass jar with a photograph or two, along with special items from that event. For our first jar, we chose to use a photo, along with sand, shells, and a feather from a beach trip. For our second jar, we used a wedding photograph, flower petals, and ribbon from a bouquet (see image below).
  2. Once the jar is full of the selected items, tightly seal with the lid.
  3. Attach a label with the date and description of the memorable event and place on display!
