With Mother’s Day only 3 days away ….. BOY did that sneak up on us FAST, I thought that I would share with you a really super quick and easy DIY Glass Jar Photo Gift Idea!

- Drink Style Jar – I had a jar that I had kept with a chip in the top but you can find a similar over at Amazon.
- Favorite Photo
- Photo Paper
- Old music sheet or book/newspaper print
- Stickers – I found my stickers at my local Kmart store but Tim Hotzl has a cool pad of 1088 word stickers which are very similar
- Small Peg
Print out your favourite picture onto some photo paper. I used one of my most favourite shots of my kiddies and me from some time ago, ohhhh how time has flown 🙁
You may have to shrink it down to fit in the jar. I reduced my photo to wallet size so that the sweet photo fitted into the jar nicely.
Cut your photo out and apply your sticker somewhere to the top of your photo along with your small peg. Place your photo into the front of the jar. Then using your scissors cut out a square piece of your music sheet and cover the top of your jar using the jute to secure in place!
There you have a nice gift not only for Mother’s Day but any special occasion! They make a lovely wedding, Christmas or Birthday Gifts too. And for our wedding, I made up a whole stack of them as a thank you gift and forgot to keep one for myself!! Oops, oh well I’ll just have to make another one!
I have also made these sweet old bottles to sell at my markets and over at my shop.
Don’t have time to make now? Be sure to pin for later! 🙂
