DIY Gift Idea #3: Coffee Jar Crafts (Anniversary Gift Idea) | Lifeasapetite


To all you lovers out there, I thought I'd share a little gift I make for my anniversary with J. And the inspiration comes from a simple coffee jar.

Things you'll need
Coffee Jar
Wrapping Paper/Coloured Paper/Lucky Star Paper
Items that mean most to you and your significant other.
Other optional craft tools e.g. glitter glue

It may all seem like a little muddle but I'll try to break it down.

I really like this jar because it basically has two compartments (if you're interested it is the Douwe Egberts Pure Gold Coffee). As I had been making these cute little stars since the day I started dating J (one each day, one jar for each year) I knew I'd fill the main compartment with them. But it was the second smaller compartment that I really liked, because I could fill it up with other special things. So I made a few bracelets and filled it with other things I thought were special.

If you would like to make these for your significant other, then feel free :)

You don't have to fill the jar with stars or bracelets etc, just fill it with anything that you feel is special to your relationship :)

I'd love to see what you guys came up with.

Take care and speak soon :)
