Date Jar DIY

This a project I did quite a while ago to combat Jake's constant nagging on the weekends of "what can we do?" I'd seen it on pinterest a fair bit, was bored one day, went to the craft store and gave it a go! I don't know why I never shared this, because it definitely works - even if we sometimes put the sticks back 3475975367 times until we find something we actually feel like doing.

All I did for this easy DIY is decorate the jar with pretty felt letter stickers and ribbon, paint half my sticks pink and wait for them to dry, then trawl the intenet for date ideas (50 in total) to write on the sticks.

It's super easy, it works and I like the way the jar looks on the shelf. What more could you want?
