After writing my post on contentment and dreams and drooling over all of the super awesome photos of dream jars on Pinterest lately, I knew I just had to make one of my very own. So I decided to make a jar for my precious dreams on freaky friday (friday the thirteenth) while watching the movie Freaky Friday (love that movie!) I used an old Kerr glass jar, instant decoupage glue, some old aqua blue tissue paper I had lying around my room and a paint brush to create the base for my dream jar.
Surprisingly this was a pretty fun "craft-time" for me, didn't take too long to do and I didn't end up making a huge mess (like I usually do.) After the tissue paper/decoupage glue had dried on the jar I cut out some double sided sticky glitter letters that spelled out d-r-e-a-m to grace one side of my dream jar and I decided to make the top of the jar glittery too.
(And yes, I'm completely aware that my r and s is backwards. ;)
If you look closely at the photo above ^ you can spy one of my dreams which is to get a mustang. I love muscle cars...and yes, I'm a girl I swear. If I see a Mustang you can usually bet that I'll be drooling and teary eyed in an instant. It's kind of pathetic, but totally true. Jared can vouch for me on this one.
I'd love to know if you're planning to make a dream jar of your own sometime. Please comment here and let me know if you do!
It was a lot of fun to make my dream jar and then to dream up everything I could possibly ever want, desire or imagine to grace strips of ruled notebook paper with inky letters to fill my plain empty jar and turn it into a sparkling lovely jar of dreams.
Make a dream jar or don't, but please keep on dreaming friend!
P.S. - I'll be away for the weekend...again...this time though I'll be helping my grandparents move. So I'll be sure to catch up with ya'll sometime next week. Here's to hoping you have a dream filled and very much so blessed weekend!
