Whimsy Jar

I was up late one night looking through Flickr when I came across images like these, turns out they are whimsy jars!

Quite simple to make...

1. Get a jar that you fancy to look at
2. fill it with things you enjoy...and that will fit inside
3. screw the lid on
4. you're done!

The whole purpose of it is to have something cute to look at or to remind yourself of all the great things there are when you're feeling not quite fantastic.

I intend to make one and fill it with things that will remind me of happiness when i'm feeling sour.

I would like to challenge all of you to make your own whimsy jars, fill it with what makes you happiest whether its stickers and glitter or little magazine cut outs of pin up girls and fake tattoos or even plastic butterflies and fake is all up to you!

New Year's Eve is ALMOST HERE!!!


  1. That is a lovely idea! I might have to make one :)

  2. That looks great! I tend to fill up jars with foodie things but may well have to divert one to have a go at this :)

  3. this is a good idea. I should make one for work, so when I have a bad customer I have something positive to look at.

  4. Namine: That's a good idea about putting it in your work space. :)

  5. Oh! I guess I have a whimsy drawer already!
