Decorative Homemade Gifts in a Jar:
Wedding Gift Jar

Give them something meaningful to remember their bliss!

This homemade wedding gift jar is a great example of a decorative gift in a jar. The picture here is of a cherished homemade wedding gift, actually received by my husband and I, made by my sister in law.

The idea here is to pick a theme from the couple's wedding or honeymoon and use it to make a decorative gift in a jar. Since my husband and I went to Kauai for our honeymoon, my sister in law chose to create a tropical beach scene, complete with Hawaiian sand, beach glass and sea shells.

Interestingly, sand is a great base because the larger objects stay on top due to density. The beach scene gift jar turns out magical since you can shake and shake and the memorabilia will remain on top of the sand no matter what!

After creating the scene, my sister in law glued the lid shut to prevent an accidental spill. She then printed and glued down a pretty label with our names and wedding date to the surface of the lid and used pearlescent puff paint to outline the label in a decorative scribbled line.

It's been several years since our special day and we still have it on our book shelf next to our wedding photos to look at whenever we choose. I can say first hand that this is the kind of meaningful gift that will be cherished by the married couple for a life time.
