DIY – Element Jars

One of the most Pinterest thing I’ve ever seen! Presenting, Element Jars! Original post can be found on MomDot. I knew this would be the perfect decor idea for the craft jars I recently purchased.

Element Jars: Create Sun, Moon, Earth, and Sky in these fun DIY Element Jar Necklaces Tutorial, picture instructions, Nebula Jar

So I set off gathering everything I needed, which wasn’t too much. Just paints and cotton balls. Instead of taking pictures, I thought it would be fun to film the whole thing. So feel free to watch me make some cute little element jars!

Here are my final jars!

I’m so happy with them! The whole DIY took longer than I thought, it’s a repetitive process of paint and cotton balls, but the end result is so worth it!

They now hang out on the window sills in our living room, and we both love them!

    1. They came out so neat! I like looking through Pinterest for DIY ideas that don’t look too complicated, but this is the first time I’ve actually tried one 😀

  9. The moon is my favorite. It feels like a galaxy in a bottle. I commend you for making the projects you see on Pinterest. I should go into mine and see what I can pull out. I keep adding to my DIY board but having been doing enough.

    I’ve got some marbling projects on there similar to the look of these. You may like them. You can make custom stationary, wall art, that sort of thing. Goodness I love Pinterest.

    1. Thanks Lyz! I only started saving pins to a board recently, I use to just look at the pictures haha! I’ve been wanting to try more DIY projects this year, and this one looked simple but cute!
      I’ll definitely go over and have a look at your boards!
