Thankfulness Jar

Each November, I seem to count my blessings a little more often.  This year I decided to create a little Thankfulness Jar to collect daily notes of gratitude. 


This is a simple little project.  Attach a strip of burlap to the jar with hot glue (that way it'll peel off later if necessary).  Add a strip of cotton - ruffled if you like.  And then top with a piece of ribbon.  Pretty, simple and ready to fill :)
