DIY adventure fund jar // video tutorial

adventure jar DIY
You've probably seen pictures of these "adventure jars" all over tumblr or Pinterest. I was inspired to make my own, so I can start saving up for future trips and adventures!

To decorate my jar, I printed one of my photos from an adventure I had last summer in California. I attached it to the inside of the jar with washi tape, and created a dangly, beaded charm to wrap around the top. I really love how it turned out, and seeing it on my dresser definitely motivates me to keep adding money to it to save up for my next great adventure!

for adventures
I created a video to show exactly how I made my jar. I hope you enjoy!
