fortune jar DIY

Last time I was in Anthropologie, I saw a jar of fortunes to open and read at a party (perfect for New Years!). I thought it would be a super easy thing to DIY, so I made my own! I started a tradition last year where at the beginning of every semester my friends and I all get together, cook dinner, and hang out the night before classes start. It's really great to have all my friends together before we get too busy with school. I thought this fortune jar would be the perfect thing for our dinner party coming up since it is also the beginning of a new year!

This DIY barely needs a tutorial because it's so simple. I recycled a jar and spray painted the lid. For the fortunes, I cut small squares of paper, wrote something nice on each one, and rolled it up with a little washi tape to secure it.

I think the jar turned out cute and I'm excited to share it with my friends! 


  1. I love this DIY! It's simple to do but I would have never of thought to have done it if I hadn't seen this. The paper you used for it is so cute!
