DIY outdoor solar light using mason jars.
Start on January 1st with an empty jar. Throughout the year write the good things that happened to you on little pieces of paper. On December 31st, open the jar and read all the amazing things that happened to you that year.
Upcycling: Pillared Jar Storage ~ Another project that I see being a great gift idea - fill with candy or gum balls. They can also be personalized with the recipient's name. They don't have to be expensive, as you can re-purpose items you pick up at second-hand stores!
