DIY Inspirational Change Jar!

Hello Sunshine! Thanks for stopping by!

I am completely crazy about making ordinary things cute and adorable! Even the boring jars you throw your loose change in. While at work a friend of mine keeps an old coffee container on her desk with her loose change in it. The theory, if your change is at work on your desk in a container, you’re not sitting and counting it out (assuming you work while you’re at work haha!) I personally don’t have an issue with dipping into my money because I love to save money. However it is hard for some people not to dip into savings as soon as they get it *cough cough my husband* So if you are struggling to keep that money saved back, change is an easy way to save back money but you wont even miss it. Put it somewhere in your office or not as easily accessible to keep it saved.

Now seeing as how I am keeping my change at work, I don’t want some clunky coffee container on my desk junking up my space. My alternative: a cute decorated jar to hold my change and double as a cute desk accessory!

Let me apologize ahead of time for the not so glamorous photos, I took them with my Iphone and the project was a spur of the moment decision! But still take a gander and see how I done this SUPERRRR easy simple project! And, Go!

 

Step 1:

We are going to start off with a plain jar (I got mine at the Dollar store for $1). I picked a quote “Dream Big” to inspire me to save money for all the things I dream of doing or buying. I got on Picnik and picked a pretty font and just printed out my quote.

Step 2:

The next step is super simple, just take the printed out quote & cut it small enough that you can fit it in the jar. Then secure it with scotch tape in the position you want your quote to be in.

Step 3:

The thirst step is the fun part… You just take your warmed up hot glue gun and trace the quote. *TIP: Definitely take your time, I did not and take my time and now mine looks layered because I didn’t go slow and make the words very thick and went back later thickening them up. It is noticeable up close if you end up doing more then one layer of hot glue*

Let Dry!!!!!

**NOTE: I forgot to take pictures but after the hot glue dried I took the jar outside and spray painted it with a light pink spray paint. After it dried I done another coat or two to make sure it was opaque.**

 

 

Step 4:

You are almost done now, see this project was super easy! Now its time to tackle the lid. A regular jar lid is not ideal because then you would have to screw the lid off every time you want to add change or money to the bank. Most lids come apart so I just took the middle piece of the lid and traced it onto a piece of cardboard. A cereal box or anything cardboard would work for this, I used a box from fiber one bars. I then threw the original piece aside because this cardboard cutout will now be taking its place.

Step 5:

Now, super simple easy step. Cut out a hole in the cardboard circle you just made with a blade or exacto knife. You can make this however large or small you would like. I tried to make mine big enough that I could put folded up dollar bills in mine in case I felt super saving-savvy and wanted to save back bills as well as change.

Step 6:

Another easy-peasy step, paint the cardboard cut out and lid a color of your choice. I chose gold because I am loving the pastel and gold classic colors. I used a Folk Art metallic acrylic paint from Walmart that was super cheap and a small foam brush to apply. Let dry and put the lid back together.

Ta-Da!

Wasn’t that simple? Just put the lid on your dry painted jar and start saving to your hearts desire. And now not only do you have a cute bank to save change in but an inspirational accessory to make your desk a tad bit cuter.

Again thank you for stopping by and I hope you stay tuned for more projects and other random sunshine coming your way soon.

Delicious Tropical Smoothie Recipe!

Hello Sunshine!

I’m not gonna lie, I’ve become a huge fan of smoothies lately. I recently decided to try and live a little more of a healthy lifestyle (not saying I’m not gonna still have my chocolate fix every now and then). However I have found that smoothies are a guilt free way to enjoy a delicious breakfast or snack! I done tons of research on different smoothies, I can be picky at times. However this Tropical Passion Smoothie is a go for any picky eater! It tastes delicious and you are getting some good healthy fruit in ya body!

I originally found this recipe from ‘Blogilates’ She is a great youtuber/fitness guru. She made this smoothie look so delicious and easy I had to try it. So I decided to give it a try. Just for reference I’ll put the recipe below, its superrrr simple!

 

Ingredients:

5 Frozen Strawberries

1 Banana

1/2 Cup of Almond Milk

1/2 Cup of Orange Juice

About a handful of Ice!

Directions: Blend together until well mixed and boom!-delicious smoothie!

 

*Tip: I’ve learned fruit blends up better when frozen, but if you decide to freeze your banana let me suggest you un-peel it first. I froze one just the way it is peel and all, and dear lord did I have a time getting that frozen sucker unpeeled. *

Also if you don’t necessarily like Almond Milk let me suggest you just try it in smoothies. It’s good for you and you cant even taste the Almond Milk in delicious Smoothies. You can always use regular milk as an alternative if you definitely do not want to try almond milk but all I’m saying is…almond milk is great for smoothies.
