DIY Summer Money Stash Jar

Summer is fast approaching for me and I'm crazy excited! Exam season is flying by and I'm done for summer in a week and a half! I have so many plans which you'll all be able to know about as I am blogging everyday for 12 weeks! Now having all these plans is great but there is one thing that we all need to fulfil pretty much 90% of them. MONEY. Unfortunately, money determines how good of a summer you'll have because let's face it, nothing comes free.

I decided to do a super quick DIY project which will allow you to save up just for your summer break. Whether it be to buy tickets for a theme park or for ice-cream, your summer stash will give you the opportunity to do as you wish.

Resources needed:

  • Scissors
  • A glass jar
  • Paint brushes/sponges (optional)
  • Permeant Marker
  • A ruler
  • Glue (I used a hot glue gun but you can use any glue of your choice)
  • Paint (optional)
  • Craft/scrapbook paper
  • Other crafty bits you may want to decorate

I got most of my things from Wilko and Poundland. You don't even need to buy the Jar, you can thoroughly clean out a pasta sauce jar or anything already in your house.

Step 1:

Choose the materials you want to use, such as paper.

Step 2:

Measure your paper against the jar and cut according to the best size. You can use a ruler to get a crisp edge or go free hand.

Step 3:

Glue the paper around the jar.

Step 4:

Use either paper or some sort of card for the writing. I used a craft tag I got in a pack in Poundland.

Step 5:

Write what ever you wish. I wrote summer with a black Sharpie and gold letter stickers for the word stash.

Step 6:

Add any other decorative bits you'd like.

Step 7:


See, quick and easy! Now anytime you get loose change or money, just put it In the jar and watch it all add up!
