Are you looking for a memorial craft idea? A memorial keepsake is a great way to remember a family member or friend. This memory jar is an easy craft that only takes a few supplies.
Memorial Day is coming and remembrance crafts can provide a much-needed creative outlet. With just a recycled bottle, some paper, and a solar light you can leave a message or write a memory for someone you miss.
Memorial Craft Supplies
- A bottle
- Solar light
- Paper & pen
- Optional – Adhesive
Memorial Craft Instructions
Decide whether you want large sheets of paper or small pieces of paper.
Use the paper to write memories, messages, or prayers for a loved one. Decide if this is something for many individuals to share or just for you.
Once all the memories, well wishes, messages, etc are collected, fold or roll up and place in the bottle.
I had this bottle, it came from Dollar Tree but you could easily use a recycled bottle.
Pull your solar light off the stem.
Place the solar light on top of the bottle.
*Optional – if placing outside you can use silicone to adhere the solar light onto the bottle and keep moisture out.
*If you want to be able to add more notes, then glue your light to a cork or lid that will close the bottle but allow you to open it later.
It will look like this in the evening.
You can place it by a bench or chair where you can think about the person you are writing about/too. This is a beautiful way for the entire family to reminisce or share prayers for recovery or a safe return.
