More photos and explanation after the break
For supplies I used:
- 1 Mason Jar
- As many large popsicle sticks as needed
- 3 different colors of paint
- A little bit of scrap fabric
I wrote down one date idea on each stick ranging from learning a new recipe together to taking a mini-weekend vacation. I then separated the sticks into three groups based on estimated price for each outing. This way, on a date night, we can choose how much we feel like saving or splurging.
Lightest Green = $0-$20
Medium Green = $20-$50
Darkest Green = $50+
Once the sticks were done I wrapped the scrap fabric around the outside. This will prevent any biased idea choosing by covering the text on the sticks. I then decorated the trim with stamps, words, and little embellishments. I went with a Nautical feel so the jar doubles as decor in the bedroom. While it still seems a little simple I am happy where it is now and I know I can easily add more if I ever feel it needs a little something extra.
