DIY: House Warming Gift

 Happy Friday! 

Today we have another DIY project you. 

I am currently trying to build some go-to gift ideas for friends and family. 
I'm not talking Christmas of Birthday gifts. 
I'm talking about those little gifts that pop up 
throughout the year - Baby Shower, Bridal Shower,
Wedding, Graduation, Hostess gifts etc. 

These gifts I always want to be thoughtful, 
but I don't want to break the bank. 

Recently some friends of ours bought a new house, 
and I went looking for a housewarming gift. 
I turned to Pinterest for some inspiration and settled on a "Jar Gift." 
Here are some examples: 

I decided to create my own Housewarming "jar gift." 

When creating a jar gift, it is important to choose a theme to guide you. 

It could be a color, and type of product, a hobby theme; 
anything you want really. 
But the bottom line is choose a theme to tie it all together. 

Since I was in need of a housewarming gift, 
I choose cleaning supplies as my product theme and lemon yellow as my color scheme. 
Here is what I came up with:
