DIY Memory Pebble Pot

Hello everyone,

Long time, no speak. I hope you're all doing well and having a fabulous June so far! I thought I'd come back and share with you this little DIY of mine that I've been using for when I go on holiday and want to keep some memories. It's great for this time of year now to make this as I'm sure many of you are planning on travelling soon and working on your tans if not already been on holiday. 

Let's jump into it...

As you can see this is a very simple idea but looks good and is great for recalling where you've travelled and to get nostalgic re-reading them.

Above is all you need;

- Sharpie/s (Colours of your choice)
- Stones/Pebbles/Shells (from location travelled)
- Glass jar/dish/bowl 

So you just need a pen/marker that can write on the pebbles or shells and a dish to keep them in, very simple. You then write on the Location and Date of travel and place them in your dish.

Below you can see closer up some of the things written onto the stones, with some of the location names shortened so they fit on.

To take this further you could even add in battery powered lights like these below, which will make the dish look very fancy (and like it took you longer than 5 minutes 😄)

Or you could even make individual dishes for separate trips...e.g. make a sandy shell one themed from the Bahamas? 

I hope you enjoyed this little idea, comment below or tweet me @teacupsnmakeup and tell me if you created it yourself! Thank you for reading <3 and I'll speak to you in the next post xx
