DIY time capsules are a wonderful way to cap off the year and welcome a new one on its way. If you share a time capsule with the people you love, then all the better. These New Year’s time capsule ideas are the perfect inspiration to help get you and your whole family started with this exciting project.
The neat thing about time capsules is that they’re incredibly personal, which means that you and your family can personalize the way you use your capsule. For instance, some folks like to make it an annual activity by filling one up at the end of each year, and then opening it the next year prior to filling up a brand-new one yet again. Other families like to make time capsules an occasional thing for major New Year’s celebrations (such as the start of a new decade). The time period between closing a time capsule and opening it back up can vary, too. Some people peak inside them every year, whereas others wait 10 years to crack them open. It just depends on what practice suits your family’s needs the best.
Much like the way you use your capsule can vary quite a bit, the appearance of your capsule can change as well. Some people like to adorn their time capsules with sparkles or ribbons for some pizazz, while other folks prefer to take a more modern and unique approach with their time capsules, such as one blogger who made her time capsule look like a “message in a bottle.” And of course, what you put inside of the time capsule is completely up to you. Check out what a few clever people did with their own DIY crafts, and see if you get some great ideas of your own!
