What you need:
1. 2 gallon glass jar  (A small jar won’t do if you’re aiming to achieve this dazzling and dainty look)
2. 4-5 big packs of Oreos cookies. Go with the flavour you fancy most. From the original to birthday, chocolate cream, ice cream, red velvet, cookie dough and s’more flavours – you name it, they’ve got it all. Any type of round or square cookie works, too. Get creative. French macaroons also do the job greatly and add a lot of extra colour too.

How to:
1. Sanitise your jar. Rinse it with warm water and let it dry thoroughly.
2. Unwrap the Oreo packs. Here’s where the magic happens. Start hand-arranging the cookies one by one all the way around on the edge against the outer rim and work your way in, but be sure to leave a little space amid the jar to save on cookies.
3. Keep stacking the cookies until you reach the top and voila! You’ve got yourself a cookie jar to amp up the space of your home.
