Valentine’s Day Candle Holders – DIY

DIY Valentine Day Candle Mason Jar

The other day I mentioned that FringeKid and I went a little crazy with the glue gun.  Today I’m going to show you what we made.

We spent zero dollars on making these jars.  We gathered up scraps of this and pieces of that from all around the house and then we set to work.

I generally wash and save spaghetti sauce jars and salsa jars.  Every now and then they come in handy.

So we raided my stash of jars and set to work.  Most of the ideas were FringeKid’s, because I honestly didn’t have my craft on.  Martha Stewart would have clucked her tongue in disapproval.

We used heart shaped cookie cutters to trace hearts on a sheet of scrapbook paper and a book page.  Then we cut them out and modge-podged  them to the jar.  Nothing could be easier.

If you’re not crafty, but want to make something with your kids for Valentine’s Day, I would definitely suggest getting yourself a pair of scissors, some glue, and a jar, because this is the craft for you.

I even think one of these jars filled with candy would make a cute teacher gift.  You could always paint the lid red and seal the jar back up.

Are you making any Valentine Day decorations or gifts?

I’d love to hear all about them.

    How cute is that? We’re working mothers here, so we feel like DIY projects are great ways to spend some quality time with your kids. Thank you for sharing this project with us! We’re excited to try it with our kiddos at home.
