The 14 Days of Valentine - heart mason jars

January 25, 2016

Prepare for the awe-inspiring day of Valentine's early by crafting these beautiful heart mason jars...

DIY a Valentine's Day Heart Jar

Step 1, to get started you'll need a few tools:

  1. Spray Paint, color of your choice (preferably red or pink for V-day)
  2. Decorative ribbon or yarn
  3. Painter's tape
  4. Any sized jar
  5. Box Cutter Knife or Scalpel
  6. Warm White 50 LED String Lights or a flameless candle depending on the size of your jar (a tea light is recommended to fit any sized jar also, but be careful of the flame!)
  7. Permanent Marker

Step 2, Stick on a few stripes of painter's tape on one side of the jar. You can then draw any size heart on the tape using a permanent marker.

Step 3, With a box cutter or scalper knife, cut along the heart you drew on the tape.  Then start peeling off the tape around the heart.

Step 4, Start spraying all over the jar with spray paint.  After it's fully dried, carefully peel off the taped heart.

Step 5, With the decorative ribbon or yarn that you've picked out, tie a bow around the top of the jar.  It's a nice way to add a little more texture to your project.

Step 6, Add in the 50 LED lights or a flameless tea light.

Now you're ready to share with your loved one!  Even if it doesn't turn out perfectly, they'll definitely appreciate your efforts... Remember that making the jars is half the fun :-)
