Supplies needed (affiliate links below):

Valentine's Day Mason Jar - an easy DIY Valentine's Day gift. Fill with your favorite red pink and white candy!

  • To start out I used my Silhouette cutting machine to cut out an X and an O. Each of my letters  measured 2.25 inches tall.
    (Note: If you don’t have a cutting machine, there are MANY other options. You can find cute heart stickers and place them all over the jar, you can get some vinyl paper from the craft store and trace a big “X” and “O” or “hearts” out and cut them free hand.)
  • The vinyl makes it really easy to remove from the jar! Get some here (affiliate)
  • Next tip the jar upside down and paint the whole thing. You can use chalk paint or spray paint. I also spray painted the lid ring red.
  • After you finish painting remove the vinyl or stickers.
  • I wanted this jar to look a little bit worn so I took some 400 grit sand paper and roughed up the edges a little bit.
  • After all of the paint was dry I filled the jar with some sweet treats and embellished it.

 Print and cut out the tags. Use a puncher to make a hole in the tag and thread the bakers twine or ribbon through it.

Cut enough fabric to cover the top of the jar. Tie the ribbon with the tag round the jar lid.
