12 Ideas for Valentine’s Day Jars


It has been six days since I last wrote a blog post. I don’t think I’ve gone six days in at least 2 years. I had pretty much the worst cold of my life last week, and with all the madness of Chanukah and Christmas and all my sponsored posts, I kinda just needed a break. But I’m back. I realize that it has been a while since I wrote a craft post just for fun. As bloggers, we need to work way ahead of the game to gain any attention for seasonal posts, so here it is, in December 2014 still – my first Valentine’s Day post of 2015. Hooray for no procrastination! I was searching Pinterest for some fun seasonal ideas, and I found so many cute ideas for Valentine’s Day jars, why not do a quick round-up. I’ll begin with my craft: Valentine’s Day Jars.


  • 2 Mason jars with lids
  • Pink spray paint
  • Red spray paint
  • Spray adhesive
  • White paper
  • Scissors
  • Markers
  • Ribbons
  • Colored paper scraps
  • Aluminum foil
  • Hershey’s Hugs and Kisses


Gather your materials. Make sure your jars are super clean.

Clean jars

Cover the tops of your jars with aluminum foil. This will prevent the spray adhesive and spray paint from going inside the jars.

Jar lids

Cut two heart shapes out of plain white paper. Use spray adhesive to adhere the hearts to the jar. The spray adhesive is easy to remove after. You may be able to use a glue stick as well.

Hearts on jarsSpray paint one jar light pink and one jar red. Be sure to stand far back from the jars to avoid over-spraying and dripping. Touch up as needed.

Red painted jar

Remove the hearts from the jars. You will have a heart-shaped window to see your candies.

Painted jarsFill each jar with Valentine’s Day candies. Add a label and ribbons to the top of each jar as decorations. Your beautiful Valentine’s Day jars are ready to display!

Kisses and Hugs Jars

  1. Cute ideas! Kudos to you for blogging through the holidays. I can’t seem to get myself to focus on writing… Then again, I was up all night with a sick baby, so maybe that’s why…
