DIY | Love Jars for Valentine’s Day – 4 Ways

Confession: I am a MASON JAR HOARDER. I actually have one large cabinet that is just dedicated for jars. Each time I attempt to give them away, I always find a reason to hold on to them. It’s a sickness, really. Haha. But who wouldn’t want to contract something that can be this pretty?

Having planned a bunch of baby showers and bridal showers over the years, they have had plenty of use! My go-to decor are mason jars, tied multiple times with a ribbon or string, with a few sprigs of baby’s breath. I thought I’d change it up for Valentine’s Day. I found some canvas heart stickers at the dollar store and immediately brought them home. I hadn’t intended on 4 different designs but after playing around with some other materials I had laying around, I couldn’t help myself. They look cute individually and even prettier in multiples of 3 or more.

  1. If using stickers, skip to step 2. If using fabric or felt, cut out enough hearts for your jars, about 1.5-2″ in diameter.
  2. Measure the burlap and cut to fit around the jar. Secure with glue dots or adhesive.
  3. Centre the heart on the burlap and apply adhesive. Vary the width of the burlap to create different looks.
  4. Fill your jars with flowers, greens/shrubs, branches, pens, straws, cutlery, lollipops…

  1. If using stickers, skip to step 2. If using fabric or felt, cut out enough hearts for your jars, about 1.5-2″ in diameter.

  3. Wrap twine around jar several times, adjusting the strands before tying into a bow. Centre the bow in the front.
  4. Fill your jars with flowers, greens/shrubs, branches, pens, straws, cutlery, lollipops…
