Hello my fellow crafters! Here’s to a new day and a lovely craft to share. Today, I’m sharing my third craft. Hurray, we’re halfway there! Making each craft has been fun and frustrating at the same time, (my son barely lets me do anything, lol.) Today Valentines craft is called, “Jar of hearts,” just like the song by Christina Perri.
Jar of hearts
Materials & Tools:
- Glass jar (I used 2 from Dollar Tree)
- Twine (optional)
- Glittery Vase Fillers (optional)
- 1 construction paper or vinyl
- Paint brush
- Hot glue gun
Step 1: Wipe your jar clean (soap and water, or rubbing alcohol will do.)
Step 2: Fold your paper in half. Use scissors to cut-out a heart shape. If you are doing more than one jar, cutout as many hearts as you need. Also, if you need to draw your heart out, go for it!)
Step 4: Once your heart is attached. Choose your paint color and begin to paint your jar.
Step 5: After allowing the jar to dry, remove the heart. Since I use paper, paint got in between the jar and the heart. It wasn’t too bad, I just scraped the excess paint off by using a toothpick.
Step 6: This next step is optional. Fill the jar with a filler. You can use rocks, sand, lights, or even add a candle.
Step 7: With or without the lid while using hot glue, you can choose to wrap twine or a ribbon around the top, and then tie it into a bow.
Now pose for the camera. . .click, click! You’re Jar of hearts is complete to add to your beautiful Valentine’s day decor. Be sure to send your pictures of your crafts via social media or email. I would to see them! What would you do differently? Let’s chat in the comments below!
