DIY Valentine's Day Mason Jar Gift

Ohhh, Valentine’s Day…

A holiday that’s either loved or hated depending on the person’s relationship status.

I’ve never been wild about the holiday, but I do enjoy chocolate and hearts, so I’ll make it work. Of course, with that in mind, my Valentine’s Day themed craft involves candy. A lot of it!

If the person you want to gift the mason jar to isn’t a fan of sweets, you could fill it with nuts or mints. It’s the thought that matters, right?

This is a quick and easy one (really, it took longer to photograph the process than it did to make the gift). All you need to buy is the candy, jar and ribbon. I have a printable below for the lid insert and heart tag.

String the ribbon through the heart and tie it in a bow around your mason jar.

Now you can gift it to someone special—your significant other, a friend or maybe a parent. Or you can just keep it on your desk at work and eat all of it yourself. Whatever works for you 🙂
