Homemade: Valentine's Candy Jars

Ooh, I L-O-V-E this project because it is so ridiculously easy and so ridiculously cute! With a few simple steps and a little creativity, you can turn your old glass baby food jars into cute treat jars. I made mine for Valentine's Day, but was inspired by the uber-talented Ashley at Make It and Love It, who made her jars for autumn. These would also work well as favors for showers or birthday parties, stocking stuffers or any number of holidays.

The best part was that since the jars are so small, I was able to decorate them using only leftover scraps of paper and embellishments, so it's a totally recycled project!

The line-up:

More details:
This jar was made with some leftover pink rice paper. I cut out the flower branch from a piece of old scrapbook paper and glued it all on the jar with Mod Podge. Filled with cinnamon candy hearts.

For the spunky love in your life. Ingredients: leftover paper and ribbon. Oh, and conversation hearts and Nerds.

Floral vellum-themed jars. These were made with a $1 package of die-cut flowers, leftover stickers and twine. Easy!
