By:

These Cute as a Button Valentine's Day Jars from Laura Kelly are so fun to make with your kids.  Perfect for filling with candy, candles, or little love notes, these thrifty projects are a great way to share some sweetness with your Valentine.  These are even simple enough to make in the classroom and make great Valentine's for kids to share with their friends and classmates.  A collection of random sized jars would also make a great homemade Valentine's Day decoration that you can display on our bay window or your mantel.

Materials:

  • Craft paints
  • Glass jars
  • Red and pink buttons
  • Jewelry wire
  • Glue
  • Paint brushes
  • Candies, notes, or other little items to fill the jars

 

Instructions:

  1. Using craft paints (I used Glass Gallery and Apple Barrel-both from Plaid), paint some hearts and polka dots onto the glass.
     
  2. While the paint is drying (Gallery Glass takes a while), wrap some red and pink buttons up in wire to create handles for the jars.  When the paint is dry you can add another layer of paint decor then add red and pink buttons to the jars with Aleene’s Tacky Glue.
     
  3. Let the jars dry completely before handling them to add the button wire.  Twist the wires around the jar rims in whatever way you like.  I made an extra one to decorate a wine bottle!
     
  4. THEN, fill the jars up with candy goodies and you are all set to lay out a SWEET Valentine display of love!
