Romance is wonderful for Valentine's Day but I'm also a fan of décor and doodads that are just plain cute and this super easy craft is just that....cute! I used a Cricut to make it but I have seen adorable stickers at Dollar Tree, Target, Hobby Lobby and all the other crafty stores that would work just as well.
This gift or décor jar takes less than 20 minutes to make and it's part of this month's Thrifty Style Team! Once you've finished reading this post be sure to head to the bottom to see all of the other projects from the team as well as links to visit their beautiful thrifty inspiration.
- glass container with lid or old jar lid
- red sequins
- battery operated candle
- red vinyl
I shared this project in Cricut Design Space and you can get all the details here. You'll want to cut out your design and move on to the next step. Alternatively, get your stickers ready and let's move forward!
Place the designs around the jar leaving room at the top to add the sequins.
Glue sequins around the top of the jar with a hot glue gun or your favorite glue.
Add another sticker to the lid. I loved this bold LOVE one and it's in the free design that I shared here.
Next, add whatever you want to the jar. Candy is my first choice but I had a few too many cookies over Christmas so fake snow and a battery operated candle it is!
And, display or give as a cute but inexpensive gift!
Hint: Prep your jar or glass container by washing it first to make sure there is nothing oily on it. I also like to quickly go over it with a cotton ball soaked in alcohol so that I get a good adhesion of my 'stickers' and any other ephemera I add to my projects.
