Simple Valentine’s Day Jar Lanterns

If you are looking for a simple gift for Valentine’s Day, look no further!  I’ve got it right here for you!  These jars can be filled with candy, or turned into a lantern by adding a tealight.  You can make them so quickly, that everyone you know will be getting one for Valentine’s Day this year.  I know of several teachers that will be receiving them!


I bought these key embellishments at Michael’s Crafts.  They were in a pack of 6 for $1.50, and they had slightly larger ones in a 4 pack for $1.50.  I couldn’t help myself!

I used marinara sauce jars, so there was no added expense, but you could purchase mason jars at any craft store or hardware store.  To cover the jars, I used burlap ribbon, jute, or a red wool ribbon.  Wrap the jar and glue the ends with a quick dry Tacky glue.


I then used a contrasting color of a thinner jute to add color.  I tied knots under the chalkboard heart I purchased at Michael’s and the key.  On the chalkboard heart, I wrote “love” with a chalk marker.

On some of the jars with red ribbon, I added an adhesive heart embellishment that I purchased at Michael’s.  These came in a 9 pack for around $5.


My daughters have male principals at their schools, so I created a few that were a bit more masculine, using burlap ribbon, jute and a key.  I left out the “love heart” on these.

Happy jarring…
