Plus, she had a lot of fun making it! And if she doesn’t get candy.. she can use it for her Valentine’s! Cute!
Here’s how to make this:
clean, empty jar
embellishments (felt, buttons, gems, stickers, etc)
*Note: With this craft, you’ll need a lot of parental help since you’re using sharp scissors and hot glue. My daughter enjoyed choosing the colors, fabric, embellishments and ribbon herself and she did tell me where and how she wanted it to look. If you’re wanting your craft more kid friendly, feel free to use white glue. We chose hot glue only because she wanted to use it right away and wanted it a little sturdier.
Start off by measuring around the jar and cutting off the excess.
Hot glue it on (obviously, you’ll have to assist with this part).
Get your ribbon out. Measure around the jar and add extra for a bow.
Hot glue the piece around the top of the fabric, leaving excess on each end to tie a bow.
Pick out your embellishments, she chose red buttons and red felt heart stickers.
Next, trace the lid on a piece of felt and cut out.
Glue it onto the top.
Now decorate your jar however you like.
Pretty red, pink and white! So perfect for Valentine’s Day. Love her choices!!
Now you can fill it with whatever you like.
For now, she gets to stuff a few leftover candies from Christmas.
