Today, I’m bringing you a very simple and easy DIY project for you for Valentine’s Day. Thanks to my youngest daughter Lily reminding me that Valentine’s Day is only WEEKS away. You would think I was paying her to say it. Lol! So, I wanted to bring you something that was simple, fun, and easy to make. Here’s how to make this Easy DIY Valentine’s Day Votive.
Here’s What You Need:
- Mason Jar
- Heart Stickers
- Pink Spray Paint (Matte Finish)
- Clear Spray Paint (Matte Finish)
- Ribbon, Trim, Scrapbook Pieces (Kaiser Craft) For Embellishment (Optional)
- Tea Light Candle
Step 1: Apply the heart stickers to the Mason Jar.
Step 2: Spray paint the jar and let dry.
Step 3: Very carefully and slowly peel off the heart stickers. If the spray paint happens to become scratched off before you seal it, take the spray paint and apply it to a paint brush and touch up the spot. When taking off the stickers, I found it was easiest to remove them from starting at the bottom and peeling them in a clockwise motion. That way it wouldn’t peel off any excess paint.
Step 4: Seal with the clear spray paint and let dry.
Step 5: Add ribbon or trim. You could even attach a love note!
I love how this turned out! If you have a special loved one that you would like to give a gift to, this would be just perfect. Or teacher’s would just melt, if they were to receive one. Just saying since I’m a teacher. 😉
I love how this votive just radiates warmth and love.
Give your special Valentine something the will cherish and keep for a long time without spending hours laboring over the gift!
