I was poking through the Dollar Deals bins at Target one night after work (dangerous!) when I spotted the cutest pink hobnail glasses on the shelves and knew I had to use them for something!
With three of them added to my cart, I continued through the bins and came upon the Valentine’s Day section, where I spotted glittery wine glass charms, colorful yarn, and the cutest metallic print tissue paper. I put them all together in my mind and came up with these frilly, pink, festive candy jars.
I tend to think of Valentine's Day as less of a romantic holiday and more as a day to spread love to the many amazing people in my life. I’m leaving these candy jar treats as a special surprise on my coworkers’ desks, hopefully to make their Tuesday a little bit sweeter!
Each candy jar costs about $6 to make, and my favorite part is that after the candy is gone, the wine charm and the hobnail glass can both be reused for other purposes (I kept a glass for myself and use it as a pencil cup on my desk - so cute!). This little project was so simple – it only took about 20 minutes total to put together - and no mess involved!
I’m sure you could do the same with a large coffee mug, votive holder or even a beer glass if you preferred. It would even be an easy project for children to make for their teachers or babysitters.
If you feel inspired and decide to create your own candy jar gift, I would love to see! Happy Valentine’s Day! Keep spreading the love and cuteness! Xoxo
