DIY Vintage Valentine Candy Jar

Whew! Happy NEW week! I need a fresh new start. Last week was no fun!

This little jar is an easy quick gift idea for teachers, neighbors, co-workers....etc. All you need is a Mason jar (any glass jar will do), snacks (nuts, pretzels, M&Ms, popcorn), paper scraps, lace paper doilie (heart), ribbon, baker's twine & a cute tag.

First, I glued the doilie to the jar. Added some ribbon. Then, I cut 3 hearts from paper scraps (fold in half and sew through the middle), Last, I looped a small tag through some baker's twine and wrapped the twine around the jar. Sounds SUPER EASY right?
If you feel like you need more, add some vintage lace around the lid. Have fun!! How is your Sunday going? Do you have a 3 day weekend?

xoxo, Veronica

I found this on pinterest & wanted to look at it,cute idea! What I really wanted to tell you though, is that the pinterest link stopped me & said it had been reported as a suspicious link' & gave me the option to continue, or quit. I continued & I don't see what the problem is, the link goes directly to what is posted on pinterest. So I thought I'd let you know pinterest is re-directing people way for something someone reported, because it won't let anyone pin it either when it does this! I think there's a way for you to contact them to stop it. Here's the pinterest link I clicked on:http://pinterest.com/pin/227150374927343486/
