I have another super duper quick and easy Valentine's Day decor idea for you. And there's only 3 steps involved.
Valentine's Day Decor Jar
- Anchor Hocking cracker jar (can be found at Walmart, Amazon or most craft stores)
- Cinnamon hearts
- Vintage Valentine image
- Take a jar.
- Put a bag of cinnamon hearts in the bottom.
- Plop in a copy of a vintage Valentine postcard.
Instant red hot romance. OK, that might be going a bit far. Instant vignette, at least.
The image I used is from the Graphics Fairy. Just print it out on card stock paper and you have an instant "vintage" Valentine to decorate with.
And the great part of this decor idea is that the red hot hearts hold the valentine up. Sort of like little sandbags.
You could substitute Valentine M&M's for the jar, but those are too much of a temptation to me. You gotta use a candy that you don't love more than life itself or you're just asking for it to be refilled constantly.
BTW, this is the same jar I used in December for a snowy scene.
I'm already searching for pint sized leprechauns for St. Patty's Day.
Another Valentine's Day craft you might enjoy is my Thrifty And Super Easy Valentine's Day Garland

I "love" it!!!....and really love the hobnail planter!
this is so cute! I have a bit of an obsession with jars so i'm always looking for cute little waysto decorate with them!
Adorable...agree, I'm thinking of "banning" M&M's at my house...especially the peanut butter ones. Dangerous!!
I love this jar idea. I can think of a million fun scenes I can create. Thank you!
New to your blog and wonder where you got the jar or what size it is I really love the idea of changing it out for different seasons/holidays
They sell them at Walmart in the food storage area (where they have canisters for your counter) and I've seen them at Hobby Lobby also. And oddly enough I saw some in the dollar bins at Target the other day, except they were much smaller. Hope you can find them, they come in handy!
Hi Pam! I was super excited to go back and find this post on my Valentine Pinterest board, knowing that I had everything I needed to complete it -- even the very same jar! I didn't have the jar out for 24 hours before I found my husband reaching for a snack! I was dumbfounded. The cinnamon candies aren't really a temptation for me... guess I thought they wouldn't be for anyone else either. *wrong. Still loved the idea, but may need to rework it a little since we can't seem to walk by candy around here. LOL
