DIY Valentine’s Day Mason Jar Decor

Okay Guys, with Valentine’s Day right around the corner I’ve tried to get the stuff you need out there sooner rather than later. I recently posted a pretty nifty gift guide for your special someone that included men’s gifts as well as gifts for women. Now I’m doing a super-duper easy and adorable DIY Valentine’s Day Mason Jar craft to make your home look and feel like love is in the air.


Along with this easy DIY, I’ll be showing you guys my decorated Valentine’s mantle. This is actually the very first year I’ve ever decorated my mantle for Valentine’s Day. But I thought, why not? I have really come to enjoy decorating for basically every holiday of the year. I got so much amazing clearance from Pier1 Imports last year and now have bins FULL of Easter decor. Cannot wait to decorate for that one!

But before we get to the mantle, let’s start with our DIY mason jar craft, shall we?

Here’s what you’ll need..


-3 Mason Jars. I got my 2-pack’s from Target for $3. They had clear and red ones. Great selection. You can find them pretty cheap everywhere now days.

-Festive String. You don’t need a whole lot of this, just enough to wrap around the jars a few times.


-Felt Hearts. I got a 6-pack in the dollar spot for, you guessed it, $1. It came with 3 different shades- red, pink, and hot pink.

-Festive Filler. I love the filler I got from Hobby Lobby. It can be used for Christmas OR Valentine’s 🙂 Only $4 for a huge bag of it! You can go with any filler here. Little hearts would be cute too..


Now that we have our supplies we can start to assemble. We start by placing the felt hearts on the jars. I DO NOT hot glue them on, only because I like to reuse my jars. It would be very easy to glue them on if you want to keep these just for Valentine’s Day though.

We then wrap the string around the jars a few times to hold the hearts in place. Simply tie a knot on the back to secure in place. Once you have the heart and string in place, we can add the filler, and voila! Super cute mason jars ready for Valentine’s Day!


So I thought I’d share with you guys how this year I’ve been trying to focus a little more on what makes my heart happy. Loving my hubby is one of my main focuses, and I am always looking for little things to do for him that he might enjoy. I incorporated older pics of us when we were still dating into my mantle to bring back some sweet memories of him and I as well.

Now for the mantle reveal! Hehe, I love how it turned out..

At first I was only going to go with only reds. But once I added in some pinks, I think it really gave it just the right touch.


What do you think? Do you decorate your mantle religiously like I do? Lol, share below! And please feel free to Pin this to Pinterest! OH and don’t forget to vote for me on Top Mommy Blogs.
