DIY Heart Mason Jar {Valentine Craft}

Raise your hand if you love mason jar projects! I’m pretty excited about this one because it came out so cute! I was trying to think of a new and easy valentine craft I could make, and this DIY Heart Mason Jar is what came to mind…

Valentine Mason Jar

That’s pretty cute don’t you think? And the best part is that it’s original! And if there is another one like it I don’t want to know about it so don’t tell me. :)

And it couldn’t be any easier to make this. I started out with one of my aqua mason jars (I have tons), and just stuck on my heart shaped stickers.

Aqua Mason Jar

I used this kind from Michael’s.

Heart Sticker

I think it is kind of important to use those plastic stickers instead of foam ones, and definitely not paper ones.  These plastic ones will peel off without peeling the paint off.

Then I just took it outside and spray painted in some gloss white paint.

Painted Mason Jar

Now one thing about this part. Make sure before you paint that you stick on the hearts VERY good. I pressed mine hard, but I should have done it a bit harder. The day I spray painted it was about 80 degrees outside (crazy Texas winter) so when I took my jar outside, some of my stickers peeled up from the sides because of the humidity. I should have done this on a dry day, but it just didn’t occur to me. And even if I had occurred to me, I probably would have done it anyway because I am that impatient. :)

So with that, it left me with a bit of overspray when I peeled up some of the hearts.

Not a huge issue and if you’re patient you can just scrape off that overspray with your finger. I did that on a few. I peeled up my stickers when the jar was dry to the touch so I could handle the jar, but the paint was not totally dry or anything. Just be careful and take your time when you peel them up. :)

I bought the cute paper straws from Michael’s. And we are having a Valentine-ish baby shower for my sister in law in a few weeks, and so this is what I will serve the straws in. :)

This is what the “Ball” side of the jar looks like and I love it too.

And remember you can use whatever color of paint you want for this! I chose white because I wanted to be able to use it year round for things and not limit myself to pink or red.

Whatcha think? There are SO many great uses for mason jars. I just love them and decorate with them all the time. I hope you aren’t sick of seeing them. :)  You can check out my DIY Aqua Mason Jar Vase here, and my Mason Jar Soap Dispenser here for other ideas.

What crafts have you done for Valentine’s Day? Is something you think you might try? Stick some flowers in this one too and it would be super cute! Sharing this post at My Blessed Life’s Valentine Party and Sarah’s Before and After Party.

  1. I love mason jars too. This turned out really really cute. Love those heart straws too. Very cute!

  2. Super cute!

  3. Adorable! I have a couple of mason jars I found hanging out at Dollar Tree, wondering what to do with them. I love this idea!

  4. Cute !! I used to do this with household jars
    (pasta sauce, olive jars etc) after they were emptied,
    (clean -of course )made designs w/masking tape and sprayed w/fleck stone paint.
    But I like your smooth finish look.

  5. Super cute project! I love it! Have a wonderful week! Angie xo

  6. Adorable!!! This gives me so many great ideas and I have a ton of glass jars. I horde glass jars and empty toilet paper rolls! Lol

  7. So cute Emily! I love how it looks with the straws in it. I wonder how long it will be before we see them popping up all over Pinterest. :) Way to be the first to come up with it (at least that I’ve seen.)

  9. It looks very cute…but I also am liking the jar with the painted hearts still on it! Maybe a combination of both would be cool?

  10. Nicole Stone says:

    Oh, I love this. And I think I will do mine in red, since that is the accent color in my kitchen/family room. Maybe I’ll use it to put some flowers in :)

  11. Gina Aytman says:

    So cute! I collect Mason jars, too and different jelly jars, I live the hearts and white paint on this! I’m not tired of the Mason jar ideas!

  12. Love this idea! I will need to do something like this over the weekend with my daughter! I think that she will love putting the stickers on!

    Thanks for sharing!

  13. Oh, I love this! It turned out great! I wish I had some paint to make me some!

  14. I love this idea! I love finding Mason jars at Goodwill for next to nothing. I stash them away for the perfect projects! Thanks for the wonderful idea! I think this would be cute for spring as well…you could use flower stickers, or Easter and use chick and egg stickers…The possibilities are endless! Thanks again!

  15. I just found this on Pinterest and it is so stinking cute!

  16. This is so cute! I especially love that it’s a really simple craft that only requires basic supplies, and the fact that it doesn’t even have to be hearts on the jar. It’s such an easy way to make your own one-of-a-kind mason jar. :)

  17. I like it with the white hearts still on too. :)

  18. Jessica N. says:

    This is flippin’ ADORABLE!!!!! ♥ ♥ ♥ Pinned and going to make this week! Thanks so much for sharing!! :)

  19. Amazing, congrats!! I use mine to serve drinks in, but this idea is super cute, I will def try it out. I have to say, I even liked it with the stickers on, it seems so 3D and touchable. Could the stickers last without peeling them? I wonder..maybe I’ll try that, too.

  20. I don’t even know the way I finished up right here, but I thought
    this post was great. I don’t recognize who you might be
    but definitely you’re going to a well-known blogger in the event you
    aren’t already. Cheers!
