Valentine's Day Votive

Yes, it's Valentine's Day season. Whether you have a significant other or are riding solo this Valentine's Day, add some love flair to your home or apartment with this cute Valentine's Day votive. This DIY tutorial comes from the creative people at Made From Pinterest and Artzy Creations.


For this project, you will need:
-- Mason jar
-- Heart stickers
-- Sponge brush
-- Pink spray paint (matte finish)
-- Clear sealant (matte finish)
-- Ribbons and other details to add when finished
You can find all of these items at a craft store.

Stick on the heart stickers

Take the heart stickers and place them all over the mason jar, as shown in the picture above.

Paint the jar

Use the pink spray paint and paint all of the jar. You may need to do a few coats to get a truly opaque color. Then, paint a layer of clear paint over the jar to seal the color. Then, remove the heart stickers from the jar and add ribbon and detailing to the rim.

Place a lit candle inside the jar and enjoy your Valentine's Day votive!
