Animal Jar Valentines // made with love

by Ashley Weeks Cart

I’m pretty dang pleased with this DIY, if I do say so myself. I made a series of Animal Jar Valentines, filled with Hershey’s kisses and M&Ms to give to friends and my coworkers on Tuesday. They are highly adorable, no?

You can use old glass peanut butter or jam jars. Or for a smaller option, baby food jars would be perfect. You can also go out and purchase small jars like I had to. I found these little ones at Michael’s and used mason jars for the larger option.

Sunny proved to be an expert jar filler. Only occasionally sneaking treats for herself.

James and I had fun brainstorming punny tags to accompany each jar. I bet you can guess what he recommended I use for the Pig (i.e. pork) jars. I reminded him that that might not be so appropriate for my coworkers to receive. So we went with “Be Swine” instead.

These would make adorable party favors, too. I imagine that I’ll be doing this little project again in the not so distant future.
