This is such a fun little craft for anyone who wants to do something special on Valentine’s day on a budget! My girls and I are going to make these in a few weeks for neighbors! I thought I would share them now so you can start preparing too! Valentine M&Ms in a Jar are fun and pretty!

Starting out is easy. You just need a few things.

I ordered my wide mouth mason jars online and they should be here in no time! I also ordered a pack of Valentine ribbon so that all of my jars have a different tie! How fun is that?

I also ordered the round stick on labels for the Happy Valentine’s Day stickers for the top of the jars. And to make my life even easier, I also went ahead and ordered the Valentine’s M&Ms too!

Everything will come to my door and I will be set to create these fun jars in no time. I just need to make sure my red ink is ready on my computer for the labels!

Be sure to wash the jars before you fill them with M&Ms. Make sure they are completely dry as well! M&Ms sticking to the sides will be hard when the giftee goes to open these!
