Dollar Store Mason Jar Valentine Craft

Dollar Store Mason Jar Valentine Craft

Make this cute mason jar Valentine craft using dollar store supplies. It costs less than $7 to make and only takes 30 minutes so it’s a cheap & easy Valentine’s Day decoration. This craft would make a great centerpiece for a romantic dinner or a festive mantel decoration.

All of the supplies for this craft project came from Dollar Tree except the paint and scrabble tiles which I got half off with a coupon at Hobby Lobby.  However, you can find a scrabble game at a thrift store for around a dollar or two and save some money. Plus, you’d have lots of other scrabble letters leftover for more crafts!

There’s a lot of room to get creative with this project and make it your own. You could use white chalk paint on the mason jars and use regular burlap and twine for a farmhouse styled Valentine’s Day decoration or make it rustic by using a dark red chalk paint on the jars and giving it an aged with sandpaper and coming it with natural burlap and twine. You could substitute the scrabble tiles for stencils or Cricut letters.

Store heart-shaped candies or chocolates inside (assuming you don’t paint the inside of the mason jars like I did). Also, you could add a Valentine’s Day bouquet of flowers and festive vase filler.  This heartfelt Valentine’s Day decoration will show off your romantic side without spending too much on the holiday.

Cost $7


  • glue gun
  • glue sticks
  • fabric scissors


  • 4 craft mason jars
  • twine red
  • burlap ribbon red
  • acrylic paint pink
  • scrabble tiles


  • Paint your mason jars pink. I poured paint on the inside of the jars and shook the jars around to fully coat them in order to achieve a glossy finish look, but you can paint them however you like.
  • Cut 2 to 3 inch long section of red burlap ribbon (or however big you want your heart to be). Make the ribbon into a heart shape by folding the section in half and using a printed heart template folded in half as a guide, then cut out the shape. Repeat 3 more times.
  • Glue the burlap hearts to the front of your mason jars.
  • Add a scrabble tile in the center of each of your hearts by gluing it in place
  • Glue the end of a piece of twine around the back of the mason jar and tightly wrap it around the lid until there's no more room left and glue the other end to the back of the jar.
