Create a ‘Made with Love’ Blooming Candy Jar. An easy and affordable gift and way to share some love with a friend, co-worker or teacher for Valentine’s Day!
Valentine’s Day is just a few days away, the perfect excuse to celebrate with candy and flowers!
A brand new Dollar Tree opened nearby a couple of weeks ago. It’s always fun to shop in a new store, when everything is fully stocked and tidy! I found Made with Love Mason Jars there, a perfect vessel for creating a Blooming Candy Vase for Valentine’s Day!
In addition to the Made with Love Jar, I used a small bud vase that I had. You could use any vase or glass that’s small enough to nest inside the jar.
Use the candy of your choice to fill between the walls of your vase and jar. I used Valentine M&M’s.
I placed a plastic grocery bag inside the inner vase, to keep it candy-free while filling the vase. . .
Remove the bag after the jar is filled with candy and add your water and flowers.
I used some alstroemeria and mini pink carnations from the grocery store, both long-lasting blooms. Tie some ribbon around your jar and your Blooming Candy Jar is ready to give to a friend, co-worker or teacher!
Tip: Fill your inner vase only 1/2 – 2/3 full with water for so it won’t slosh or spill on the candy during transportation. The inner vase can be easily removed and candy enjoyed when your flowers are spent.
Your candy bouquet is still ‘made with love’ even if you can’t find this jar or don’t have a Dollar Tree near you! Use any mason jar and customize this blooming candy bouquet for your occasion or holiday as a sweet and easy gift.
♥ Happy Valentine’s Day ♥
