These Valentine’s Day DIY Candy Jars Made From old pots and glass bowls are so fun and festive. If you don’t have any old terra cotta pots or glass bowls, we found ours at one of our favorite thrift store, Goodwill of Orange County. See how easy it is to repurpose common thrift store finds into decor, using just a few inexpensive embellishments.
See how easy it is to repurpose common Goodwill finds into decor, using just a few inexpensive embellishments. Fill them up with your favorite Valentine’s Day candy and group several of them together for maximum impact. You may want to make a few to give away as gifts.
First paint or spray paint the pots and the wooden balls. You may need more than one coat if the plant pots are porous. We used white acrylic paint for the wooden balls.
Choose your foam hearts and layer a few of them. We liked a combination of colors and sizes.
Glue the hearts to your pots, once the paint is dry.
Use an Acrylic Paint Pen to make dots all around the pot or heart shaped designs if you prefer.
Place a stream of hot glue around the rim of the pot.
Hot glue the glass bowls to the painted pots.
Hot glue the flat side of the wooden ball to the Terra Cotta pot.
Place your favorite candy in the glass bowls.
And then cover the glass bowl with the painted pot base.
Now, stand back and admire your handcrafted Valentine’s Day decor!
