Love-ly Valentines Day Candle Holders


The countdown to Valentines Day is on!
While we don’t go overboard for this day, it is important to us to recognize it!  But we keep it simple.
I like to put out a few Valentines inspired decorations, because in the dead of winter,
bright pretty colours are necessary!
And really, who can pass up a little love?
So I promised you an easy, inexpensive, but love-ly Valentines Day project!
And best of all, this one uses mason jars…
…yes, yes…I know…I have a mason jar disorder,
it’s just that they can be used for SO many things that I have to love them!
So first this…


I can’t resist these Ryan Gosling pictures that are everywhere,
so I just had to make this…bahahahaha!


Anyway, where was I?  Oh yes.  I made something.


I was inspired by this clear Valentines tape that I found at the grocery store of all places!
I thought strips of this tape would look so pretty on glass.


What I used:
mason jars
pretty clear patterned tape
red & pink plastic hearts for glass filler (I found these at Target last year)
tea lights

  • I wrapped a strip of the tape around the lip of the mason jar.
  • Added the hearts, then the candle, and voila!  You have a litte romance!


  • As glass filler you could use cinnamon hearts, conversation heart candies or salt.
  • If you can’t find tape, wrap your jars with red & white bakers twine or pretty ribbon.


Easy peasy and SO pretty!



All lit up!



Love is in the air!
