Valentine’s Day is a bit of a non-holiday in our family, but as you know we love to make tissue paper covered glass jars for pretty much any holiday and season, so I thought it would be fun to make a Valentine’s Day themed one, maybe we can start to celebrate it,too.
We made these quick,sweet lanterns this morning and it really helped us get in the mood, so I imagine there will be a few more Valentine’s Day themed crafts to share in the next few days.
Valentine’s Day Lanterns
You will need:
Tissue paper in lovely colours (we picked red,purple and pink)
A glass jar
A mix of 1 part white glue & 2 parts whater
String or wool (optional)
Draw heart shapes onto the tissue paper.
Cut out the shapes , older children can do this themselves!
Cover your whole glass jar with the glue & water mix.
Stick on the heart shapes.
We started with big hearts and filled in the empty spaces with little hearts.
When the whole jar is covered brush more glue & water mix over the whole jar and sprinkle on glitter. Our glitter was purple and silver.
Tie string,wool or ribbon around the top of the jar.
You can add beads to the string or tie a bow if you like.
Now all you have to do is let it dry and put a tealight into the jar.
Happy Valentine’s crafting!
