Do you save jars to repurpose? Sometimes the jars are just too cute to toss into the recycle bin – like these little mason jars from Classico Pesto. I’ve had these for a while and thought they would be perfect to use for these Vintage-Look Valentine Treat Jars.
You’ll need jars, chalk-finish paint, antiquing wax, 1-inch wood hearts, and red/white bakers twine.

I used DecoArt Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint in Everlasting White and Romance. I also used Home Decor Chalk Paint in Prominent Pink. Here are 1-inch wood hearts similar to what I used and the red/white bakers twine. I also used Home Decor Antiquing Wax that I forgot to add to the picture.
First, remove any labels from the jar and thoroughly wash and dry. Apply a thin layer of chalk paint to the jar using a foam brush. Let dry completely and then apply a second coat of paint. Let dry. Brush the jar with the antiquing wax, being sure to get into all the nooks and crannies. Wipe excess wax off with a paper towel. Let dry.
Paint the hearts with 2 coats of chalk paint, letting dry between coats. Apply antiquing wax and wipe off excess with a paper towel. Let dry.
Wrap a length of twine several times around the top of the jar and tie in a knot. Glue the painted heart over the knot.
Fill a treat bag with yummy chocolate hearts and kisses and place in the jar for a sweet Valentine! ❤️🤍💗
These would also be a cute addition to your Valentine Decor. 😍
Happy Valentine’s Day!
