I've been wanting to create a Valentine's Day Countdown for a while and recently I pulled ALL of my crafting stash out to see what I need to get rid of and realized, I have more than 25 bottles saved, just waiting to be used. They are a variety, Starbucks Mocha Frapaccino jars, salsa jars, spaghetti jars, mason jars etc.
So I decided to "dye" them pink. Here's a link for a tutorial. However, this tutorial is not waterproof, so it cannot be used for vases that would have water in them. I never perefected the technique. So mine turned out more streaky.
I have to say, I think my beginning jars turned out better. I used less food coloring and a thinner coating. My jars are by no means perfect. But they are pink!
Then I added washi tape and ribbon to embellish them.
I set them on a tray that I've had for a while. I had used it at Sophia's 3rd birthday party.
So there are 14 jars filled with candy (next time I'll just do 1 or 2 pieces per jar). And each day Sophia gets to pick a jar to "eat".
And we count down to Valentine's Day. She LOVES it so far!!!!!
Who wouldn't love chocolate each day?????
