Conversation hearts are far from my favorite Valentine’s candy, but they are kind of iconic. Instead of breaking a tooth on one of these not-so-tasty treats, take advantage of their color and shape by using them to decorate instead. I made this cute candy heart mason jar with a couple of bags of candy from the dollar store.

This short video shows you how to make your own candy heart mason jar. If you aren’t subscribed to my YouTube channel, you are missing out on lots of fun! I put out two new creative videos every week. Hop over and check it out!
HOW TO USE THE VALENTINE’S DAY MASON JAR
I plopped a votive candle in my finished jar, but you could also use the jar to hold a special gift or as a vase. If you use the jar as a vase for fresh flowers, be careful not to spill any water on the candies because they will eventually disintegrate.
Ooh! Such a cute idea – I have never been a fan of the chalky conversation hearts candy’s taste, but this way you still get to enjoy the cuteness of them without having to eat it!
This would be ADORABLE in an elementary school teacher’s room.
