Heart Cut Out Mason Jar Votive – Easy Valentine Craft with Mason Jars, Scrapbook Paper.
It’s hard to imagine a time when I didn’t have a Valentine.
Oh, who am I kidding! Who could ever forget all those Valentine-less years in middle school. And high school. And college. And the majority of my twenties.
Those Valentine-less scars run deep!
Who could forget being assaulted with all things red and pink and hearts and flowers and chocolates in heart-shaped boxes from mid-January through mid-February. Seriously, you couldn’t swing a dead cat without being reminded that, once again, you would be spending Valentine’s Day — and night — alone.
What’s really hard to imagine is that in four years time I’ll be at a half-way point where I’ve had equal Valentine-less and Valentine-full years …
My middle-school-high-school-college-twenties self could never have imagined that a life with more Valentines-full days than -less could ever exist for my sad-sack-loveless self!
And while this mason jar craft certainly features hearts, it doesn’t mean it’s just for the Valentine-full. The Valentine-less can certainly enjoy a little mason jar candlelight as they enjoy a Hallmark movie. Or perhaps something from the incomparable Nancy Meyers. 🙂
