Dollar Store Valentine Jars!


Love is in the air! And since I was feeling crafty today, I decided to do a little Valentine’s Day project- dollar store style! If you don’t already shop at the dollar store for pretty much all of your holiday supplies, I suggest you start now. They actually have some really fun stuff, and a surprisingly wide variety. 

So, I set out to my local Dollar Tree to gather all the materials needed for… candy filled valentine jars!

Dollar Store Valentine Jars

These are so so SO easy, guys! And again, everything can be found at Dollar Tree. 

What you’ll need:

  • Glass jars (my Dollar Tree had some really cute ones that looked like little milk jars) You can also find some super cute ones on Amazon!
  • Candy of your choice
  • Cupcake cups
  • Baker’s twine
  • Rhinestone heart stickers (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Tags (I couldn’t find any at my Dollar Tree, so I made some at home using materials I already had)
  • Hole punch for the tags
  • Small rubber bands- the tinier the better!


Simply fill the jars with candy, add a tag if you’d like, and then tie down the cupcake cup on top with the baker’s twine! Tip: use the rubber bands to secure the cup in place while you tie the twine on. If they show, you can just cut them off afterward. 🙂

The end result: a super cute, cheap, and thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift for your loved ones! 

Fabulously Frugal Tip: Have any old baby food jars at home? Use them instead of buying new jars and save yourself some money. 🙂

  1. I literally made these today with stuff I had on hand *HINT* My mom drinks a lot of Starbucks Frappucino! So I used those bottles. Thanks so much for the idea. I’m making them for the school bake sale

    1. Hi Debbi! The small rubber bands are optional to hold the cupcake liners in place so you can tie them with twine/ribbon etc. Hope this helps! 🙂
