I have always felt that January was the middle month, separating two of the best parts of winter: Christmas and Valentine’s Day. Though the Christmas festivities are long over, we can now begin building excitement for the next holiday in line. Even if you don’t have a significant other this Valentine’s Day, that doesn’t mean you can’t embrace the Hallmark-created day of love. The best way to show someone you care about them is through a good old-fashioned DIY present.
That’s why this Cupcake Mini-Mason Candy Jar, created by Christina Dawes on The Daily Sugar, is a perfect project to take on right before Valentine’s Day. Christina takes you step by step through this easy, adorable creation. It’d be a perfect gift for a sibling, best friend or (if there are any guys out there brave enough to try this) a girlfriend. All you’ll need is a mini mason jar, caulk, beads, a red bell and candy to put inside.
