DIY Valentine in a Bottle

I can't believe it's Friday! and...Valentine's Day is so close!
I promised many of you a step by step on how to make these Valentines in a bottle..but, alas, I have run out of time!

so...I'll give you the condensed version!

For the basics of the little wonderland making...you can refer to the little tutorial I did HERE on how to fill the Christmas jars 

& HERE are the Spring jars....obviously, you can take these steps & use them for Valentine's Day.

Supplies to Do-it-Yourself:
mason jar
pink spray paint
flowers

 Steps to Do-it-Yourself:
Steps:
1. Gather supplies. Spray paint the lids & tops of your bottles.


2. Right ON the jar lid, hot glue your treasures. Here, I put pink & white silk flowers on the bottom & glued them to the jar lid. *TIP: make sure they don't spill over the edge of the jar lid, or it's difficult to close the jar.

3. Now, create your mini banners, adhere to sticks/pins & glue them in between the flowers.  *TIP: be sure to measure & have different heights so it will look fab in the jar.

4. After you've got your little treasures glued onto the lid, put the lid together & turn upside down....& screw the lid on. 

5. Turn back upside down, & add the mini banner 'i love you'. To make, simply hand write on a piece of vintage paper, fold & cut & glue.

6. Add the teeny tiny bunting with papers from the Remarkable Valentine Background kit on some fab Divine Twine & glue right to the bottle.
7.  Since, the inside says: 'You're the bee's knees'...I tied a little bee charm on the end...
so cute!

8. Top off the jar with a little mini cupid painted pink & you've bottled up your message!
Hope you enjoy this fun project...Happy lover's weekend! I plan on having a wonderful time with my family!
