How to make baby food jar Valentines
1. Clean the baby food jars
You'll want to make sure your baby food jars are super clean. No one wants to find specks of sweet potatoes mixed in their Valentine's Day treats, do they?
Grab a bunch of your baby food jars and throw them into the dishwasher for a nice, good, hot bath. Or soak them in the sink.
Once they are clean, let them dry completely.
Tip: This step can be done will in advance!
2. Fill the jar with candy
Grab your favorite Valentine's Day candy and pour it in the baby food jar.
Since your jar is not huge, I recommend using smaller candy such as M&Ms, mini chocolates, heart-shaped gummies, or other smaller candy.
And again, before you fill, make sure the baby food jars are completely dry. You don't want any moisture getting on the candy!
Tip: If you want a non-candy option, fill the jar with little slips of paper of why you love that person!
3. Attach the lid and put on cupcake paper
Secure the lid in place. Then place a glue dot or piece of double-sided tape to secure the cupcake paper to the top of the baby food jar lid.
4. Add baker's twine
Finish off these cute and simple Valentines with a piece of baker's twine.
