How to Make a Valentine’s Day Vase

Some links below may be affiliate links which means you do not pay anymore.
- Smooth sided mason jar (quart size)
- Hazel and Ruby Stencil Masks
- Pink spray paint
- Craft knife
- Silver Paint Pen
Start by watching the video below to see just how to make this mason jar vase for Valentine’s day! Don’t worry if you miss any of the steps. I have step-by-step instructions below.
Be sure to check out the other projects featured in the video at the links below.
Now if you were unable to watch the video or you missed some of the instructions, here are the steps:
First, start with a clean and smooth-sided mason jar. The smooth sides work best for this technique. A mason jar with a raised design on the outside will work for this project, but it may not turn out as well.
Next, apply the stencil masks to the outside of the jar and rub well to adhere. Leave the masks on the jar for the next step.
Spray paint the outside of the jar. Be sure to get around the edges of the jar, too. I found it was best to turn the jar upside down to spray paint to avoid getting paint on the inside. Allow it to dry completely before continuing.
Remove the masks with a craft knife. Then, use a paint pen to outline the letters. Allow it to dry completely before adding the flowers and water.
This idea is perfect for your Valentine’s Day decor and only takes minutes to make. Make your own mason jar vase for Valentine’s Day! This project would even work for a gift in a jar if you want to add in something for that someone special!

- Start with a clean smooth sided mason jar.
- Next, apply the stencil masks to the out side of the jar and rub well to adhere. Leave the masks on the jar for the next step.
- Spray paint to cover the entire jar and allow to dry. I found it was best to turn the jar upside down to spray paint to protect the inside of the jar. You don’t want to get spray paint on the inside of the jar. Allow it to dry completely before continuing.

- Use paint pen to outline letters.
