Valentine Decoupage Napkin Jars
I simply love recycled craft projects like these Valentine Decoupage Napkin Jars. They are so simple to make and create darling decor for holiday as well as a great container to hold candy. I think they are fun to use for giving gifts. Gosh, these decoupage napkin jars are even awesome for flower vases.
- Glass Jar
- Napkin(s) – Decorative one work great!
- Decoupage – I used DecoArt DecouPage!
- Paint Brush
- Ribbon or Twine
Directions for Decoupage Napkin Jars
Start with a clean and dry jar. Cut the napkin into small pieces.
Apply a generous layer of glue to a section of the jar then brush glue over the top too.
It is really fun to layer the napkins on the jar.
Once the glue is totally dry, tie a ribbon around the top and fill it with something fun – like flowers. I can think of so many things to put in decorated jars. Here are the first few that come to mind.
- Colored Pencils
- Love Notes
- Paper Straws
Here are a few more that I made.

Great Reasons to Craft
I am going to say this again. Crafting is just a great idea. It is proven that crafting can be really good for mental and emotional health. Studies show that making and crafting can lower anxiety. Another benefit to crafting is that it creates connection. When we make things and give them to others, we spread kindness and love. Here are my top ten reasons to craft with kids, and I mean kids of all ages.
- Mental Health Benefits – Crafting puts me in a good mood.
- Self Expression – Crafting allows me to express myself.
- Education and Growth – I learn new skills by making things.
- Connection – Crafting connects me others through workshops, classes and gifting.
- Decor – Through making and crafting, I can totally customize every aspect of my decor.
- Gift Giving – Gifts is totally my love language. I love to make handmade gifts.
- Offline Time – Crafting keeps me off of my phone and social media. We all know this can be beneficial.
- Income – Because I craft and sell items that I make, I have an additional income source.
- Fun – I like to have fun and to me, making things is fun.
- Socializing – Attending events where crafting is a part gets me out and around others with like minds.
