Valentine’s Day Candygrams

Remember the dear days of exchanging Candygrams with friends in middle school? Oh, the nostalgia! We’re kickin’ it old-school with this slightly elevated DIY project. Combining super-cute, colorful Sweethearts (we must admit, we’re partial to the modern “text me” sayings) with an unexpected touch (cotton candy!) makes for an adorable gift to hand out come February 14.

SUPPLIES
  • Mason jars (we love the gold lids on these ones we nabbed at the dollar store!)
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Candy of your choice
  • Cotton candy
  • Handwritten labels

 

DIRECTIONS

Fill the jar halfway with the candy of your choice, then fill the top half with cotton candy. Make labels with a small hole on one end. Thread the ribbon through the hole, then tie the label and ribbon around the jar’s sealed lid. Let a bit of ribbon hang for some extra softness.
