 Plan Your Design

Before you start painting, it's a good idea to plan out your design. You can sketch it on a piece of paper first, or just wing it if you're feeling confident. 

You can also print a stencil heart shape from the internet and use double-sided tape to place on the jar and then paint around it for the outline.

The design can be as elaborate or as simple as you choose.

Start Painting

 Shake the paint pens well before use, and test them on paper first to ensure the ink is flowing smoothly. Then, begin painting your design onto the jar.

Start with the larger shapes first, and then add smaller details. 

Don't worry if your lines aren't perfectly straight – that's part of the charm of hand-painted items!

Let it Dry

After you've finished painting your design onto the jar, let it dry overnight. 

This will ensure the paint is fully set and won't smudge or rub off. 

Note: The painted jar is a handwash item and not dishwasher-friendly.

Once it is dry, you can fill the jar with your loved one's favourite sweets and surprise them with their personalised Valentine's Day gift!
