Date Night Jar

 Date Night Jar

Inside each one of us is a hardcore romantic. We feed our souls on romcoms, hope to be Sleepless In Seattle, and are mostly, thoroughly Addicted to Love.

Unfortunately though, not all of us a rolling in wads of money. So romantic date ideas are hard to come by.

We have a simple and delightful DIY idea to make your life very very romantic indeed. And this one needs no breaking of the bank. All you need are a few popsicle sticks, some craft supplies, an empty glass jar that you would like to recycle, and loads of imagination!

So get ready to create your own, fabulous “Date Jar”, and spice things up, throughout the year! It’s a fun, and inexpensive way to keep your romantic life fresh, new, and exciting.

Supplies you need for this project:
Paint in three colours
Paint brush, or some foam sticks to paint the popsicle sticks
One long glass jar, washed and cleaned. Label removed.
Rope to wrap around the glass jar
Craft Glue
Paper doilies
Some cute stickers
A piece of red craft paper
Black sharpie

DIY - Material Required

The three colours, whichever ones you choose, are for three kinds of dates:

    Colour 1: Inexpensive ones at home. Need no planning
    Colour 2: About town, but not expensive. Need a bit of planning
    Colour 3: Special dates. Involve money and planning

Do two coats of paint on each popsicle stick. Leave them aside to dry.
