Valentine's Day LOVE to St. Patrick's Day LUCK - Reversible Candy Jars

7 Materials
30 Minutes
I love holidays. Who doesn't like a reason to celebrate? And, anytime I have the opportunity to decorate my house or throw theme party, I am IN! Like most of my projects, I'm a big fan of having them serve a dual purpose where possible. So, I created these candy jars to hold my favorite festive treats. When Valentine's Day arrives in February they read: "LOVE" and when St. Patrick's Day comes a month later, I rotate them to read: "LUCK".

We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers. Just so you know, Hometalk may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.

- Candy Jars/Tins x 4

- Paper

- Adhesive Letters

- Scissors

- Ruler

- Paper Cutter

Step 1: Measure & Cut.

Measure each one of your canisters. Cut your paper for each one accurately. I used a paper cutter to ensure my lines were as straight as possible.

Step 2: Glue your paper.

Using your spray adhesive, spray the backside of your paper according the instructions. I prefer to use a low-odor adhesive and always have a window open for proper ventilation. Once tacky, adhere your paper to your canister.

Step 3: Place Letters.

After smoothing down any bumps or wrinkles in your paper, place your adhesive letters in the center of each canister.

Once you have completed your LUCK side, turn your canisters over and repeat the steps above for your LOVE side.

Ta-da! One canister and two different uses. Fill with sweet treats for family members or put them on display for a party dessert table. Your guests will love them and you'll have two decor items for the price of one!
