Valentine Candy Jar

2ps blog challenge:
Are you making anything special for Valentine’s Day? If so, share it with us.
Well, I can’t share anything for this year as I might spoil a surprise, but I can share something I made last year. Part of Trent’s gift was this altered Valentine candy jar – filled with M&M’s. 🙂

    WOW that jar is so cute! Is that rub-on letters on the jar? If it is, is it hard to put rub-ons on the jar?
