Just because our days of exchanging Valentine’s Day cards at school are over doesn’t mean we can’t give our friends a little something on V-Day. Today I am going to show you how to make an adorable little DIY gift to give to your friends for Valentine’s Day. It’s called a Lucky in Love Jar!


Makes one Lucky in Love Jar

Here’s what you will need…

  • 1 shiny, lucky penny
  • red or pink ribbon
  • mason jar
  • hot glue gun
  • gift tag
  • 1 bag of Sweethearts (or your other favorite candy)


  1. Using the hot glue gun, glue your lucky penny smack dab in the middle of the tag (heads up, of course).
  2. Next, take a letter stamp set or a Sharpie and write the message “Here’s to getting lucky in love” onto the gift tag around the penny.
  3. Use the ribbon to tie the tag onto a mason jar and fill it with Sweethearts or your other favorite candy.
