Valentine's Day is a perfect holiday to decorate with candy. Red hots, candy hearts, gum balls and jelly beans are perfect to use to fill glass jars to help decorate for the holiday. I found some pink, white and red jelly beans and decided they would be perfect for my apothecary jar.
Instead of just throwing them all together in the jar, I decided to separate them. My little helper loved doing this project.
The kid didn't eat a single one, until the end when he asked nicely if he could have one. I gave him a few for his hard work. Then we layered them in the jar.
And put them up on the cupboards to add a pop of color.
Even though they are mostly for looks and high on the cupboards, my husband likes to snitch a few here and there. We'll see if they last until Valentine's. So do you decorate with candy for the holidays?
