Here is a sweet, easy and impactful display that you can use for Valentine’s Day, anniversary or a special birthday. We used mason jars and turned them upside down to look like a glass dome. Then with spray painted lids and your images inside, you create a display that’s festive and unique. We also created a yarn heart to display with the images. Ready to capture some love under glass? Directions follow or print out the project sheet.

What you’re seeing in the image is two larger displays (quart size mason jar) and one smaller size (pint size mason jar). We’ll give directions for that, but of course, you can do any configuration you like.
