Mod Podge Valentine Heart Jar!

Project:  Mod Podge Valentine Heart Jar - Addie loved doing the other Valentine jar the other day, so we did another one today - just a different version.  Addie is really liking the Mod Podge - a little too much.  She really caked it onto the jar this time! 
Directions:  We ripped pieces of red, purple, and pink tissue paper into pieces and used Mod Podge to stick it to an old glass jelly jar.  When the jar was dry, Addie stuck felt, heart stickers onto the jar.  I helped her glue a large, red, felt heart to the lid and she stuck more felt, heart stickers over the top of the felt heart on the lid. 
 Materials Needed:  glass jar, red, pink, purple tissue paper, paint brush, Mod Podge, felt heart stickers, red felt, scissors, glue
