Valentine's Day is a day to celebrate the love existing between a couple. Turn old cheese spread glass jars into romantic lanterns and use them to set the mood for a special Valentine's dinner.

Tip: For each jar, only a little bit of spray paint is used, so with one can of spray paint, one could make a few of these lanterns.
