Two years ago, I was asked to help put together a Valentine’s Day dance for the adults in our church ward. I was excited because what parent doesn’t love getting out with their spouse?
I took on the charge of making a candy guessing game. We thought it would be fun to make a little kissing booth to set the jars in. I got home from our planning meeting and told him I would need a miniature kissing booth, just big enough to hold 2 mason jars.
He went to work in the garage, making my idea come to life, and I went to work counting kisses and filling jars.
I’m kind of particular about using my canning lids for things other than actual canning, so I whipped up these cardstock lids on the computer. You can download and print your own here.
DIY Kissing Booth
To make your own Kissing Booth you will need:
1 board – 27 1/2″ x 4 7/8″
1 board – 8 3/8″ x 3 7/8″
1 piece of wood 16 3/4″x 1″ x 1″
Begin by cutting the 1st board into 4 pieces – 2 measuring at 9 7/8″ long and 2 at 3 7/8″ long.
Cut the 16 3/4″ piece equally in half to 8 3/8″ long pieces.
Nail the 3 7/8″ long pieces you cut to the outside ends of the 8 3/8″ board, creating a base for your stand.
Using the wood glue, glue one of the 9 7/8″ boards to the top of the base.
Next glue the sticks to the back of the 2nd 9 7/8″ board, creating your signage.
Once the glue has dried, use more wood glue to attach the signage to the base.
Allow the glue to dry, and then paint.
The kissing booth has come out every year since as part of our home decor. I try to keep it stocked with a variety of candies for the kids to enjoy as they show love to each other. One year I envision throwing a Valentines themed party with the kids, and letting the winning guess take home a jar of candy.
