This project requires:
~a Mason jar (or any similar jar )
~acrylic paint (white, black, orange)
~a piece of felt
~clear spray OR some other coating to keep the paint from scratching off. (I used "Stickles".)
I painted the jar 2X with thin layers of paint. I let them dry well before coats. The third coat was put on with a sponge, to give the jar a bit of a "bumpy" effect.
I drew out the eyes, nose and mouth with a pencil. I then painted them with a couple of thin coats. I find it is better to do several thin coats of paint as opposed to putting on one thick coat.
When that was dry, I added stitches and outlined the nose with a Sharpie Marker. I coated the whole jar with Stickles to make it sparkle and shine! It also helps to keep the paint on so it doesn't cratch off so easily.
With a strip of felt, I glued it around the top of the jar. Once that is dry, it's ready for candy, candy cane or any other gift ideas you can think to fill it!
