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!
If you see that you are not getting comments from us, it is because of the silly "PROVE THAT YOU ARE NOT A ROBOT" on Blogger. There are only certain number of times you can comment and then you have to start proving you're not a robot. Really irritating when you have to click through picture after picture to try and leave a comment to our beautiful entries. So sorry about this. We wish Blogger would change this.
